The 5280 article is not bullshit. Several Steamboat locals on other sites have been talking about this and confirming the report. It is also not an everyday thing.
Here is 5280's response to the editorial from the Denver Post.
Pretty much confirms my suspicions as to how Steamboat was trying to handle this. They obviously tried to paint it as a good thing in the original 5280 article. Now that it could cost them they are back pedaling on it.
Sounds like Spring is the most targeted time for this policy, then some select Holidays and an occasional pow day. Just keep that in mind when you are thinking about booking a trip to Steamboat. Plenty of other resorts where you won't have this hassle at all no matter what time of year it is.

|Toecutter||I asked my friend, who lives in Steamboat Springs, and she said the article is "so not true." They did bag searches on April 1st and closing day.|
