destroy Even crazier yet - Stevens has an Abrams tank from the first desert storm that they use to do blasting as well. Launch some mortars, ma'fuckas!

killclimbz I am pretty sure they will classify that as a D4. Looked like that would take anything out in it's path.

Yeah, there's one out of bounds run that leads back into the resort, so if they said they didn't have a ticket, we'd probably escort them back out of bounds?!?

Banjo At Whitefish last week, I noticed ALOT of people skinning up...granted they have signs indicating where "uphill traffic" should go. That said, I have never saw that many people skinning up a hill before. Maybe they have shot themselves in the foot by making the mountain so skin friendly.

anyhow, those people are stupid....if patrol says "hey we are doing avy control and blowing charges over there" what possible reason do you have for ignoring them....

mhaas I used skinned up brighton quite a bit this early season to access public land outside the lease area as it is the highest point to start at in big cottonwood canyon and things weren't quite filled in yet at lower elevations. But I made sure to get off the slopes by them time the lifts started spinning since I didn't want to be looked at. I also wasn't trying to ride anything that was controlled. Sounds like those guys were trying to poach the resorts pow.

There are gangs of rando guys who skin uphill all day at brighton. Word on the street is that they don't even like the down. Just doin it for exercise. Weirdos.
