D-eye: mod note: If you'd like to discuss the legal aspects of skiing and injuries can you please take it to another thread. It's not something that will just affect Perisher even though this case is from Perisher.

Kelpieboy: There are a lot and I mean a lot of people who travel through life without insurance of any kind except that which is proscribed by law. The chances are that the person acting super stupid and took out your ACL or worse was one that does not have such insurance. This is simply a statement of fact when the low rates of insured persons are considered. It was much simpler in the old days though ,fella did the dumb stuff caused an incident which led to an accident which left a member of my family with a depressed fracture of a cheekbone .................. lets just say lawyers weren't required however justice was prompt ,fair and deserved.Physical violence upon the person was not the justice however the lesson was well understood by the miscreant who had a particularly long uphill walk in deepish snow to the third nearest SP hut where a report was written and the fellow escorted to front office who promptly ripped up his ticket ,5 of 7 day pass as I remember it. The old days may not have been perfect but it worked well.
One of my early mentors recited this exchange to me: I'll smash your head in I'll sue So what. Your head's still smashed in 2 takeaways: The law is an inadequate instrument to change behaviour Retrospective punishment does not affect the immediate problem

Jonathan_P: There you go, interesting was not aware of that. Understand your perspective, however if the person has no insurance and no significant assets you may not be able to seek compensation.
Yup - that's called being judgement proof - whatever damages are awarded against someone with no assets are worthless. Unfortunately I had a car written off by someone like that - driving without taking her medication, she had a seizure behind the wheel and hit my (parked) car, sending it into the car in front. Chassis warped and radiator punctured. Car was only worth $4,000, so not worth insuring for comprehensive cover.

Ret-ro: I can report that they are note very good shots....
On what evidence do you base that assumption Ret-ro ? Many of us on the western side have done contract shooting over the years and being tightass graziers we hate wasting ammo.

Ted Harper: FYI from National Parks: NSW National Parks and Wildlife Service (NPWS) will be conducting a ground shooting program within the Perisher Range Resorts and Charlotte Pass Ski Resort areas between Thursday 26 November and Wednesday 16 December 2020. The areas targeted in this program include: Charlottes Pass village Perisher Village (all areas including Blue Cow) Smiggin Holes Village Link Road Guthega Village The objective of this program is to decrease the impacts associated with rabbits on both the environment and resort infrastructure within the resort areas of Kosciuszko National Park. The program includes shooting operations undertaken by authorised NPWS officers and NPWS contractors. The operations will be carried out between the 6pm and 9pm each evening. However, no shooting will be undertaken as a component of this program on weekends, public holidays, NSW public school holidays or during public events. Shooting operations will also be limited to times and areas of low visitation and lodge/accommodation occupancy.
I can report that they are note very good shots....

nezumi: Not mandatory, but I also feel like people shouldn't be made a pariah just because they are trying to get some compensation when they are injured and not at fault. Most Home Contents policies include an amount of cover for Personal Liability. I know my maximum amount is $20,000,000, so I am covered if I inadvertently cause a collision on the slopes (or while riding my bicycle).

Jonathan_P: So are you talking about some type of mandatory insurance policy i.e. no coverage = no ski

Jasper Schwarz: Skier's should be held accoutable for their actions. 100% agree. If you cause an accident, because you were being actively dangerous (stupid speed, out of control, severely under the influence, cutting people off unecessarily) then there should be serious consequences, both on a resort and higher level. There is a difference between having an accident cause you lost control but were being sensible, or hit ice and slipped out etc. In exactly the same way between getting charged with Dangerous driving vs Neg. driving But, I think that this is a pipe dream because PB have made it abundantly clear that they take 0 responsibility for anything that happens on the slopes, both in this case and on every single chairlift that you ride. Its written in big bold letters. Ride at own risk.......
PB isnít responsible for what happens on the slopes or the lifts, in the same way Parks isnít responsible for what you do in a park. Or the Roads Corporation isnít responsible for what you do on a road. But they should be liable when they are at fault, like when a lift drops from the ground or when an instructor doing their business hits a skier to serious injury.

Jellybeans: So therefore you think it's okay for skiers to have no responsibility for their actions?

It's a pipe dream because there is no clear line between the two extremes of genuine accident despite taking reasonable precautions and recklessness. There are two many variables and subjectivity involved.

Legs Akimbo: In our society skiing or not skiing is an easy choice to make. It is purely recreational. Not so much motor transport.
So therefore you think it's okay for skiers to have no responsibility for their actions?
