Pennsylvania Supreme Court To Review Duties Owed By Ski Resorts


The Supreme Court of Pennsylvania has granted allocatur in the case of Bourgeois v. Snow Time, Inc., No. 768 MAL 2018 (Pa. June 25, 2019) involving a snow tubing accident at the Roundtop Resort in York, PA. 

The court accepted all four issues presented for review, which included issues addressing (1) a trial court’s obligation to consider expert reports when ruling on an MSJ, (2) the sufficiency of expert reports, (3) the duties owed by a snow tubing facility (previously established in Tayar v. Camelback), (4) and whether evidence of industry standards is required to sustain a cause of action in recklessness/gross negligence.

I send thanks to Attorney Paul Oven of the Moosic, PA office of Dougherty, Leventhal & Price for bringing this Order to my attention.
