The state of Colorado boasts an impressive 26 ski resorts that service millions of local, national and international skiers and snowboarders every year. Colorado’s ski industry has flourished over the past three decades and skier visits have increased to more than 12 million every year. Because of the widespread popularity of the sport, the Colorado Ski Safety Act was created to dictate the rules that a skier must follow to ensure his or her own safety as well as the safety of others. The Act also outlines the responsibilities of a ski resort to maintain lifts, trails, and slopes to ensure a safe environment.
Even with these laws and guidelines in place, accidents still occur on the ski slopes of Colorado. If you or someone you love has suffered injury because of negligence on the part of the ski resort or another skier or snowboarder, you may be able to seek compensation with the help of a talented Denver personal injury lawyer.
