Ski Lift/ Resort Accidents
Skiing is an incredibly popular pastime for many individuals and families throughout the long, snowy New England winters. Massachusetts boasts a few of its own ski resorts, including Bradford, Wachusett Mountain, Nashoba Valley, and Blue Hills. Moreover, thousands of Massachusetts citizens spend weekends and vacations skiing at large resorts in Vermont, New Hampshire, and Maine. Despite the striking beauty of the mountains and the thrill of skiing and other snow sports, even the most advanced skiers are vulnerable to dangerous conditions. Whether a “bunny hill” novice or a “black diamond” expert, you are at risk of injury from all directions when on the slopes.
Although in recent years many skiers have taken greater safety precautions before setting out—by wearing helmets and double-checking their ski bindings, for example—some forces are outside of a skier’s control.
