From extinguishing campfires to hauling out trash, Front Country Rangers are a big help for US Forest Service

Could a Chairlift Accident in Colorado Set Snowbowl on its Toes?
In the 2021-22 ski season, an accident that will sound all-too familiar to Missoulians occurred at Crested Butte Ski Resort in Vail, Colorado. Annie Miller, 16, and her dad were just boarding the Paradise Express lift when Miller slipped from the chair. After hanging on for her life as the chairlift continued to climb, the teen fell over thirty feet. Miller received a number of injuries, including major damage to her spine which caused her to become paralyzed from the waist down. This very unfortunate accident is being addressed in a case hitting Colorado’s highest court next week. The outcome of this case could change the entire ski resort system in one of the nations major skiing states, potentially changing how waivers work and if kids can even use chairlifts. Needless to say people (both Vail and the public) are, rightfully so, making a pretty big deal out of it.
