A man paralyzed while snowboarding at Boyne Mountain Ski Resort has failed to persuade the state appeals court to reinstate his lawsuit.
Patrick N. Anderson says a certain jump was not obvious before he was badly injured in Boyne's terrain park. His expert says the jump should have been constructed in a safer way.
But the appeals court pointed to a state law and ruled in favor of Boyne. The law grants immunity to ski area operators and says skiers and snowboarders know there are dangers when they hit the slopes.
The court says Anderson would have seen the jump if he heeded all signs and warnings.
