DENVER (CBS4) – A lawsuit involving the death of a skier at Winter Park Resort is headed to the Colorado Supreme Court.

An avalanche killed Chris Norris in an inbounds area of the resort in 2012. Norris’ wife is suing, accusing the resort of negligence.

The case was first dismissed by a Grand County judge who said the resort was immune from liability under the Ski Safety Act. The Court of Appeals upheld that ruling.

The state Supreme Court will hear the case next week.
