Got a call from the Ski Patrol over the weekend. They wanted to ask skiers and snowboarders to PLEASE not ski out of bounds.
With all the heavy snow we’ve been experiencing, it’s dangerous to ski off trail because of the avalanche danger. The ski patroller said they had 10 skiers reported out of bounds the day they were searching for the avalanche victims.
The situation is also dangerous for the ski patrol, who have to go out and search for any missing skiers. We’ll be talking to the avalanche experts later this week.
So stay safe and stay in bounds.
