This is why I don't really care for uphill skinning at a resort. During hours you are going against the grain, down hill travelers are going fast and not always in very good control.

Then you have other operations as listed above, snow cat grooming, etc. If I was the ski area operator, I'd shut it down now.

If you need to get a "safe" skin in, there are plenty of options outside of the resort boundaries. If you can't figure out where those are, then you probably shouldn't have backcountry gear anyway.
