Posted By: The Ski Channel on January 15, 2014 3:47 pm

Wasatch Equality, a Utah nonprofit corporation, and four individual snowboarders filed a lawsuit in the United States District Court for the District of Utah against Alta Ski Area and the United States Forest Service, seeking to permanently enjoin Alta from enforcing its anti-snowboarder policy and snowboarding ban. The plaintiffs also seek a declaration from the Court that Alta’s snowboarding prohibition, as enforced by the Forest Service, violates the Fourteenth Amendment to the United States Constitution and is therefore unlawful. A copy of the Complaint can be found on Wasatch Equality’s website http://wasatchequality.org/lawsuit.

Wasatch Equality and the four snowboarders are also declaring that Alta’s snowboarding prohibition, as enforced by the Forest Service, violates their Fourteenth Amendment to the United States Constitution and is unlawful.
