    Looks like the peak 8 wind meter blew away between around 11 last night. Peak 6 readings kept climbing until the peak of 116 mph at 2am. 8 routinely shows higher winds than 6, so who knows what 8 could've peaked at.

    Yep, checked last night around 11pm with Peak 6 @ 91mph and Peak 8 @ 98mph. You know Peak 8 peaked at 120+, maybe 130 mph.

    I've had biking on the brain too. Looks like working the holiday and having a long weekend after could pan out alright.

    I skied Mary Jane today. Conditions were better than expected, but Iím a pessimist currently. It was windy, but as a graduate of Lovelandís #9 chair, it wasnít bad at all. Lifts ran all day, but there were more than a few trees down on the groomed trails. Patrol was out with chainsaws clearing the way. Skiing, bombs and chainsaws seems like a good gig.

    So, apparently the need for the resorts to follow any of colorado tramway rules has been negated by the appeals court. At this point, the safety rules are not enforceable by the government.

    Seems quite odd to me... i guess benny is on his own the next time he has trouble getting off the lift.

    I don't know. This one is pretty cut and dry to me. the lift didn't malfunction, she just didn't get out of the way when unloading and the chair hit her. It would be different if the lift had malfunctioned causing injury. If she wins this, where does it end. Chair 9 has a similar issue consistently because the bullwheel is right at the unload point, so the chairs swing around and hit people pretty often. This is often compounded by a head wind when offloading. Is it the ski area's fault that the lift hits you?

    There was no January thaw because there was nothing to thaw. Itís been like the 2020-21 thaw.

    Ice coast conditions for sure. No need to anyone to travel to CO. Go to WA.

    I donít know either but perhaps not so cut and dry. Article states person unloading in front of her fell. In that scenario would you not expect a reasonable liftie paying attention to stop or slow the chair for a person sprawled across the off load ramp???

    Yet ski sales just keep increasing, it's insane.

    That is not what the opinion says. You should actually read it. https://www.courts.state.co.us/Court...9ca0512-PD.pdf

    It is pretty big though, stating that an exculpatory contract can defeat a negligence per se claim which just leaves gross negligence, recklessness, or willful and wanton. The negligence claim fell flat on it's feet, but the per se claim is a lot more nuanced and I bet will be the focus of the case in the next round.

    Jim, are you some kind of attorney?
