That's the dumbest thing I've ever heard.

I'm a beginner rider. Don't really want to go on double lack trails. I don't feel like leafing it the whole way down. Want to stay safe and have fun.

I have sooo much fun riding on greens in powder. I just take it easy. It's so much more fun than groomed stuff. It's like your carving in the clouds.
Yes. Even out west here they groom every green and almost every blue run after snow. Why wouldn't you? Those runs are for people learning still and powder in general isn't conducive to learning and lead to people getting stock on gentle flats. If you want to ride powder, learn to ride blacks, trees, or hike.
