Raggedmountain will claim she went snow-tubing down a snow tube that isspecially designed for snow-tubers without an instructor. The risksinvolved in the snow-tubing could not prevent Alaina from being givenjustice. There should be rules and regulations set to govern thesport. Assumptions that the risks involved could have bared Alainafrom skiing are wrong. Alaina’s suit will not be successful. Thecourt’s order would have clearly pointed out that the law appliedto skiing only. It will be contrary to Alaina’s case as she wentsnow-tubing and not skiing. The damages could be reduced by theragged mountain ski resort based on theories that Alaina got injuredin their area of jurisdiction. It can be questionable as to where theemployees of the resort were during the time when Alaina wassnow-tubing. They could have stopped her from participating in thesport or given her some instructions (Harris,2011).

The defendant owes theclaimant compensation for the injuries and the repair of the car.Sasha is also responsible for the crash. She saw that Joe was drunkbut still served him another drink. Joe can sue her for serving adrunken person more alcohol. The other driver is not liable for anycompensation from Sasha. He did not witness Sasha serving Joe thedrink (Harris,2011).
