This is America- guns, hot dogs, hamburgers, football on Sundays and liability waivers.

Every corporation big and small lives in constant fear of being sued, and I don’t blame them. The American civil judicial system can be a goldmine for a a devious person looking to cash out on a minor inconvenience.

The picture below is a screenshot from the Instagram page of Afton Alps, a Minnesota ski resort owned and operated by Vail Resorts.

The resort is encouraging guests to stop by this fall to sit in one of their snowcats, but not before they sign a liability waiver.

You might think it’s completely unnecessary for Vail Resorts to require guests to sign a liability waiver for simply sitting in a stationary snowcat, but again, I don’t blame them.

All it takes is for one bozo to slip while they’re walking up those stairs, to bump their head as they’re climbing into the cabin, or to knock their crotch on the steering wheel and Vail Resorts suddenly has a multi-million-dollar lawsuit on their hands.

Say what you want about Vail Resorts, but they know how to run a business in the modern judicial climate.

Just don’t expect to be guaranteed a parking spot at Stowe, VT on a weekend even after you shell out $450 for a season parking pass. That’s where the corp draws the line.
