The defendent claims his insurance company should pay but even his lawyer says that is not the case.

The second article asks if anyone witnesses a skier throwing a snowboarder off a chairlift.

Is this where ski culture is heading?

Here is a link to the story.

If the parents won't then a DI should.

Yeah, definitely a generational thing. In the past every person on the slopes was just nice as could be and even if social media existed back then, there wouldn't be so much as a tweet or a forum post about someone acting less than perfect.

I mean, it's not as if there was a period of multiple decades that spanned the last several generations where etiquette was SO bad that it created a war and a stigma against certain pieces of equipment to the point where enough people still hold a grudge dozens of years later that resorts can thrive while banning an entire segment of ski culture.
