    Lost Ski

    I was skiing at Snow Basin ski resort in Utah and one of my skis fell out of the gondola car and neither me nor the ski patrol were able to find it. A gondola is a 8 person enclosed car that your ride in to the top of the mountain. It is not like a traditional ski lift where you keep your skis on your feet, to ride the gondola you must take your skis off and give them to a Snow Basin employee who then loads your skis into a rack on the outside of the gondola car. Since we were unable to find my ski Snow Basin gave me a pair of rental skis, which were equivalent in value to the pair I lost, to ski on until the ski was found. I was then told if my ski wasn't found I could keep the rental skis. However, I had no choice in the rental skis I was given and they do not have the same performance as the skis I lost. I was wondering if Snow basin is legally obligated to replace my ski since they were the ones who loaded it into the gondola? Or if they were giving me the rental skis as courtesy?

    You may be entitled to compensation or skis of an equivalent value from the ski resort if their negligence caused you the ski to fall. You can try suing in small claims court but first you should ask them if they are willing to compensate you for your lost skis or provide skis of equal value.
