Oh yes they can!
(In more detail, it all depends upon the lease/permit terms, or rather their interpretation, which isn't at your discretion.)
But exactly what is your plan?
(And at what time of day?)
I mean, if you're going to xc up the back side on the roads, I rather doubt anyone is even going to notice you afterwards among the throngs skiing down the "resort" trails.
And then after you reach the base, no problems returning to where you started via some combination of hiking trails, snow-covered roads, highway walking, etc.
But attempting to xc up the ski trails during operational hours (especially weeknight or weekend) = you'll probably get run over even before patrol can eject you from the premises!
