Limited Liability Statement/Personal Liability Insurance

As a member of a snowmobile club, I the undersigned, owner of the snowmobile described below, declare that I am liable for the use of a trail in conformance with the snowmobile laws and rules of the State of Vermont. Without limiting the generality of the foregoing, I declare that I am well aware of the risks related to the presence of tree branches, stones and soil on the trail as well as the risks related to the maintenance and signing of a trail. I consequently declare that I deny my own recourse to any damage, be it of any kind, that could happen to me in the use of a trail.

I also pledge that I will inform any person to whom I would lend or rent the snowmobile that I own, of the risks above mentioned and will advise them that the association, the club or the owner of the trail do not assume any responsibility for the damages they could undergo while using a trail.

As of September 1, 2003, every individual operating a snowmobile in Vermont is required to have personal liability insurance. The minimum required coverage is $25,000 for one injury or $50,000 for two or more injuries or deaths with a minimum of $10,000 property damage.

The fine for operating without the insurance is $616.00 plus court costs.

All snowmobilers born after July 1, 1983 must have and carry with them when riding, a Vermont Snowmobile Safety Certificate or equivalent.

Please Note: To offset the cost of the PayPal account, we must add a 5% charge per transaction to the cost of TMAs and/or sweatshirts, tee shirts, hats and decals.

TERMS

In order to protect landowners who make their lands available for recreational uses by members of the public, the State of Vermont has passed legislation limiting the liability of those landowners to members of the public who use the land for recreational purposes. This includes the use of property for snowmobiling. Because a landowner has made land available without consideration for recreational purposes, there is no assurance that the land is safe for recreational uses, nor does it create any duty on a landowner of land to inspect the land to discover dangerous conditions. Thus you as a member of VAST when using any of the trails which constitute the Statewide Snowmobile Trail System (SSTS) use these trails knowing that you have no assurance that the trails are safe or have been inspected. You must take care to use them with caution for yourself, and due regard for your safety and that of others using the Trails. You are deemed to have assumed all of the risks attendant, the land on which the (SSTS) is laid out and all of the risks inherent in snowmobiling. As a member of a VAST snowmobile club, I the undersigned, owner of the snowmobile described above, declare that I am liable for the use of a VAST trail as part of the (SSTS) in conformance with the snowmobile laws and rules of the State of Vermont.

Without limiting the generality of the foregoing, I declare that I am well aware and accept that snowmobiling is an inherently risky activity. As an off-road experience, trail conditions may change without warning and trail signing is not a legal requirement. When signage is provided, it is used for directional purposes only. I assume all risk of personal injury, death or property loss resulting from any cause whatsoever, including, but not limited to the risks, dangers and hazards of snowmobiling. VAST shall not be liable for any such personal injury, death or property loss and I waive all claims with respect thereto. I also waive, release and forever discharge VAST and any of its directors, offers, agents, servants and successors from any and all claims for loss, damages, costs, contributions, indemnification or any other instance whatsoever on account of, or in any way growing out of all personal injuries, death or property damage of any nature arising out of the use of the (SSTS), unless the same is the result of willful or wanton misconduct. I also pledge that I will inform any person to whom I would lend or rent the snowmobile that I own, of the risks mentioned above and will advise them that VAST, club or the landowner of the trail does not assume any responsibility for the damages they could undergo while using a VAST trail.

Riders must carry proof of insurance and safety certificate with them at all times while riding.

I have read and agree to the terms above. Type your full name below to sign this agreement.
