Existing law recognizes that most forms of physical recreation involve some inherent risk, but when accidents occur it is not always easy to determine whether it is within the domain of risk implicitly assumed by those engaging in a sport. This project examines the liability of operators of commercial recreational activities for personal injury or death, with specific emphasis on skiing.
