It is that time again! Waiver signing!
Just a friendly reminder that this year the waiver signing is due the same time as payment, October 30th.
There are two waivers to sign, BC Alpine (club insurance) and the Kicking Horse Mountain Resort (RCR) waiver for ski clubs.
BC Alpine waiver:
You should have received an email from BC Alpine to send you a personalized link. If you have not, click here and enter your email address in the green box.
A waiver must be signed for each child registered, PLUS a parent. Please check over your details, and correct them if you need to.
If you are having trouble, please email me email@example.com . Do not postpone contacting me, as it can often be resolved quickly.
If you are not getting the email from BC Alpine, please check your Spam. If it is not there either, please email me to let me know using the email account you wish to be your primary contact point with GKHAT.
In addition to your regular waiver for your Season’s Pass, RCR asks us to sign their Event and Parental Consent Waiver Form. The easiest time to do this is when you sign your Season Pass waivers for them on-line, or when you pick up your season’s pass.
RCR have provided us with the following document to help us with the process. Please follow that link.
For those of you that have already signed your waivers, thank you.
For those of you who have not, please let me know if you have any issues.
Thinking snowy thoughts,

GKHAT’s goal is to provide a safe, fun, supportive environment where skiers can improve their overall skiing techniques and racing abilities together with their knowledge of safe skiing habits and healthy athletic lifestyle.
While skiing may not be top of mind for everyone, the summer is coming to a close, and many are excited for another awesome year of skiing. Remember to register your athletes for the 2017/2018 ski season for training at the Kicking Horse Mountain Resort in Golden, BC.
