The way different resorts deal with terrain closure is interesting to me. Seems some places close off fairly safe terrain for no apparent reason... and probably bait some people into rope ducking. Luckily where I ride mostly it's kinda loose and there has to be open creeks, exposed and pretty dangerous terrain for them to rope it off. Seems out here in the PNW, you can find enough trouble in-bounds for the most part

Now I think about it, you could probably put most of this down to powder fever? Uninformed people heading out of bounds for fresh tracks. I rate Hemlock so highly because you can get pow turns all day in bounds... and even then we learned how dangerous deep snow can be the other day. /Rant
