A Bend teenager who was paralyzed after being injured on a Mt. Bachelor ski jump, and then was told he was legally barred from suing the resort, has been given a long awaited victory before the Oregon Supreme Court. He can sue the resort. And the case will go to trial.
The high court ruled that just because there is a waiver of liability for injury that goes with every ticket bought at Mt. Bachelor, it doesn’t mean that Mt. Bachelor isn’t completely free of liability. The ruling is sending a chill through ski resorts, river rafting services, ice skating rinks and other recreation facilities open to the public.
