Release of Liability and Indemnification Agreement For Spirit Mountain Recreation Area Authority
While we at Spirit Mountain work hard to provide a great experience for you and your family, there are still certain hazards that require your full attention and vigilance. Always use common sense and follow the tips listed below to make your visit safer and more fun for everyone!
Your Responsibility Code
- Always stay in control, and be able to stop or avoid other people or objects.
- People ahead of you have the right of way. It is your responsibility to avoid them.
- You must not stop where you obstruct a trail, or are not visible from above.
- Whenever starting downhill or merging into a trail, look uphill and yield to others.
- Always use devices to help prevent runaway equipment.
- Observe all posted signs and warnings. Keep off closed trails and out of closed areas.
- Prior to using any lift, you must have the ability to load, ride, and unload safely.
Be advised that all marking devices, signage, and/or equipment covers are used by Spirit Mountain to inform you of any potential hazards. These markers are no guarantee of your safety and will not protect you from injury. Oversnow vehicles, grooming tractors, and snowmaking equipment may be on the slopes at any time. Always give them plenty of space! We ask that you do not build jumps or obstacles of your own on the runs as they may become an unknown hazard to others.
In order to maximize the safety and enjoyment of all our guests, we will not tolerate irresponsible behavior. Those pass holders who do not adhere to the Spirit Mountain polices and Responsibility Code listed here risk losing their Season Pass privileges for doing so. Management reserves the right to suspend or revoke Season Passes in any areas of the facility for any behavior deemed inappropriate, including the use of substances which impair physical or mental abilities. We ask our guests to enjoy the openness and freedom of the winter experience: Without profanity. Without using rude behavior or gestures. Without defacing property. Without skiing or snowboarding in closed areas. Without inappropriate behavior toward Spirit Mountain personnel or other guests. Without skiing, snowboarding, or jumping recklessly. And, without improper riding of the chairlifts (which includes bouncing, swinging, vandalizing, throwing snowballs, spitting from the lifts, and jumping out of the lifts). Remember, this is your playground. Please keep it clean and be considerate of others.
I Understand and accept the fact that skiing and snowboarding in their various forms are hazardous sports that have many dangers and risks. I realize that injuries are a common and ordinary occurrence of these sports. I agree, as a condition of being allowed to use the Spirit Mountain facility and premises, that I freely accept and voluntarily assume all risks of personal injury or property damage which results in any from negligence, conditions on or about the premises and facilities, the operations of the area including, but not limited to, grooming, snowmaking, chairlift operations, actions of Spirit Mountain personnel, or other activities at the area, accepting myself the full responsibility for any and all damage or injury of any kind which may result. As a season pass holder I waive all rights to any photographic or video images taken by or for Spirit Mountain Recreation Area while exercising the right to use my Season Pass.

Undersigned are advised, understand and agree that under Minnesota law any person using a ski area for the purpose of skiing, which includes, without limitation, sliding downhill or jumping on snow, ice or features on skis, a toboggan, a sled, a tube, a snowbike, a snowboard or any other device; or for the purpose of using any of the facilities of a ski area, including but not limited to ski slopes, trails and features is considered a “skier” and, further, that Minnesota law provides that a skier using the facilities of a ski area assumes certain “inherent dangers and risks of skiing” as defined in the Colorado Ski Safety Act (the “Act”) and the Skier’s Responsibility
Code (the “Code”). IN ADDITION, ADULT ACKNOWLEDGES, UNDERSTANDS AND AGREES THAT BY SIGNING THIS AGREEMENT, ADULT
FOR HIM/HER SELF AND, IF APPLICABLE, ON BEHALF OF MINOR, IS VOLUNTARILY ASSUMING ALL DANGERS AND RISKS OF SKIING, INHERENT OR OTHERWISE, AND IS WAIVING RIGHTS, AND RELEASING CLAIMS IN CONNECTION WITH DANGERS AND RISKS ABOVE AND BEYOND THOSE ADDRESSED BY THE ACT, THE CODE AND BY MINNESOTA LAW.
Undersigned understand and agree that the sport of skiing in its various forms, including snowboarding, involves risks, dangers and hazards that may cause serious personal injury or death and that injuries are a common and ordinary occurrence. Risks include, but are not limited to, changes in terrain, weather and snow surfaces, ice, moguls, water, bare spots, rocks, stumps, debris, fences, posts, trees, chairlift and surface lift equipment and towers, light poles, signs, buildings, roads and walkways, rails, barrels, boxes, pole jams, jumps and other terrain features (including the angle and length of their approaches, take-off ramps and landing areas) both in and out of the terrain park, padded and non-padded barriers and obstacles, snowmaking and snow grooming equipment and operations, snowmobile operations, collisions with other persons and other natural and manmade hazards, including collisions with obstacles adjacent to and off the skiable terrain, such as snowmaking pipes, hydrants, guns, wands, and other snowmaking equipment, rocks and trees, and improperly-adjusted or malfunctioning equipment. I acknowledge the risks in the sport can be greatly reduced by taking lessons, abiding by the Skier Responsibility Code (known as Your Responsibility Code), obeying the laws of Minnesota, and using common sense.
