In Maine and Other States, people enjoy the sport of snow skiing and snow boarding. Most injuries are suffered while attempting to maneuver the slopes. There are risks associated with snow boarding and snow skiing. Of course, the level of risks depends on the following: condition of the slope, steep or level of the slope, weather conditions, experience of the skier, presence and ski level of other skiers / snow boarders, and other factors. There are also risks with the travel to and from the slopes through the use of ski lifts. In Sugarloaf Mountain, Maine, a lift broke leaving some visitors injured and others trapped for a time period. It was reported that 9 visitors were injured and 200 were trapped.
