Recent court rulings have effectively nullified Oregon liability waivers, impacting the accessibility and affordability of recreation and fitness for people across our state. Oregon businesses are now paying significantly more for liability insurance than other western states. As a result, recreation and fitness providers are forced to either increase consumer costs or eliminate recreation options altogether. This will have a devastating effect on small businesses, rural communities and recreationists throughout the state. Without waiver reform, Oregon risks losing the tremendous societal and economic benefits recreation and fitness provide.
Recreation and fitness are vital to the livelihood and physical health of Oregonians. Restoring the viability of liability waivers in Oregon is crucial to the accessibility and affordability of recreation and fitness for people across our great state. To level the playing field and preserve recreational opportunities, Oregon should align with the same balanced liability waiver standard that exists in every other western state.
From after-school sports teams to working out in health clubs or enjoying Oregon’s forests and rivers, it is essential we preserve access to recreation for all our community. Skyrocketing liability insurance only makes it harder for businesses to provide affordable recreation and fitness options. Without waiver reform, Oregon risks losing the tremendous societal and economic benefits recreation provides.
We urge you to support Oregon recreation and fitness community by passing liability waiver reform this session.

We’re super excited to see mountain snow in the forecast! Unfortunately, the timing of the snowfall has been very unsettled and moving around a bit. As we approach the weekend, temperatures are now predicted to rise throughout the day on Saturday with heavy rain forecasted for Sunday.
Given those circumstances, we have made the very tough decision to suspend operations for this weekend, December 2nd and 3rd with the primary focus on snow management and preservation. Our teams will be actively farming the snow as it’s falling throughout the storm in an effort to deepen our base prior to any rainfall we may experience.

We’ll provide an update for advanced tubing sales next Wednesday at noon.
