According to the calgary sun, Jeffrey david lowe of red deeer sued lake louise for 'improperly designing, building, and maintaining a jump in the terrain park,' they also built 'the jump in the terrain park when it was obvious that the same would represent an extreme hazard to the invitees on the premises.' He also blamed salomon for improperly designing his ski bindings which caused him to breakl his leg on the jump. Both of these claims are complete crap, but the regardless of all the facts pointing against these companies and to the kid, the kid will still probably getthe money like in the whistler case. Whats even worse is all he did was break his leg! He's suing $750,000 over breaking hisleg. Louise has been starting to put more money and effort into terrain parks and this is what they get. They got a temporary park up with some small jumps and the kid breaks his leg (on maybe a 25 foot jump with a nice lip and steep long landing) and sues, what does this tell them? I was hoping the whistler claim was an isolated incident but i guess we can expect more of these ridiculous claims, encouraging ski resorts to not build terrain parks. thanks buddy.
suepr awesome cool!
