lease clause regarding snow removal by tenant

i just received a lease where there is a clause stating the tenant is responsible for removing snow from the walkway in front of the premises. if i sign this as the tenant, am I liable for any injuries resulting from a fall on snow or ice or is the homeowner still responsible? also what happens if i am away on vacation and/or are otherwise unable to clear the snow, can i be held accountable?

another clause states that if i or anyone else gets injured on the premises i cannot hold the owners responsible. can that be enforced?

thank you
