But, John, in retrospect, wouldn't you think that a group of us could clear some of the glade areas so those of us and others wouldn't be taking the risks of catching debris with out skiis when doing a litle off piste? I, for one would love to see cherry bowl open again like it used to be. It would take a dozen or so of us to clear the major debris from that area and do so in one or two days. We would mark the larger stumps so we don't get stumped
and get to know the best lines for that section. Ten or so years ago, we used to go into the glades and compact the snow prior to a big dump of pow. The experience was much better with a little base under the skiis.
Anyway, the motorbike/atv races are another issue. Doc and company should consider doing away with them for the very reason you state, but the lure of $$$$ is probably too great at this time.
