killclimbz 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.

Sunshine my local hill does bag searches on closing day in an effort to control some of the madness that goes on during slush cup. Doesnt seem to work as everyone hides their booze up there a few days before hand!
Plus, could you imagine the lift line delay if they searched everybody? It'd be worse than TSA at O'Hare during Christmas.

I think we can chalk this one up to urban legend and misinformation.

RawStylus909 They are searching for flasks??? What about if I pour vodka in a plastic water bottle and pretend it's water? What about ppl that use camelbacks as well? What a waste of time & fucking LAME-O.

john doe The bomb threats are a little far. Just use stickers that say "I'm the bomb!!!". That should be enough to get the idiots charged up.

Funny, yes, until the FBI shows up on your ass...

EagleTalons With all the stuff I usually carry in my coat and now that I have a backpack. It would take half an hour to look at all the stuff I am carrying!
