Meh, I am just sick of getting people here and there bitching about resorts not allowing skinning, how it's public land, and their rights are being taken away. It's fucking retarded for the most part. So many other options that are safe without all the bullshit going on.
Our resort is in a provincial park and is public land. But it's clearly in our rules to not allow any sort of activity that isn't directly related to using the lifts to go up, and slide down on skis/board/tele...
We have a lease with the province to operate the resort and operate it within our definition of safety!
Interesting to read our rules on rope ducking/poaching though. The mountains that surround the resort are public land, so people are free to do what they want on that land. If somebody is caught using the lifts to access that land though, their lift tickets can be cut.
