Out of safety concerns for guests, employees and our homeowner community, as well as concerns for individual privacy, Elk Ridge Resort prohibits the operation or use of unmanned aerial systems, or drones, by the general public - including recreational users and hobbyists - without the prior written authorization from Elk Ridge Resort management. This prohibition includes drones used for filming or videotaping, as well as any drone use by media or journalists operating above or within the Elk Ridge Resort area boundaries. This prohibition on drone operations or use extends to any drones launched or operated from within Elk Ridge proper, as well as drones launched from private property outside of Elk Ridge Resort area boundaries.
Any authorized operation of aerial drones may be governed by Transport Canada rules and regulations, local law enforcement as well as those policies separately established by Elk Ridge Resort, which may include certification, training, insurance coverage, indemnification requirements, and waivers or releases of liability.
Any violation of this policy may involve eviction from your accommodation(s), as well as confiscating of any drone equipment, and may subject violators to any damages, including, but not limited to, damages for violations of privacy and/or physical or personal injuries or property damage, as well as regulatory fines and legal fees.
