Ski Area News

Mt. Bachelor and Powdr Corp. today announced they have signed a contract with lift manufacturer Doppelmayr to install a new east side chairlift, the Cloudchaser,  in time for the 2016-17 holiday season. The high-speed detachable quad chairlift, which represents a capital investment of approximately $6 million, was approved by the U.S. Forest Service in 2013 as part of Mt. Bachelor’s 10-year Master Development Plan. The lift’s location on the mountain’s east side will provide greater protection from the elements during inclement weather. The additional 635 acres of lift-served terrain accompanying the new lift pushes us 4,318 skiable acres to make Mt. Bachelor the fifth largest ski area in the United States.” 

The Colorado Supreme Court ruled in May that avalanches are among the “inherent dangers of skiing” so ski resorts can’t be held liable for people killed by slides within their boundaries.  The 5-2 ruling came in a lawsuit brought by the widow of Christopher Norris, who was killed in 2012 after being caught in a slide on a designated run in Winter Park.   Colorado’s Ski Safety Act limits the state’s ski industry to $250,000 in damages from lawsuits filed by the family of those killed. That cap has been tested many times since the legislation was enacted in 1979, but no jury or court ever has awarded injured skiers or bereaved families more than that amount. The law includes a list of the potential dangers that skiers assume the risk for, such as ice, packed powder, cliffs and trees but not avalanches specifically. However, it does include “snow conditions as they exist or may change,” and the Supreme Court ruled that covers inbound avalanches.  In a dissent, Justice Monica Marquez argued that unlike weather, snow conditions or terrain, the average skier does not have the training to assess the risk of an avalanche.  According to the dissent, Montana’s ski law was changed last year to say that avalanches do not qualify as inherent dangers, and Alaska ski operators can be held liable if they do not adhere to their avalanche-control plans.
