CASE ENTRY

Brigance v. Vail Summit Resorts, Inc.

Woman taking ski lesson at Keystone, Colo. resort breaks her leg as she tries to exit chairlift. Must the resort operator pay damages? Indeed not, says the Tenth Circuit. She signed a waiver waiving liability for lift-unloading accidents, and there’s no sound reason to waive that waiver or to waive the other waiver that was printed on the back of her lift ticket.
