Slyder - Skinning is using skins on either the bottom of your skis or splitboard to travel uphilll to prevent you from sliding back.

OP - This is dumb and should be a nonissue. Stay alive. I know your guys pack should pretty much be facets on the ground. Don't die and ride within the boundaries if you don't know whats up.

...and as it relates to what the patrol said about riding where these guys were, I presume "deadfall's" refers to submarining the nose of your snowboard under a fallen log while the rest of you goes "Over?" Essentially,.. cutting you off at the knees??

so now I am confused is this like cross country skiing to get up the hill. I must add never goggled to see what split boarding is about I know it's your snowboard cut in half that is about it, not to get off topic.
Similar to using snow shoes but this would eliminate more gear is my guess.

yes which is why I said I felt it was impossible are at least highly unprobable.... I've been riding for 15 years lol... come on. Of course there are going to be the posters that believe "YERRRR GONNNA DIE!" for riding 5' the other side of a rope but whatever. I'm an adult and if that's the choice I want to make I will be paying the consequence. I would gladly sign a waiver stating don't come and find me if I submarine myself under a dead tree and am not able to self rescue if it meant I could duck ropes without consequence. I have a little avalanche training, but not enough yet... it's coming though. I don't ride the back country. In the past when I have ducked ropes I'd say I'm always within 20' of it (including this occassion.)

I ducked the ropes a few times, but they were right under the chairlift. Lol.

Ski patrol laughed and said ride at your own risk.

Whistler.

But I could see all the pow, it was beautiful. I think it was off limits due to poor coverage.. But if you weren't a dumbass you could see the uncovered rocks, etc.
