I would sit there happy with piece of mind that comes in knowing that all my efforts were going into something I like to do. That means not hiking. The only backcountry I would do is Cat or heli-skiing. I would only do that with guides that know there stuff. It's more of a calculated risk.
I think ski areas are good because you don't get lost. You don't have to know how to read the snow and rescue someone. They have ski patrol for when you get hurt. It is better than being stuck on a mountain while the rescue crews try to get you out of there. Why risk your life for some fresh tracks? All you have to do is wake up early and be the first one on the mountain on powder days or know of a good powder stash.

Just about everything that turns you off BC skiing is what makes me love it. I'm glad the majority of skiers share your opinion. It leaves more untracked snow in the back country for people like me. Even weeks after the last snow storm I'm getting untracked dry and light snow in Summit County and its worth every minute of the hike to me.

Copper was sick on monday. getting back east wasn't, though. Now that the sun's out I'm so jealous of anybody with the opportunity to hit it. the closed runs down the other side of the mountain are about balls deep...uh, at least that's what some bad egg that ducks ropes told me.

I hope in the future Americans are thought of as a warlike, vicious people, because I bet a lot of high schools would pick "Americans" as their mascot. -Jack Handy
