Attention Skiers & Snowboarders: Did You Know That Ski Resorts Aren't Liable For Accidents Involving Avalanches? 

This winter is expected to see a record-breaking amount of avalanches in the state. Since avalanches are an inherent risk of partaking in snow sports, this means that mountain resorts cannot be held accountable if an avalanche occurs on the property. There are still situations in which ski operators are liable for negligent actions, however, a ski resort has no duty to provide skiers notice of the risks of avalanches on its property, even if the ski operator is aware of the dangers.

That means, skiers and snowboarders, you need to be proactive before you head out skiing by checking the weather report to see if there are any warnings concerning avalanches risks in the area where you wish to ski.
