mhelm, I think you are thinking of Aspen, where the beer flows like wine.

I, also, don't want to ride around with a bunch of wasted people- in fact, I don't want to ride with a bunch of people at all- wasted or uptight. That's the biggest reason I prefer not to set foot in any ski area, and choose instead to ski in the BC- too many people.

I realize that the Sheriff being out at Steamboat is not an illegal search, per se, since it's treated as private property. However, Steamboat would do better to police their guests themselves. It wouldn't come across to many of us as nearly as authoritarian as inviting the sheriff up to turn pockets out, as the original article suggests.

My point is not so much about Steamboat, as it is a general disagreement with the statement, "if you're not breaking the law, you've got nothing to worry about." This notion will only lead us down a path that will eventually end with us all having to carry and turn over "ze papers" whenever the Gestapo, er, police ask for them. I don't know about the rest of you, but I'd gladly forfeit my $98 lift ticket to make the statement to Steamboat that our 4th amendment rights are important to me. If they're so interested in making sure that it's an "upscale" resort, maybe they should impose a dress code and interview members before acceptance in the club.

Hmm ya I should forfeit my $200 dollar season pass to WP because communities are instigating searches. This way no one has to listen to my annoying rambling as I complain to the trees in the BC. DOWN WITH THE MACHINE!

Thanks for the info!

A big thank you to everyone who has replied to this thread. I appreciate all of your comments.

I live in the Front Range and don't normally ski the big, tourist resorts like Vail and Steamboat (I am more partial to the dirtbag ski areas like Loveland). However, I am planning to meet up with some friends who ski the 'Boat every year, and your comments have put my mind at ease.

I am a law-abiding citizen who doesn't like to be searched just so I can enjoy a day of skiing with my friends. I disagree with what mhelm said that if we don't want to be searched then don't ski Steamboat. What happens when we get searched on our way to work? I know, I'm probably paranoid, but I've been following what the TSA is doing at the airports. I get the feeling that this will soon be happening on the major interstates.

Ok, enough ranting. Enjoy the snow, and I'll see you in the 'Boat!

I saw the error right after I sent it, but figured it worked well as a double meaning anyway. Bottom line here is... I have ridden more than 10 days this year and have seen no one searching packs. When they do search on specified days the resort employees do the searches. The police are there just in case they are needed... usually not needed at all. This whole article was just something to get attention, and should be ignored just like most of the news!
