Avalanche case proceeds
A judge will let a jury decide whether Vail is responsible for the death of a 13-year-old Taft Conlin, who died in an inbound avalanche at the ski area in 2012.
Conlin’s parents filed a wrongful-death lawsuit against The Vail Corp., claiming that the resort violated the Colorado Ski Safety Act when it closed the upper access to the Prima Cornice run but did not close the lower entrance.
