Bloch & Chapleau is one of the few law firms in Colorado that has extensive experience in ski/snowboard and other recreational related injuries. The attorneys at Bloch & Chapleau have successfully litigated and received substantial awards including a case in which a jury awarded punitive damages against Vail Resorts for failing to supervise and train lift operators. 

In any ski accident, the primary question is whether the injury was related to a risk which the skier assumed. Collisions between skiers/snowboarders present unique types of cases. Collisions are becoming the most frequently litigated ski accident cases in the U.S. 

Most lift-related injuries occur while the skier is getting on or off of a lift. Such “loading and unloading” accidents are not considered an inherent risk of skiing.
