Didn't sign up for the full read....... Having some trouble getting my head around just what the controversy might be?
Oh my head hurts today.
Yeah, migraine city here too. So these people skinned up the resort legally (it seems), were turned around because of the avalanche mitigation work and for whatever reason chose the wrong route to get down? That's what happened?
Not the smartest move, sure, but if they were up there in the legally allowed time frame why was avalanche mitigation going on at the same time? If they skinned up outside the allotted hours then they were trespassing and uphill rule is fine as is so why is it being questioned?
Clearly, I'm not getting the logic here.
