This article attempts to highlight some of the important differences in the legal enforceability of waivers. Currently, there is no uniform national standard for what are the "inherent risks" of skiing. Because the variance in liability rules can affect injured skiers so acutely, attorneys representing both ski resorts and injured skiers need to be aware of real differences in the enforceability of waivers in a sport not unfamiliar with serious injuries.
