I think that booters and snowshoe-ers who chronically screw up skin tracks should first be given the opportunity to repent. If that doesn't work, they should be sent to Gitmo immediately where they will be subjected to humiliation beyond their wildest nightmares.

Just a thought...

Molly, Mary, whatever. I remember nipple. It was about the only place worth skiing inbounds at Targhee. Shame a place with so much snow is so flat....

Anyway, there is defintitely differences of when and not to boot pack a trail. I have climbed and skied from the summit of 6 of our 14'ers and every time I strapped my skis to my pack and snowshoed or crampon climbed to the summit. To do so I have snowshoe packed skin tracks before, but only in early season conditions, in places that are not regularly visited. Most of the time it is common courtesey to stay out of the skin track, but not always necessary. Just keep others in mind and try to have fun!

Skiing in the backcountry sucks anyway. Resort skiing is way better. Hesperus has been off the hook,seriously. But if you really have to ski backcountry, try skinning straight up everything, that'll eliminate 95% of dem dam gapers. You got to admit that it's kinda funny watching the rookies wallow in chest deep sugar snow, having been a rookie once. Yo Stinky, you finally done hanging out in Kansas and Texas? Give us a call, I need somebody to attach a bungee cord to. I hope you still got that big ole shovel. That thing is way more fun to ride than my fattie boards.

I asked him nicely to let me pass, and the piece of shit made some snide comment about my dogs being off leash and then about how the wilderness is open to everyone.

I left the track into the deep, but really had to huff it to get ahead of him. I didn't see him again, but didn't want to make an issue. You never know - he could have been packing heat or hurt my dogs.

Made me want to stab the wanker in the eye with my ski pole.

Snowshoeing in the skin track isn't such a big deal. The track just gets a little wider. I have to object to booting up the track though. Booting makes an irregular surface so less of one's skins are in contact with the snow. Plus booters are slow as hell if the snow is soft.
