OK I opened up today's paper and read that this skier is suing the lift company over her injury, there wasn't much detail but this is what the article said:
'A woman who collided with a snowboarder while getting off a chair lift at a Victorian ski field yesterday accused the lift operators of negligence. Kerry Chisholm said she had not fully recovered from the knee surgery sustained after the incident, and is now suing Falls Creek Ski Lifts Pty for damages in the NSW District Court. She told court she was with three other skiers on a four-man chair lift when the incident happened at Falls Creek ski fields on August 21, 2001.'
I remember there was something not long ago about a child in a terrain park suing, now people who can't ride chairlifts properly are suing!
