Wolf Creek Warning....

Just to let everyone know the Rio Grande forest Service is back at it again.
There are 2 "officers" one female, one male cruising the parking lot at wolf creek Ski area looking to bust people for smoke, open canister etc....

My buddy was approached today, they acted real friendly at first, then it turned to your "acting real nervous, we think you have marijuana" He was not openly smoking, just getting in his car to go home...

He was told if he tried to drive away he would be arrested, unforn. my friend is young (20's) didnt know his rights and gave up bag of shake...followed by a 275 dollar ticket.

Weed is now legal in CO, but most ski areas are on federal land and federal rules (I assume) apply, which weed is still illegal, Class 1...but your rights still apply,

I'm a 20 yr WC local and have seen this fron the forest service in the past, and have been approached myself in the past for open canister...they were in ski gear, not uniformed, and other locals have been ticketed in the past...

on a positive note the condtions are fantastic right now

So...maybe....
don't drink, or get high at a ski resort. In an effort to sound cheesy, with a little powder, a bluebird day, and some buddies...it seems a little augmentation may be a little overboard. wait until you're old enough, grow up a bit, and perhaps stop endangering those around you both on the slopes and on the road. I'm no expert but I would think a little less hassle, preventing a bill of $175, and a clear mind might be just the change once in a while.

Damn, that sucks. What is the forest service doing in law enforcement thats completely unrelated to forest management? I've been having take out and apres ski parking lot parties for the last 15 years and have never been hassled. Guess I have just been lucky.

I'm pretty sure that regular FS employees can only write tickets for infractions that directly affect the forest like littering, cutting green wood, driving on closed roads, unattended fires etc. So unless the ranger is a Forest Service LEO (Law Enforcement Officer) they should have no business with with you. This might be a moot point because they probably wouldn't hassle you unless they are a LEO. Maybe ask for their badge to make sure it says LEO on it. Also you can tell a LEO because they carry guns, the regular rangers don't. I'll double check tonight and let you know.
