Faulty park feature damages board, my liability?
So I've been following my local ski area for the last two weeks (AZ Snowbowl) on their opening date. They finally opened yesterday. I told my fam I'm sorry, but I have to get up for a half day in the morning and get my ride on. So I made my way up, got my ticket, and got to it, as I was leaving by noon. Well my third run I decide to hit the park. I was making my way down the park, hitting features etc. I'm on a 2011 Never Summer SL...
I go to hit the final box in the park, go up to board slide, and halfway down I literally clip something on the box. I immediately fell straight on my face, rolled over, got up and slowly started to continue down the hill, as I get up and start moving, I look back and see one of the park "maintenance" guys look down at the box, as if he knows I clipped something on it. About 30 yards down I stop, assuming the worst for my board, take it off, and a screw that came up out of the box had ripped open the edge of my board, tearing the metal edge in half, part of the base, and a nice gash in the center.
I went to talk to the park guy, gave him a piece of my mind, he didn't really care though. So I go to guest services, state my situation, and after about 30 minutes of talking, all they did at that point was take my board to fix at their cost, and give me another ticket (which at least they could do since I had three runs before my day was over)
My question to you guys is, should I settle for a "fixed" job from them and a voucher ticket? Do you think I'm in the right to say if my board can't look and be fixed to where it was before this happened, that I'm entitled to at least a season pass (costs 300 bucks in early season) or a new board? I think I am, but I want some outside perspective. Thank you,
