Here you will find three different waivers and an informed consent brochure. One waiver is for Avalanche Skills Training Courses, one for SAR Team Rope Rescue Technician Courses and the other for all other courses and trips. The informed consent brochure is for minors participating in Avalanche Skills Training Courses. Each document is two pages long.
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.
