"I would think that more recklessness comes from people coming in and drinking at lunch time and then going back out"

...that's probably the first time I've ever completely agreed with a skier

Sounds like some cops just want free lift tickets, er wait, I mean volunteer work. And pot heads totally just smoke on Friday Saturday and Sundays.

Might be one hell of a nasty Scorpion to wipe out with a fully locked and loaded Glock on your hip. (or whatever sidearm the RCMP carry)

First, they are easy to see. Second, they are all big guys, bet they cant even catch me if they tried. And police on hills is just retarded. They are going to cancel it once someone injuries them self or someone steals a gun of a cop.... such a stupid idea.

Don't cops in Canada just carry batons since civilians aren't allowed to be armed?

And if you're worried about being able to smoke just go to WA or CO. Perfectly legal.

I kind of wondered if that isn't a safety issue? I've never thought about riding with a loaded gun. I don't really get why they are carrying guns in the first place. Are stoners more violent in Canada? Do they have gangs at resorts there?

I thought snow gangsters were just park rats who wear baggy stuff.
Who knew!

Pretty much all cops carry sidearms here. They're left at the station before/after duty though...

A loaded gun is totally safe. As long as you don't have a round in the chamber, you'd have to pull the slide forward and release it to load a round in the chamber, and then without the hammer being cocked it's usually a really tough pull for the first round (around 8 pounds or so). There's more danger of it poking a hole in their thigh than actually firing.

That said, I think kids/people have just taken things a little too far. Back when I still enjoyed the sweet leaf on a regular basis, we'd go to a remote part of the hill, duck into the trees, have a quick smoke (a SMALL one) and then head back out riding. Now guys are smoking all over the place. Unfortunately I think it's the idiots that ruin it for the rest of the smokers.

I know Nakiska and Lake Louise quite well, and it'd still be VERY easy to ride and smoke... Just gotta use your head!
