This is retarded. Good luck finding my joints when I have all my gear on. That seems near impossible. With all ur gear and the amount of stash pockets some outerwear comes with, it seems retarded. Flask's would seem pretty damn easy to hide aswell with all ur gear on.

I would seriously doubt they'd pay cops to do that. They'd have better control putting in cameras. A camera or 2 in each gondola would do more to stop people from swigging or toking on the lift.

Not knowing how steam boat is set up. If you need to take the gondola to get up to the mountain, hide a flask in ur boots for the time being. In front of ur shin, loose laces, ur golden.

They'd rather u buy ur alcohol off of them.

That seems to be the bottom line.

I don't know about you guys, but I have never gotten drunk, much less a buzz off of a flask I've brought to the resort. Hell I bet their resort owned ski shops at the base sell flasks...

Yea, how fucking bird is that eh. Around here they get concerts, sporting events and all that noise. To sit there, get paid good cash and stop a few fights. Usually by just kicking people out. I couldnt complain. The one cop I know say's he gets about an extra 8 bills bi weekly for his "off duty" pays. Thats golden.

I've got no interest in getting hammered on or off the slope. 1 beer with lunch occasionally.

Cifex, I am not sure how it works around you. Do you have cops at sporting events, concerts, the fair around there? If so, and according to your research than the tax payer is footing the bill for them to be there.

The way it's structured here is that if there is some sort of private (football game, club, concert) event and a police presence is needed, the owner of the event must hire them for their time to work said event. That way tax payers are not footing the bill for a private event. Sure there are exceptions and there are rules that have to be followed. The bottom line is that they are still police officers and can arrest you if it's justified (or not justified I suppose).

I think an important difference is that at sporting events you have 20-60 thousand people crammed into a small area with alcohol involved and opposing sides. Also, frequently the stadiums are subsidized by public monies because they have a significant economic benefit to the area and its in the public interest to protect the investment as well as the taxpayer. There is no history of riots at ski resorts and the human density doesn't warrant protection from terrorism. The prime risk at a ski resort is personal injuries involving one or two people. That would be resolved through civil litigation between the parties. I haven't heard any statistics on drunkards killing or maiming fellow skiers with their recklessness being endemic at resorts.

As far as police at bars (in uniform), the main issue in my opinion is the potential conflict of interest. Also, the impression that is given having uniformed civil servants 'employed' at a private facility could make it a appear an company is 'above the law'.

The Town of Breckenridge PD actually goes up on the mountain and patrols. They can only go the first 500 feet though after that their out of their jurisdiction. They've been issuing reckless endangerment tickets on people that are "speeding" in one case they actually came in the park and tried to ticket a guy that was hitting a feature. It's getting out of hand and of course Steamboat is going to try and swing some bullshit on it. But the truth is these resorts are all "what about the children" yeah well you know what those of us you're busting we're someones children too you fucks. Keystone is a prime example of that anyone that knows about their douche bag ski patrol and how they cover shit up knows what I'm talking about.
