Snow Tubers Not Skiers

A snow tuber who had brought a negligence action against a ski area operator was not time-barred under the then-governing statute of limitations, held the Vermont Supreme Court. The alleged injuries had occurred on a run used exclusively for snow tubing activities. The court held that the prior statute of limitations (which also contained immunity provisions and notice requirements, as well as a two year statute of limitations) for actions brought by "skiers" did not apply to snow tubers. The Vermont legislature has now amended the provision to include snow tubing, snow boarding and snow shoeing. (Mike Frisch)
