For much less than the cost of one snow cat a resort could have a cadre of people on the hill at all times encouraging safe skiing.
Mango, we never had this enforcement in the past. I don't want it now. The problem is - skiing has changed. And, Now we have snow boarders. The ski areas let too many people ski on a trail. It's like skiing in Japan now (not that there's anything wrong with that). The solution is better design. We have those yellow jackets on our mountain and they are nice but I wish they would quit telling me to slow down, especially when I am not skiing too fast.
