When Connecticut health insurance salesman Gregory D. Hanks took his sons snow tubing at the Powder Ridge ski area, he found the language in the required waiver forms -- which required him to "assume all risks associated with Snowtubing, even if due to the NEGLIGENCE of" Powder Ridge -- so "patently egregious," he was sure no court would ever enforce it. But Connecticut law is unsettled on the issue. That may change, due to state Supreme Court arguments in Hanks' case against the ski resort.
