So this is a thing now



This sign is vigilante graffiti placed illegally on public lands.

The chain is quite indicative of a mindset intent on claiming ownership of something that is owned by the public in general.

Please remove this selfish, narrow minded eyesore from our public lands. If you want a sign, go through proper channels.

Been following this thread for awhile and I totally agree with OPs opinion that skinning there is in poor style, unsafe, and plain lazy, but illegally posting that sign is crap.

Backcountry skiing is inherently dangerous, but you can't dictate how others choose to use public land, and you certainly can't chain garbage like this to public property.

We need to educate the masses that appear to lack basic mountain skills, but I don't think that is the best way to go about it. Getting yelled at by downhill skiers or a sign might not work, but sending several tons of snow crashing down on them might just do the trick. Sometimes you gotta learn the hard way.

You wouldn't catch me skinning that zone with such easy safe access around the corner, but to each his own.

a friend of mine posted a sign along a hwy 20 red zone warning people that they were about to park in an avalanche path.

ahh, but that sign didn't last long, an avalanche took it out.
