According to The Times Argus, a 61 year old man Massechusetts man named John Verre has sued the Stowe Mountain Lodge over a fall down the stairs. 

The suit blames construction of the stairs in that the 4 grooves on each step were supposed to be filled and these were not.  One would certainly hope that Mr. Verre tried to give Stowe the chance to settle this situation before suing them.  The last thing in the world ski resorts need is higher liability premiums.

Higher premiums means less money to market, less ski jobs, higher skiing prices.
