Yep. This is especially infuriating to me, as someone who is fortunate enough to be able to get out on the weekdays, when everyone else I encountered from a minimum of 6’ away also prioritized a reasonably safe workout with abundant fresh air over (apparently) sticking it to The Man’s party-pooping ways...but now we’re getting punished too.arianna2 wrote: ↑Wed Mar 25, 2020 7:50 amcottonmountaineering wrote: ↑Tue Mar 24, 2020 9:26 pmhttps://www.summitdaily.com/news/lovela ... land-pass/arianna2 wrote: ↑Tue Mar 24, 2020 7:42 pmAnybody know why they are closing uphill access in ski areas. Some of these areas or at least part of them are not avy terrain. I don't buy the avoiding areas where you can get hurt and tax the system. You can't close public lands where people could do anything like 4 wheeling, biking, and yes even just walking (which could lead to injury) and I think this just displaces more people into more dangerous territory.
Seriously people.....dumbs**Ts. Ruin it for the rest of us who just want to get in the car, drive to a reasonably safe area, and hike up a mountain. I have no interest in tailgating.
At least I’m also fortunate enough to have alternate options nearby. And Monarch is sorta day-trip-able from where I am, though it’s definitely a full day, and not one I’d want to make with iffy roads, etc.
