By clicking on the JOIN button to become a part of the Seattle Eastside Ski and Snowboard Meetup you not only agree to the Terms and Conditions of the Meetup system but you agree to this ASSUMPTION OF RISK, WAIVER OF CLAIMS AND INDEMNITY AGREEMENT.
Users of Seattle Eastside Ski and Snowboard Meetup are advised that any decision to carpool to the mountains with others in the group is voluntary and entirely at the discretion of participants.
No background checks of drivers or participants, driver record checks or insurance checks are undertaken by Seattle Eastside Ski and Snowboard Meetup, and the group does not make any assurances or certifications regarding the condition, suitability or safety of the vehicles being used by participants in the carpooling system, the reliability or driving ability of participants or drivers, or whether those participants and drivers are insured. Seattle Eastside Ski and Snowboard Meetup recommends that participants exercise caution when selecting a potential carpool partner. Members should not accept rides or give rides to complete strangers. NEVER get in a vehicle/carpool with someone you have just met. NEVER accept offers for free stays or shares in condos or hotel rooms of trip participants that you have not spent time getting to know before the event.
By deciding to voluntarily give a ride or share a ride and carpool up to the mountains, you are agreeing that you are entirely responsible for your own safety while driving to and from the resort.

Participants Drivers/Riders. Responsibility for Insurance
It is the responsibility of individuals participating in a carpool/ride situation to:
1. To notify their insurance provider of their intent to carry non-family passengers and to ensure that they have adequate coverage to protect both themselves and their passengers.
2. It is the responsibility of the individual accepting a ride in a carpool to ensure that the driver of the vehicle has an acceptable driving record, is licensed accordingly and has adequate insurance to protect both driver and passengers.
Participants Drivers/Riders. Responsibility for Vehicle Maintenance
It is the responsibility of the driver to ensure that their vehicle is in good working condition and all maintenance performed in preparation for dangerous mountain driving conditions. This includes electronic stability system, brakes, engine, fluids and tires and all items pertaining to the safety of their vehicle.
All vehicles used by Seattle Eastside Ski and SnowSnowboard meetup drivers who carry passengers MUST have tires must have the M+S "all season" designation or snow tires from Oct 14-May 30 of each ski season and be checked for tire wear. Tires with OVER 20,000 miles are NOT considered safe for winter driving conditions. (If a driver does not believe the leadership of the meetup, we suggest you go to a local tire store and have them measure the tread.....they WILL tell you that you know longer have an "all season" tire and they must be replaced for MOUNTAIN DRIVING). A driver that has NOT met these conditions should NOT offer to take members in their vehicle. It is also the responsibility of the trip participant to decline a ride from a member that has an unsafe vehicle. It is the responsibility of the trip participant to ask a driver about the insurance, vehicle maintenance and driving habits of the driver before accepting a ride at their own risk.
Seattle Eastside Ski and Snowboard Meetup is in no way responsible for verifying or certifying the reliability, driving ability or insurance status of drivers and participants of day trips up to the mountains.
