    Are we really discussing this again. All 3 were males under 35 going way too fast. The demographic of most skier deaths. 2 had extremely old equipment, one of them was even doing a "retro" day on his grandfathers skis. Were the trails intermediate, clearly not. And that has been fixed. Were they icy? Yup. Given a more normal ski year, you will see the snowmaking depths on those trails groomed to take away the pitch. Will they address the entrance to Wayout, yes, eventually.

    I know enough and have seen fatal ski cases been brought to court and won over less. I have been first hand part of more ridicules cares that have paid out/settled then the original Jerry vs Snowgun as mention in OP. Don’t have time or care enough to figure out if any of the Huntah bro deaths on new terrain are in court but all I’m saying is they have a more then fair chance if ended up there.

    Back of your ticket flapping in yo face means poop emoji.

    We live in life of sue happy morons. I saw a case of a lady that stepped in a pothole while charging her boots in parking lot and won.

    Euro Land skiing has it good. Your dumb and die and that’s it. Your dumb and dead. End of story. Not so much here in good ol’ Trump USA.

    Yes, ski areas get sued all the time for injuries and fatalities. How often do those lawsuits lead to redesigns?

    Again, what specific trail changes do you think Hunter should complete?

    How experienced are you skiing this new terrain? If there are problems with it, one would think you could point directly to what needs to change.

    I wonder how many people have sued Mount Washington for its unsafe conditions. Hope it wont lead to them re-grading tucks!

    I just hope that this litigious society we're currently living in, where if any goes wrong it has to be someone else's fault since apparently nobody ever does anything wrong themselves these days, doesn't keep going further and further? What's next? Let's sue the operator of the snowcat who groomed the slope the night before? Or maybe sue the manufacturer of the snowmaking equipment since it didn't produce "perfect" snow all the time? Or maybe get a class action suit going against everyone who skied that trail that entire day before an injury happened since they "obviously" detrimentally altered the condition of the slope prior to an accident happening.....

    As the first line of most every waiver that is on the back of a lift ticket or on the sheets we sign if we buy a pass states "Skiing is an inherently dangerous sport...."

    Don't even speculate !!!!!! Stupid unprepared hikers screw things up for everyone . Hope this doesn't become a precedent .

    From a skiing perspective, how one could sure for Tucks is beyond me. No lifts, no infrastructure and no grooming or maintenance (it's Backcountry!). Granted, there is volunteer patrol but they do not actively mitigate avalanche activity like an actual resort patrol would. But like has been mentioned, a good lawyer and more importantly the right Jury (everyone in US sees lawsuits as winning Powerball, right?) and anything can go.
