BENNETT v. HIDDEN VALLEY GOLF & SKI, INC., 02-1311
Under Missouri law, a voluntary skier assumes the risks inherent in or incidental to skiing, regardless of subjective knowledge of those risks. Instructions as to the duty of care a proprietor of a place of public amusement owes a customer were proper. Reference to plaintiff's illegal drug use was relevant to her injuries.
