In all fairness, I go in that area every time I'm able too.
2 weeks ago, after riding a little ways out there. I turned to hike back in, which should have been 10 min max. It was such a white out blizzard though, I hiked from one out of bounds area, right across the run I was looking for, into a different out of bounds area.

My binding exploded whilst I was using my board to climb, going up a really steep section. That added some time. My 10min hike took 45min, that had me a bit confused.

Finally I seen an orange snow fence, holy shit though, I was so tired I just flopped over it. Wouldn't ya know it, 2 ski patrol sweepin' up Skychair.
They were cool, luckily.

So the red line was my route.
After going out of bounds skiers right, I was just trying to get to the yellow line & then follow it down.

Right now though, or @ least 2 weeks ago. That area doesn't look anything like the map.
The wide open runs, aren't wide open, cause all the little trees, logs, cliffs & waterfalls haven't been buried yet.

I have a little video of the fog rollin' in, I have to upload it yet.
It's pretty trippy.

I apologize for my ignorance, but why was it an issue when he posted the map? I'm fairly new here and don't want to make mistakes, so I wanted to understand why this was a big deal.

What are you talking about?

That doesn't make any sense, any info @ all regarding the out of bounds area @ Cypress, is good info.

It's not like I'm telling people to go for it. People will continue to go there, no matter what I say or write.

They should @ least be aware of what they're in for.

That guys excuse about how he got lost because he was distracted by the loss of a friend is the weakest story ever... If you're that sad why are you snowboarding. I guess we should just expect crazy stories and excuses from the director of finance at the National Bank of Canada, he probably doesn't know the difference between reality and fiction anymore anyways... I like the part about the ziplock urine bag... That might come in handy.
