A lawsuit filed in a California court by a family against a Lake Tahoe ski resort and other companies over the death of a man who fell from a chairlift has been settled. The amount of the settlement is confidential. The family of 51-year-old Mark Dickson settled the wrongful death suit, which was pending in El Dorado Superior Court, after a settlement conference. As part of the settlement, in addition to the monetary payment, the owners of Heavenly Mountain Resort agreed to make various safety improvements, including regular equipment inspections and shutting down the ZipRider line in high winds. Dickson was killed in August 2009 after falling from Heavenly’s chairlift, which became entangled with a rope retrieval line from the zip line ride.
