--Penn Live, a Pennsylvania based newspaper, is reporting that, "A man who plummeted off a bank onto a pile of rocks while skiing at the Liberty Mountain Resort can't sue the Adams County resort for his multiple serious injuries, a federal judge has ruled. The reason Quan Vu's lawsuit must be dismissed is simple, U.S. Middle District Judge John E. Jones III found. 'Mr. Vu's injuries were caused by an inherent risk of downhill skiing,' Jones wrote."

--Buckrail is reporting that, "an accident in Cody Bowl, Bridger-Teton territory just south of the Jackson Hole Mountain Resort ski boundary, has left a local pro skier in critical condition. JHMR ski patrol responded to a call at around 10:30 am reporting an injured skier at the bottom of No Shadows. The skier was believed to be standing on a cornice in between Four Shadows and No Shadows when the snow gave way, causing the skier to fall the length of the run. Patrollers were on the scene by 10:58 am and called Teton County Search and Rescue to assist with a helicopter evacuation. The skier is now being treated in the Eastern Idaho Regional Medical Center." To read more, click here.
