    Curious - were they asked to sign a waiver or given a ticket with T&Cs? Or was it just informal hop on the next chair thing?

    Even if they did -- those waivers / T&Cs are not worth the paper their printed on if a jury finds Silverton acted recklessly / negligently.

    Yes, they do things their way.

    If you don't like it, ballsack it up and try to do it better,

    But the whining and character attacks is just compleeetly feeble.
    +1 - I enjoy the peanut gallery of core bros too rad for the experience, and the crusty locals who come out of the woodworks to bash the operation.

    Since you've probably been to Silverton more than any dentist here, you should start a "Ongoing Silverton stoke" thread!

    Only half of that is true. There can be a world of difference between reckless and negligent conduct if a waiver is involved.

    So you are saying that a perfectly healthy woman who ended up paralyzed from the waist down from unloading from a ski lift should be shot?
