I Was Hurt at a Ski Resort – What are My Legal Options?
Colorado is well-known around the country as the place to be for fun snow activities such as skiing and snowboarding. Every year, thousands flock the slopes of Colorado’s snow-covered mountains looking for fun and excitement for a few days with friends and family. While skiing promises to be loads of fun, it can also end tragically when an individual gets hurt duet to someone else’s negligence. It is important to note before we even start that over 90 percent of all accidents involve a human element, and legally, there’s no such thing as bad luck or a fluke or accident – someone didn’t do what they were supposed to do, thereby leading to your Colorado Ski injury accident. To this end, it is important to hold the guilty party accountable for their negligence.

Some of the most common causes of skiing injuries include:
- Faulty equipment – Poor or no maintenance of ski equipment can cause them to malfunction. These equipment are usually expensive so ski resort management always tries to cut corners by not servicing them often enough, to the detriment of people like you and I.
- Collisions and crashes – All skiers are expected to abide to certain rules such as watching their speed, watching out for other skiers, making sure to wear visible gear and avoiding certain areas as not doing so may lead to crashes and collisions with other individuals. Failure by ski resorts to enforce these rules may make them liable for your injuries
- Failure to act – If a ski resort is warned about a chairlift that is swaying precariously by several holiday goers but fails to do something leading to the chair to continue swaying until it one day throws off patrons into the snow down below, leading to catastrophic injuries, the ski resort may be held legally liable for their injuries.
