KOKANEE VALLEY RACE SERIES

www.whistlerblackcomb.com/KVRS

Come out and have some fun with your friends and coworkers. The series is open to skiers, snowboarders and telemarkers with different gender and age divisions. No racing experience is required to join in on the fun of recreational racing. All you need is the desire to participate and we'll look after the rest.

Race Format:

  • Each Race we will endeavor to have a celebrity course setter to keep things interesting and different!
  • Races will now be 'Best Of' rather then combined times. This will enable people to come race either one run or two runs and still feature in the results. There will not be a course reset.

Everyone is eligible to win tons of great prizes.

Awards and presentations are still to be confirmed. Video will be available online after the event.

THIS IS A RELEASE OF LIABILITY & WAIVER OF CERTAIN LEGAL RIGHTS INCLUDING THE RIGHT TO SUE OR CLAIM COMPENSATION

1. The person who is taking part in ski, snowboard, or other winter sport racing, competition, tryouts, or training activities as an athlete, coach, staff member, prospective or active ski patrol member, volunteer, event credential holder, spectator, or other participant is referred to as “Participant.” I am the Participant or, if the Participant is a minor/infant, I am the Participant’s parent or legal guardian. I understand that skiing, snowboarding, winter sports recreation, race training, competition, ski or snowboard testing or tryouts, other equipment testing, wax testing, using freestyle terrain or terrain park features, performing any other training or competition related activities, and/or using any of the facilities of the ski area, including but not limited to use of the lifts, ski slopes, trails, and other equipment, for any purpose (the “Activity”), can be HAZARDOUS AND INVOLVE THE RISK OF PHYSICAL INJURY AND/OR DEATH.

2. I understand the dangers and risks of the Activity and that the Participant, as a “skier” and/or “competitor” (as may be defined by statute or other applicable law), ASSUMES ALL INHERENT DANGERS AND RISKS.

3. Exposure to COVID-19, disease and sicknesses (“sickness”) is an inherent risk of the Activity. Every Participant has the responsibility to enjoy a safe and healthy experience. The resort cannot eliminate the risk that a Participant is exposed while engaged in the Activity. The Participant agrees it is his or her responsibility to (1) follow all instructions, signage, warnings, and guidelines; (2) stay home if sick or experiencing symptoms of any sickness; (3) if required, wear a face covering and maintain at least 6 feet physical distancing from other guests, including in lift lines; and (4) wash and sanitize hands frequently.

4. I expressly acknowledge and assume additional risks and dangers that may result in property damage, physical injury and/or death that may be above and beyond the inherent dangers and risks of the Activity, including but not limited to: Falling or loss of balance; icy, slick or uneven surfaces; avalanches, cornices and crevasses; collisions with natural or man-made objects or other people; bumps, tree wells, downed timber, rocks, drainage channels, holes, debris, and other rugged mountainous terrain; marked and unmarked obstacles; unmaintained or unmarked trails/roads or trail obstructions; the negligence of Participant, Ski Area employees, event officials or organizers, a guide/instructor, or others (including selection of terrain that exceeds Participant’s ability); guests’ failure to comply with signage; collisions with snowmobiles and/or other motor or over-snow vehicles; equipment malfunction, failure or damage; improper use or maintenance of equipment; misloading, entanglements, or falls from ski lifts; varying visibility, storms, lightning, hail, snow and other adverse weather; becoming lost or separated; lack of shelter; limited access to and/or delay of rescue efforts or medical attention; Participant’s health condition, physical exertion, exhaustion, dehydration, hypothermia, altitude sickness, other sickness, or frostbite; and/or mental distress from exposure to any of the above. I UNDERSTAND THAT THE DESCRIPTION OF THE RISKS IN THIS AGREEMENT IS NOT COMPLETE AND VOLUNTARILY CHOOSE FOR PARTICIPANT TO PARTICIPATE IN AND EXPRESSLY ASSUME ALL RISKS AND DANGERS OF THE ACTIVITY, WHETHER OR NOT DESCRIBED HERE, KNOWN OR UNKNOWN, INHERENT OR OTHERWISE.

I understand that snowmobiles, snowmaking equipment, and snow-grooming equipment may be encountered at any time, and that falls, collisions and injuries are common.

6. I agree that the Participant is a “competitor” at all times, whether practicing or training for competition or in competition, or trying out or training for ski patrol, that Participant shall inspect the training and competition courses prior to participating in the Activity, and that Participant assumes the risk of all course conditions, including but not limited to course construction, layout and obstacles.

I UNDERSTAND THAT NEGLIGENCE INCLUDES FAILURE ON THE PART OF ANY RELEASED PARTY TO TAKE REASONABLE STEPS TO SAFEGUARD OR PROTECT AGAINST THE RISKS, DANGERS AND HAZARDS OF THE ACTIVITY.
