    That doesn't seem to be the norm for snowcat tours. Sleds are allowed to use the roads built or used by cat ops at Jones, Vail, and Buffalo Passes. That really sucks about Aspen, though.

    I do wear the tether when I'm on the sled alone, but it is massively in the way when tandeming. Hmm. Gonna see if I can easily relocate it from the left to right side of the sled.
