Hiking a resort after it closes
Im thinking of bring a pvc rail or 2 and hiking my resort that closed a month ago. They still have enough snow on a run to put one or 2 features up. Is this risky? Do places ever kick you out? What should I think about when doing this?
Do they not have any features? why not use the rails that are there. I know some places move everything away from the hill but others not at all.
Also it depends on every hill. Mount snow it was always very chill, some places not so much. Might want to say out of site.
Also BE RESPECTFUL. If you're up there, don't fuck things up, break things, steal things, litter, etc. IF you find tools put them back where you found them. Some places it's chill but if people can't be mature about it theyll ruin a spot for everyone
The people are pretty chill its called tyrol basin and I believe they move the features away but ill have a friend who lives really close to check.
I've never done it but if its public property they probably won't care. Unless there is signs specifically saying private property or no trespassing they can't really do anything besides tell you to leave.
Also if anyone says, can you guys get out of here by for, or can you do it on this trail, or you guys really can't be here but you can kick it for a little bit, or even nicely boots you out. Be respectful.
For the most part the policy is that it's not really cool to do stuff like that, like they would never advertise come set up your rails on our property and possibly get hurt, but with the employees there it's sometimes it's all good.
I just hate when people are pretty cool about telling people whats up and the people will be huge dicks.
At Mount snow 09 we were hiking rails between the pipe and inferno a week or two into june.
I was planning on hiking the vail pipe but they wreck the flat bottom. We hiked the pipe at killington one year and nobody said anything.
I wouldn't recommend asking, and try to be as discreet as possible but seriously be respectful. Unless somebody is being a huge douche be cool.
My home mountain closed a few weeks ago and my friends and i set up 6 pvc rails (including a dfdfdf) and 2 fairly large jumps. You should be good if your resort is anything like ours, no one has said anything
The only mountain I've heard of kicking people out for this is Sunapee. So i do it at the second closest resort to me and they never care
mount snow is mad chill and most the time the park crew just sets up stuff on grommet for people to hike so its pretty chill. I've hiked Loon once so far but we try to stay pretty out of sight. soooo if the mountain seems kinda dickish during the winter i would recommend staying out of sight
You'll be good! Just have fun
