ASSUMPTION OF RISK AGREEMENT
This message is to inform and educate you about the lodge, not intimidate you. The lodge is located in a unique place and the wonders that surround us more than outweigh the associated hazards. Where else can you watch hummingbird families interact, catch large bull trout only minutes away, view wildlife, and walk trails meeting no one? This is a special place. The appeal of Sheep Creek is the remoteness of its backcountry location: it is also the hazard. Although the cabins are only a short distance from town, they are off the grid and out of cell range. There are no phones, televisions, or computers. Bridges and roads have washed out, equipment fails, injuries occur. Please read and fill out the following Agreement of Risk. If you have questions, please call owner Brian Bildson at 780-831-1087.
You are advised to read this document carefully
before signing as it is a legally binding agreement.
