The YETI Outdoor Program makes every effort to provide quality programming and to manage the risk posed in any of the provided programs. Careful consideration is given to the size of groups, adult to student ratios, the types of activities undertaken, equipment used, terrain selected and instructors’ decision making. There are, however, inherent risks involved in outdoor activities. These include a host of factors during travel and while participating in activities ranging from environmental (weather, terrain, animals, etc.) to human actions and inactions. It is important that parents understand the types of activities their adolescents will be participating in and acknowledge the risks associated with these activities. If you have any questions or concerns, please seek clarification from teachers or administrators at Prince Charles Secondary School, YETI Outdoor Program or from outside sources. By completing the informed consent question below, you acknowledge that you understand the risks involved and are providing a digital signature of informed consent. Do not do so until you have read this entire proposal in full. You do have choice and it is acceptable for you not to offer consent for this activity.
Transportation for this activity will be private vehicles.
Risks associated with this trip include, but are not limited to, road hazards while traveling on highway and city roads, cuts and/or abrasions from snowshoe crampons, blisters from footwear, hypothermia, and frostbite. Avalanche risks will always be present and can not be completely avoided during winter excursions. We will remain within the ATES rating of simple terrain, however avalanche risks may result in burials that could cause asphyxiation, broken bones, and head trauma as a result.
