Vermont Ski Resort Worker Says Accident Was his Fault

December 11, 2013

A snowboard instructor says he was at fault in a skiing accident at the Jay Peak ski resort in which a 5-year-old girl was seriously injured.

But William Vincent of Montgomery tells a federal court that he was employed by the resort at the time.

The Burlington Free Press reports Vincent submitted a statement in the lawsuit filed by the family of Juliana Kane of West Newbury, Mass. They said she was taking a ski lesson in April when Vincent came down a hill at a high rate of speed and collided with her.

Resort president Bill Stenger had said Vincent had been fired a week earlier for an unrelated incident. Vincent said in his sworn statement Monday he was employed and was using a Jay Peak ski pass.
