If someone ducks a rope they should at least know the area before they do it. I think not getting lost is a commonsense thing. If you know where you are at all times u wont get lost.

Now I think about it, you could probably put most of this down to powder fever? Uninformed people heading out of bounds for fresh tracks. I rate Hemlock so highly because you can get pow turns all day in bounds... and even then we learned how dangerous deep snow can be the other day. /Rant

grafta The way different resorts deal with terrain closure is interesting to me. Seems some places close off fairly safe terrain for no apparent reason... and probably bait some people into rope ducking. Luckily where I ride mostly it's kinda loose and there has to be open creeks, exposed and pretty dangerous terrain for them to rope it off.

and what happens when idiot lawmakers cave to the public idiots and make all forms of backcountry recreation illegal? there's already a ton of people who think going under a rope is against the law

+1, I've said it once and I'll say it again. I have the boarding ability to handle OOB terrain, but I don't have the right to be there until I get the proper training, gear and experience.

Besides, there is more advanced, steeper inbounds terrain usually available at least that I've seen in East BC/AB. Stuff that's had avalanche control done to it...