Participant assumes the responsibility of maintaining control at all times while skiing. Adult agrees to read, to have Minor read and, if necessary explain to Minor all posted signs and warnings including instructions on use of lifts, trails, features and equipment and Undersigned agree that Participant will obey those signs and warnings located on the property or at any facility or premise of the Resort and to obey instructions from Resort staff. Adult understands and agrees that Minor will be using ski lifts without a ski instructor, Resort representative or other adult present.
Undersigned understand and agree that Participant must have the physical dexterity and knowledge to safely load, ride and unload the lifts. Undersigned assume the risks of riding the lifts and engaging in any Activity accessible from the lifts or from the ground or snow surface. Undersigned are advised that snowmobiles, snowmaking, snow-grooming and other equipment or vehicles may be encountered at any time and that Participant should be alert for and avoid such equipment. Undersigned understand and agree that the use of ski area facilities involves risks including, but not limited to, all of the risks mentioned above, as well as high elevation, marked and unmarked obstacles, known and unknown terrain and freestyle features, wildlife encounters, falling trees and limbs, slick or uneven surfaces, surfaces covered with ice and snow, deep snow conditions and tree wells, unstable ice and snow including but not limited to snow slides and avalanches, rugged mountainous terrain, dehydration, overexertion, acts of other skiers and equipment malfunction. Undersigned also understand and agree that there are risks involved in decision-making and conduct of Resort’s employees involved with an Activity, including, but not limited to, the risks involved with rescue operations and/or medical care conducted or provided by Resort’s personnel inside or outside of Resort’s boundaries and the risks associated with decisions made by Resort personnel to open and/or close terrain. Undersigned understand and agree that entering or skiing in a “CLOSED” or “UNAUTHORIZED” area is illegal and more dangerous to Participant and others than skiing in open areas of the ski area.
HELMETS ARE REQUIRED FOR PARTICIPATION IN ON-SNOW EVENTS AT SPIRIT MOUNTAIN RECREATION AREA. Undersigned understand and agree that, although Participant may be wearing a helmet, a helmet cannot guarantee Participant’s safety and no helmet can protect the wearer against all potential head injuries or prevent injury to the wearer’s face, neck or spinal cord. Undersigned understand and agree that Participant is responsible for ensuring his/her equipment functions properly including, but not limited to, bindings, restraints and built-in safety features of the equipment. In snowboarding, cross-country, Nordic skiing, telemark skiing, snowblading, and ski boarding, the binding system will not ordinarily release during use. These bindings may not be designed to release as a result of forces generated during ordinary operation. Adult acknowledges on Adult’s and Minor’s behalf that falls and collisions occur and INJURIES or DEATH may result from participation in an Activity.
As a participant in the Activity, Participant may be involved in racing, competition, performance, demonstration or special event programs. Undersigned recognize, understand and agree that participation in such programs is more hazardous and dangerous than recreational skiing. The Undersigned further understand and agree that as a participant in a racing, competition, performance, demonstration or special event program, Participant is a competitor at all times, whether warming up, practicing for competition or in competition. Participant will always be provided an opportunity to conduct a reasonable inspection of the training, competition, event or race course and make his/her own decision about whether to participate, given the conditions at the time and taking into account Participant’s skill level and experience in courses or venues of similar difficulty. Undersigned understand, agree and represent that Participant will always engage in reasonable inspection and decision-making pertaining to participation. Undersigned freely assume all risk of all course conditions including but not limited to, course design, course construction, course layout, course terrain, course jumps, features and obstacles and course maintenance. Participant may be involved in travel to and from an Activity or events over snow or ice covered roads in inclement weather and Undersigned accept such risks. Participant may also be entering into and using extreme or freestyle terrain that contains, but may not be limited to cliffs or drops, moguls, jumps, hits, ramps, banks, jibs, rails, fun boxes, half-pipes, quarterpipes, snowcross, water, barrels, freestyle bumps and other constructed and natural features. Participation in the Activity shall not in any way eliminate the risks of skiing or risks involved in riding ski lifts.
