Top Ski Lawyers provide commentary and reports on current ski safety issues and ski injury news

Thirty-five years ago, Jim Chalat published his first ski law article in The Colorado Lawyer. Our ski law practice is now nationally recognized. We have been lead counsel in plaintiffs’ ski cases in Colorado, California, New Mexico, Utah, Wyoming, Virginia and New York. Our cases and trials have involved skier and snowboarder collisions, ski area operators’ statutory negligence, lift accidents, avalanches, terrain-park, alpine slide, and tubing accidents, snow groomer and snowmobile accidents.
