I understand that I must inform Northern Susitna Institute if any information listed above changes between now and completion of the course. Release of Liability: In consideration of the services of Northern Susitna Institute (NSI), I, the above-listed student, and my parent(s)/legal guardian(s), agree and acknowledge as follows: Although Northern Susitna Institute has taken reasonable steps to provide me with appropriate equipment and skilled staff for the course for which I have enrolled in, I acknowledge that the activities of the program have risks, including certain risks which cannot be eliminated without destroying the unique character of the activities. The same elements that contribute to the unique character of these activities can cause loss or damage to my equipment, accidental injury, illness, or in extreme cases, permanents trauma, disability, or death. I understand that NSI does not want to frighten me or reduce my enthusiasm, but considers it important for me to know in advance what to expect and to be informed of the activities’ inherent risks. The following describes some, but not all, of those risks. • Participants will be out of doors, where they are subject to numerous risks, environmental and otherwise. • Equipment may fail or malfunction, despite reasonable maintenance and use. • Environmental risks and hazards include rapidly moving, deep or cold water; dangerous plants and animals, including large animals; falling and rolling rock; lightning, floods, and unpredictable forces of nature, including weather which may change to extreme conditions without notice. Possible injuries and illnesses include, but are not limited to, sunburn, hypothermia, frostbite, dehydration and other mild or serious conditions. • Decisions are made by the instructors & students usually in a wilderness setting, based on a variety of perceptions & evaluations which, by their nature, are imprecise & subject to reasonable errors in judgment. Misjudgments may pertain to, among other things, a student’s capabilities, environment, terrain, weather conditions, natural hazards, & medical conditions. I acknowledge that the staff of NSI has been available to more fully explain to me the nature and physical demands of these activities and the inherent risks, hazards, and dangers associated with these activities. I understand that the description above of the risks is not complete and that other unknown or unanticipated risks may occur. I expressly acknowledge and assume the inherent risks identified herein and those inherent risks not specifically identified. Therefore I assume and accept full responsibility for myself and for injury, death, and loss of personal property and expenses suffered by me as a result of those inherent risks and dangers identified herein and those inherent risks and dangers not specifically identified, and as a result of my negligence or otherwise wrongful conduct in participating in these activities. My participation in this activity is purely voluntary; no one is forcing me to participate, and I elect to participate in spite of and with knowledge of the inherent risks. I understand that all final decisions will be made by the NSI instructors with the safety and well being of all students and instructors being first and foremost. I have instructed my child to obey the instructors and the rules and expectations they set forth. I understand that if the rules set forth are not followed, my son/daughter may be sent home at any point during the field course at my expense. Any dispute between NSI and me and/or my parent(s)/legal guardian(s) shall be governed by the substantive laws (not including laws which might apply the laws of another jurisdiction) of the state of Alaska, and any mediation or suit shall occur or be filed only in the State of Alaska. If I have any legal dispute with NSI which cannot be settled through discussions between the parties, I will attempt to settle the dispute through mediation before a mutually acceptable mediator whose name appears on the registry of names recognized by Alaska courts as qualified persons for mediation assignments. I also agree to pay all costs and attorneys’ fees incurred by NSI in defending a claim or suit if the claim or suit is withdrawn or to the extent a court or arbitration determines that NSI is not responsible for the injury or loss. If any part of this agreement is found by a court or other appropriate authority to be invalid, the remainder of the agreement nevertheless will be in full force and effect. This agreement is entered into voluntarily, after careful consideration and is binding upon the persons signing below, their heirs, executors, administrators, wards, minor children and other family members.
