Revelstoke Mountain Resort is being sued after a skier was injured at the ski hill in December 2013.

A skier and the Province of Alberta are suing Revelstoke Mountain Resort after the skier was injured at the resort in December 2013.

Dylan Alastair Ross and the province are suing the resort after Ross was injured on Dec. 29, 2013.

The Statement of Claim filed in BC Supreme Court on Dec. 23, 2015, says he was skiing down the lower part of the mountain when he went over a blind roll and crashed suddenly into a drainage ditch.

The crash resulted in multiple fractures to Ross’ left leg and other injuries. The claim says he suffers from permanent, partial disability; impairment of capacity, sever pain and suffering, loss of enjoyment of life, and more.

The lawsuit claims the resort failed to properly maintain the run and warn of the hazard posed by the ditch. It says the resort should have known the hazard could lead to injury and should have closed the run.

Ross is seeking compensation for the cost of past and future care, and the loss of past and future care, as well as general damages and special damages. No dollar figure is attached to the claim.

The Province of Alberta is suing to recoup the medical costs it incurred to care for Ross.

RMR has 21 days from the filing of the Statement of Claim to file its defense. The resort said it couldn’t comment on the case as it’s before the court.
