A.S. was skiing on Sandy Park, an intermediate ski trail at Snowmass Resort at 2:20 PM on Thursday, March 1, 2018.
Cohen was uphill of A.S., flew over a roll and took A.S. out. In the Collision Report Form, ski patrol quoted A.S. at the
scene immediately after the collision saying “I got hit in the back.”
A.S. sustained multiple right-sided rib fractures, thoracic bleeding and collapsed lung (hemopneumothorax), a right
clavicular displaced fracture, and associated pulmonary injury. He spent four days in Aspen Valley Hospital, all in ICU.
Aspen Valley Hospital could not manage the hemopneumothorax and emergently transferred him to St. Anthony
Hospital in Lakewood, CO. He would spend an additional twenty-one days there.
A lawsuit was filed by Chalat Hatten & Banker, but the claims were settled before trial for $675,000.
Partner Russell Hatten was the lead attorney on the case.
