Vail Files Countersuit Against Injured Skier

In what is believed to be a first for the resort, Vail has filed a countersuit against a skier who sued after being injured while skiing, The Denver Post reported.

"It was never a big case, but now they're coming after her and threatening her with attorney fees," said Joseph Bloch, the lawyer representing the skier, Julia Parsons, a Vail, Colo., real estate agent.

Vail is suing Parsons for breach of contract, arguing that in purchasing a season pass she had agreed to waive her right to sue.
