Additional Notes

Complaint: Visit to Mad River Mountain. The rules are only one going down the hill at a time. My nephew went down and he's 6 and another person was allowed to go down because the girl was not paying attention, she was talking and laughing.. she let two people go down the hill and hit my son. Half way down the hill my son flipped off his tube and was stuck on the hill.. She didn't see him flip off his tube, and allowed 2 others to go down the hill which is not allowed b/c the lane was still occupied. After the others crashed into my son, nobody was sent to help or check to see if everyone was OK. We have this on video and a video of the girl that allowed it to happen. I contacted Mad River and they didn't really care too much or offer anything or an apology. What can we do about this? I have a video I can send if needed.

Desired Settlement: Refund and or tickets for the group to go and try to enjoy themselves this time around. After my nephew was hit, he wouldn't ride anything and wanted to go home. Ruined the whole trip b/c one person didn't do their job and wasn't paying attention which resulted in 3 people getting hurt.

Business Response: Mad River Mountain and the Avalanche Tubing Park were hosts to the complainant and her party on the MLK holiday weekend. After their visit, the guest made our management aware of the situation she encountered via email with a date stamp of 1:22am on 1/20. Mad River absolutely takes notice of guest issues and management responded directly with an email less than six hours later at 6:42am on 1/20 which included an apology for any issues her group encountered. In order to properly look into the complaint and situation, we requested additional information through several email exchanges with the guest and escalated the issue to our General Manager for his involvement. After speaking with the manager on duty during the guest's outing, it was determined that the guest had confirmed with the manager that evening that she and the members of her party were ok after the incident and did not require further review from resort Ski Patrol staff. Additionally the manager on duty followed up with a verbal reprimand of the employee in question that may have incorrectly managed the traffic in the tubing chute. After this confirmation we emailed the guest back to ensure her that the parties involved had been spoken to, which was the request presented by the guest. During the conversation with the manager on duty on the date of the incident, the guest did not request any voucher or refund compensation or visit our Guest Services Office to inquire about such. Additionally no mention of a compensation request was given during any of the email exchanges so Mad River had every reason to believe that the situation had been resolved. Through conversations it was concluded that the members of the party whose ticket usage was affected included the guest herself and her son, while other members of the party had been able to continue. Mad River would be happy to issue Snow Guarantee Vouchers for a return tubing visit through the end of the season for the two tickets that were not fully used. To make arrangements for these vouchers to be received, the guest may contact the Director of Sales and Service at Mad River Mountain to confirm the address she would like them mailed to. Sincerely, Mad River Mountain Guest Services
