A representative of the actress and her Goop website told Fox News on Tuesday: "This demand is completely without merit and we look forward to being vindicated."
Deer Valley Resort spokeswoman Emily Summers told the Associated Press that the resort can not comment on pending legal issues. The complex is also being sued.
Sanderson said at a press conference in Salt Lake City at his lawyer's office that he took almost three years to file a lawsuit because he crawl his feet, he encountered problems with previous lawyers and it was about the inability to work correctly due to concussion.
He said he has been in contact with a lawyer representing Paltrow, but he has never received any compensation or an apology. They have even suggested that it could be sued, Sanderson said.

Sanderson's demand seeks $ 3.1 million in damages, but denies that he asks Paltrow to be a famous and famous celebrity. He called him an unpleasant gesture not to stand or never apologize for what happened.
"I would like to be vindicated," said Sanderson, now 72. "I would like you to explain my truth."
Sanderson's attorneys said Paltrow's lawyers did not deny that he was involved in an accident, but argued that he was guilty, said lawyer Robert Sykes, representing Sanderson.
The events are based on the memory of a known man who was skiing with Sanderson on the day of the shock, Sykes said. Sanderson said he does not remember anything beyond being struck in the back and losing control of his body while on the back with somebody.
The witness, Craig Ramon, said a ski instructor from Deer Valley faced Sanderson when it was thrown into the snow, facing down. He told Ramon that Sanderson had hired Gwyneth Paltrow.
