I couldn't tell. Still probably employees if they have snowmobiles. The resort will let hikers go up as it's on US Forest Service land but might not like the snowmobiles. Not sure on their policy.

Employee days are becoming rarer and rarer and much more tame. Too many insurance concerns. I participated in the last lift served one at Loveland. It was great having the place to ourselves. They generally cut off the lift when "sodas" started going up it. It was then time to head over to the general food and feasting at the lodge. They put out all the cooked leftover foodstocks and beverages. It was generally followed by snow golf. Snow golf Rule #1 - don't use a white golf ball.

Most likely. I just don't have the patience to watch. There is tons of fencing to pull. Equipment to pull up and store away. They have the terrain park to disassemble. I see they brought a snowcat out for something. They could be bringing stuff down with it. They then have to start servicing and inspecting the lifts sometime.

Traditionally the day after Closing Day for the general public is Employee Day at resorts. They could be working, playing, or a combination of both.
