Drunken skiers or boarders in Utah can be thrown out of a ski resort, but they won't go to jail.
A Utah lawmaker is dropping a bill that would have made skiing under the influence a crime in that state. The state representative said Utah resorts have addressed his concerns about ensuring visibly drunk skiers and open containers aren't allowed on lifts. It's already a crime in Utah if a drunken skier injures someone.
In Colorado, the law is tougher - the Ski Act makes it a Class 2 petty offense to ski while drunk according to www.skisafety.com
