Riding off the trail.

How many of you go off the trail when riding even though its marked off limits?

Today I went on a small stretch under the ski lifts and got yelled at but just kept riding. Ill never do that again because the operator seemed really steamed and I dont want to lose the ability to ride there.

I always try to make sure to have a buddy with me since most unmarked of areas have "varying terrain" hidden under the snow, and rarely are they patrolled once you are into that terrain. Just realize being caught in that terrain regardless of area "size" usually means loss of riding privileages at that mountain. Typically its not worth the risk. That's what backcountry is for.

Learn about it because it is more than just snow conditions and big avalanches. A lot of people die and get seriously injured in roped off areas because they don't know about downfall, tree wells and such. In fact we have had deaths in Colorado just this year because of people riding out of bounds or in closed areas. And they were experienced riders.
