VAIL, Colo. (AP) -- The parents of a 13-year-old boy killed in an avalanche last winter say they are suing the resort. The parents are suing Vail Resorts claiming the company's negligence created an avalanche trap that killed their son, Taft Conlin

According to the Vail Daily, Vail Resorts has asked the Broomfield County District Court to throw out the lawsuit, saying they complied with Colorado's Skier Safety Act.

The ski company says the death resulted from inherent dangers and risks of skiing, and they should be protected because they claim they did not violate Colorado law.
