This is a release of liability and waiver of rights

As group leader and in consideration for being permitted by Never Summer Nordic Inc. to use the Never Summer Nordic Inc. Hut System, I agree to the following waiver and release:

I acknowledge that skiing and wilderness travel have inherent risks, hazards and dangers for any person that cannot be eliminated, particularly in a backcountry environment in mountainous terrain.

I understand that these risks, hazards and dangers include, but are not limited to:

  1. Risks arising from skiing in areas that are not patrolled, where snow conditions are un-predictable and changing, where objects are not marked and hazards may not be visible, where slopes are not groomed, maintained or controlled, where weather is changeable and unpredictable and where avalanches occur.
  2. Risks involved in decision making and route finding in a backcountry environment in mountainous terrain and risks of getting lost and not reaching the hut.
  3. Such other risks, hazards and dangers that are integral to the sport of skiing and back- country travel in mountainous terrain.

As a group leader, I acknowledge that I am personally responsible for sharing all information with my group concerning Never Summer Nordic Inc. and Colorado State Park Regulations. As a group leader, I acknowledge that I am financially responsible for damages or problems arising from the use of the Never Summer Nordic Inc. Hut System.

  1. Dogs are prohibited in the area of the yurts/cabins because of the need to melt snow for drinking water. I acknowledge that the entire group may be asked to leave with no refund and further trips denied if anyone brings a dog.
  2. By leaving trash, intentionally being destructive the hut in any way, or leaving the hut unclean for the next guests; I acknowledge that I may be charged a cleaning fee.
