I play it safe and never smoke on the mountain. Rather just go to the base and find something around there, or just my car.

Some of those Winter Park huts have been around since the '80's. Some guys I used to be friends with would load up snowmobiles on the 2nd or 3rd snow of the season and go stock up the Berthoud ones.

Rumor had it that Sancho (from the Sublime song) lived in one of those huts for a few years. Never met him but had some mutual friends.

I've seen a couple of shacks here and there. If anyone "important" is reading this, I've completely forgotten where any of them are. Awkward going by them with a gopro on your helmet though...

I can definitely see it being a safety/legal issue. Most places have some pretty heavy disclaimers (backup up by state law), but all it takes is for one slick lawyer to find a loophole somewhere in there and sue the resort.

Say what...? Every smoke shack I have been to was like wtf?... Why are we stopping here? This isnt a good spot. Then some fool im with crawls into a little hole that opens into a huge cave underneath a rock one of the workers dug last summer.

1. If I knew where that shack was, I'd stay there instead of renting a room. Damn
2. We have many of those huts on our mountain. Each is made of different materials and with different architecture.
3. In times of low tourist activity our local smokers don't bother to use these huts. They light up on the lift doesn't matter who is on there with them. I used to think they were being rude by not offering. However, they probably would have been breaking the law if they had offered.

ive heard of a couple up here, but ive never found them.

I do have some questions though:

Can any random just stop and use one of these shacks or do you have to be givin permission by the "in crowd" that frequents the shack?

Whats usually in the shack? is it just an empty hole in the side of the hill, or do people actually stock them with food/beer/chairs/whatever?

Basically im wondering the etiquette of the smoke shack, if there is any? Id love to find and use one, but not at the cost of an altercation by the builder or in crowd of the shack.

I would highly recommend NOT smoking in your car. I was at Waterville Valley yesterday and while me and my buddies were eating lunch, we saw this dude lurking in the parking lot. We knew he was up to something. He walked up to this Navigator with 2 dudes smoking in it and both ended up getting arrested. As we finished lunch we watched them getting driven away in the back of a cruiser.

Good point. A Basin had cops patrolling the parking lot and busting people having safety meetings in or by their car last year.
