All Island Alpine Guides courses and trips take place in an outdoor, wilderness environment. This means that as a participant you will be encountering various risks, dangers and hazards some of which include avalanches, cornices, crevasses, cliffs, trees, creeks, rockfall, difficult travel conditions, weather, illness, equipment failure, wild animals, becoming lost as well as the possibility of mistakes being made by IAG guides and instructors. To participate in these activities you will be required to read and agree to our waiver as part of the registration process. You will also be required to sign the waiver at the start of the course or trip. In doing so you will waive or give up certain legal rights including the right to sue or to claim compensation following an accident.
Here you will find three different waivers. Each waiver is two pages long.
Please read the waiver applicable to the course or trip for which you are registered.
Trips operating on TimberWest Lands include Washington Backcountry, Alexandra Peak/Mount Adrian and trips in the Comox Lake area.
You may read the waivers directly on this page or download them from the links at the top.
