A Pennsylvania resort may be liable for a collision between a skier and the woman who stood on the snow watching her family take ski lessons, a federal judge ruled this week. Shawnee Mountain Ski Area had moved for summary judgment in a case filed by a spectator who was wiped out by a skier while watching her family take ski lessons. The judge held that the spectator was not a skier so the ski safety act did not apply, that assumption of risk defense was not supported by the evidence and that the “fan at the baseball game hit by a foul ball” is not analogous to the spectator/skier collision. The case is now heading to trial. To read more, see Spectator on Slopes Not Same as Baseball Fan.
