There is a lot of joking on this site about drinking and being juvenile. This is not one of those threads. I say when the skiing is done “Party On!” but not before.
It has always been my understanding that if a skier consumes alcohol and then gets hurt bad enough to need medical care, the lake owners / boat owners insurance is less likely to cover the claim. This leaves the lake owners / boat owners basically uninsured.
Does anyone understand the laws well enough to clarify the how the liability changes if the injured parting has alcohol in their system? Is this a misunderstanding on my part?
I bring this up because if my understanding is correct I think a lot of skiers would be more cautious when guests show up with a drink in hand.
