Do you really need a beacon for the Dive (do they check you)? kinda sux that the best area on the hill is roped off.... Saying that I'll probably be buying one next year for going back country.
I went up there last season with a beacon, and then they checked my bag to see if i had a shovel. I thought i did but i didnt. Came back the next day with all the gear and there was no one there to check.
