I found your input very insightful. I appreciate your input as one who works in the industry.
Let's hope somehow all this crap can be put to rest once and for all.
Riders assume all risk. Be it park or otherwise unless some company truck, snowmobile, or snowcat runs you over etc. That's another story.
Take care man, and best to you.
Word word. I just didn't want you to think I was hating on their parks.
I agree unfortunately as a society we seem to be going the other direction, and quickly.
The world owes you everything, everything that happens is someone elses fault etc.
Personal accountability went out the window.
As far as the snowmobiles and snowcat thing. That's one of the reasons a lot of places are strict about ducking ropes. Generally places run a cats working sign or two in addition to a trail being closed but if somebody hits a snowmobile or a cat that's bad news all around.
Somebody in the small town I grew up in rolled their ankle in a pot hole and sued the town for 80k and won i believe. And this was like 15 years ago. In a town with 400 year round residents, no stoplights in the entire county, but because there was a small pothole in this tiny bumfuck town, that this person couldn't walk around, they pretty much got a free house.
I understand in some situations, there really is some serious bullshit, but a lot of times it's just people trying to exploit their injuries to get rich, or switch the blame to pay for their injuries.
