When it comes to enjoying winter sports in Utah, the thrill of skiing, snowboarding, snowshoeing, and snowmobiling attracts enthusiasts from far and wide.

- Malfunctioning ski lifts, posing significant danger to riders due to mechanical failures or lack of maintenance.
- Improperly marked hazardous back-country ski areas, where inadequate signage or boundary demarcation can lead to unsuspecting skiers venturing into dangerous terrain.
- Poorly maintained slopes, with uneven surfaces, hidden obstacles, or insufficient grooming, increasing the risk of accidents.
- Careless behavior exhibited by other skiers or snowboarders, such as reckless speeding or unpredictable maneuvers.
- Inadequate rescue training and procedures, delaying or complicating emergency response efforts following an accident.
- Defective ski equipment, including bindings, boots, or helmets, which can fail to provide adequate protection in the event of a fall or collision.
