I think this is the most important point. You essentially never went out of bounds. If the resort wants to declare an area out of bounds, they have to actually rope it off. A lawyer could have a field day with this. Me, I would have just said to the goons "then you should rope it off up the hill".

Coffee is your friend. Everyone else is an acquaintance.
