Ski class 'failed' to keep boy safe

At the beginning of 2003, 9-year-old Mathew Armutlu started down a trail at a Laurentian ski hill when suddenly the novice lost control, sped into the woods and apparently smashed into a rock.
He awoke from a 13-day coma unable to see, walk, talk or read.

Wow thats some horrible story!

But how did he hit the boy if he was grooming a closed run?

the groomer was going from one closed area to another via an open trail I guess

at least they didn't blame the lesson or the instructor

Maybe you should be blamed too. I've commented on your apparent support of unsanctioned inverted arials in another thread and I am waiting to be locked out for my comments. You are irresponsible.
