Thredbo’s slopes are once again pure as the driven snow, with the pall of blood and intrigue hanging over this year’s Lanier Lawski race having been blown away by a stunning confession.

In its most recent edition, Lawyers Weekly unveiled a scandal over the Best Fall prize, originally awarded to Minters partner Ian James. Investigations revealed that despite not being within a yeti’s roar of the ski fields on the weekend of 16-17 August, James’ spirit lived on in the form of a rogue competitor competing under his name.

However, any ambitions of anonymity harboured by the snow phantom were shattered after a fall so spectacular that it resulted in an unconscious visit to the surgery with ski patrol.

Ahem … well … Folklaw is now pleased to scoop its better-fancied print rival by revealing the shadowy skier’s true identity: Andrew Gray, from Aon.

A frantic search by organisers, embarrassed by the effects of public controversy on the prestigious award’s integrity, solicited a confession from black-and-blue Gray.

And we are pleased to report that all is black-and-white as far as legal action is concerned, with Gray confirming that it was his name — and not that of James — that appeared on the waiver of liability form.

In any event, if the matter did go any further it is unlikely that Gray’s testimony could have been relied on. The fall that knocked him senseless has also rendered his memory of the weekend absent without leave. That may explain why he has fearlessly vowed to return next year “to defend my title”.
