"In an exclusive interview with CBC News Wednesday, Boucher said he was on his way to the ski area when he learned that a good friend had died. He said he went ahead onto the slopes but was terribly distracted, missed a turn and became lost."

That's what he came up with? Hahaha. Darn fucking snowboarders breakin' all the rules like they own the mountain.

+1, I've said it once and I'll say it again. I have the boarding ability to handle OOB terrain, but I don't have the right to be there until I get the proper training, gear and experience.

Besides, there is more advanced, steeper inbounds terrain usually available at least that I've seen in East BC/AB. Stuff that's had avalanche control done to it...

and what happens when idiot lawmakers cave to the public idiots and make all forms of backcountry recreation illegal? there's already a ton of people who think going under a rope is against the law

The way different resorts deal with terrain closure is interesting to me. Seems some places close off fairly safe terrain for no apparent reason... and probably bait some people into rope ducking. Luckily where I ride mostly it's kinda loose and there has to be open creeks, exposed and pretty dangerous terrain for them to rope it off. Seems out here in the PNW, you can find enough trouble in-bounds for the most part

Now I think about it, you could probably put most of this down to powder fever? Uninformed people heading out of bounds for fresh tracks. I rate Hemlock so highly because you can get pow turns all day in bounds... and even then we learned how dangerous deep snow can be the other day. /Rant

Yeah Fernie's limits are basically the mountain ridges that separate the resort from the backcountry. It must be people looking for more hidden powder stashes, maybe they should put more effort into finding the in bounds stashes!?!

Things close to Vancouver get tracked so fast, so I can see the attraction to ducking ropes. Pow is so hyped, all this backcountry talk, more splitboards etc on the market. You def get the overall feeling of missing out if you aren't doin it. Not tryna start anything, just putting some ideas out there. I can see why people think, lets go out of bounds... even if it's a bad idea in reality

In Vancouver, POW is more in demand than crack on Hastings and Main.
