I guess he knew better than the resort, where it was safe to ski. Same arguement, if the resrot closes an area, stay out.


Going OOB, is a different story.

An interesting sidebar to this very wise thought is that very few skiers really understand what terrain is or is not avalanche prone.

A few years ago, after many years of skiing Copper and thinking I knew the terrain, we were shooting some school training video and stopped in Patrol Headquarters at the top of Excelerator to look at the video on a TV. In PHQ they has a map, I had never seen before, delineating all of the known slide prone areas at Copper and many I never suspected were marked. Talk about a reality check.
