RSS again successfully defends the operator of a ski resort

November 13, 2017 — A few days ago, the Court of Quebec released its decision on a claim arising from a fall sustained at the exit point of a chairlift operated at a ski resort.

Benoît Chartier convinced the Court that the employees of the ski resort had not been negligent, thereby causing the claim to be denied. As the Court declared, “the use of a chairlift presents certain inherent risks that the user has to assume: he must be somehow agile to get on and off at the right moment” [our translation].

This decision has a lot in common with a recent case in which Benoît successfully defended another ski resort against a similar claim.
