Ski lawyers* are cashing in on the financial woes at Tamarack Resort. Opening in 2004, Tamarack provided the first new ski mountain in the U.S. since the early 1980s. Tamarack also offered golf and a zipline, with tennis legends Andre Agassi and Stephie Graf promising luxury lodging.

 

Like a blog author who can’t think of a good simile, the resort shuttered its ski runs soon thereafter. Now in bankruptcy, Tamarack operates a limited ski season using the three ski lifts it owns. However, Bank of America owns two others; it desires to remove and sell them to other resorts. Of course, Tamarack residents oppose the removal as it decreases the resort’s attractiveness to potential suitors.

 

Textbook freerider problems and more prevent the residents from buying the lifts directly from Bank of America. This future ski lawyer* suggests a more creative solution: introducing endangered species into the ski lift supports to protect them as habitats under the Endangered Species Act.

 

Tamarack residents, contact your local bird lawyer for help in locating and placing animals, and I accept season passes as payment for my advice.**

 

* Practitioners of ski law shred the gnarliest pow at the world’s finest ski resorts, identifying and protecting their clients from potential tort lawsuits and other risks. Tamarack’s lack of ski lawyers likely led to its bankruptcy, so hire a ski lawyer today!

** Do not rely on this advice.
