Resort Bans Skiing — Moguls Vanish Overnight

Epic Mountain Resort posted "no skiing" signs all over their base Friday. Most were promptly stolen or vandalized. Creative Commons photo.

MTN. TOWN, USA — Saying conditions were never this good when skiing was still allowed, snowboarders rejoiced this week after locals-favorite Epic Mountain Resort formally banned skiing. 

Although the ban has only been in effect since Wednesday, riders have been astonished at the rapidly improving conditions on-and-off trail. Epic Mountain Snowboard Patroller Luke Wallace says he's never seen the mountain look this good.

"The moguls were gone within 48 hours," Wallace told TGR. "I'm dumbfounded. For patrol, this is a big deal — we're expecting way fewer injuries now that half of our traffic aren't carving huge death mounds in the middle of every run."   

Local rider and self-described shredder Jones Fourpow, 24, said he was "stoked" about the skiing ban. "It's been so sick. So deeep — just the bros — PBR — blahhhhh..."  

Here at Epic, we've given this whole 'skiing thing' a fair shot.

Epic Mountain had been considering a skiing ban for the last several seasons due to trail congestion and the reoccurring mogul problem that had both locals and resort officials exasperated. 

In a bluntly worded marketing statement, Epic Mountain PR specialist Elissa Taylor explained the resort's controversial ski ban.

"Here at Epic, we've given this whole 'skiing thing' a fair shot," the statement reads. "But unfortunately, it's just not working out. Families have repeatedly complained, and as such, we've been forced to tell our skiing clientele to head elsewhere — like Alta, Mad River Glen or Deer Valley."

      And where is that?  Don’t find anything in an internet search.

And where is that?  Don’t find anything in an internet search.

Traveling is something that broadens your mind.  I’ ve visited many countries and seen many cities. But ski resorts are still a mystery. This also applies to writing skills, so I prefer <a>legally buying essay papers</a> . I think it’s the best solution in my case.

As an Alta skier happy that snowboard riders aren’t allowed on the lifts, I see no reason that other resorts shouldn’t become exclusively snowboard zones.  Just as Alta’s position doesn’t really curtail snowboarders’ options in any significant way, Epic’s new position doesn’t hurt skiers’ options in any but a trivial way either.

Ok, ya got me.  Doesn’t look like there is an “Epic Mountain Resort.”  Still, who is to say some real area won’t follow suit?

I don’t think that it would be a great idea to ban skiing when the trails are looking so good this year. Moguls are indeed a concerning issue on every trail but I don’t think that you should be banning it because of this simple reason.

No moguls because all of the snow has been scraped to the bottom of the hill.

I think this is an informative post and knowledgeable. I would like to thank you for the efforts you have made in writing this article…

Amazing post. I have not read such a detailed yet original post like yhis one. Will surely share it on Reddit

The ban of skiing overnight is not a good step by resort. Because in winters tourist basically goes to hillstation for skiing purpose. In case of any tech help contact Geek Squad Support

The Dirtbag Squatter: Ski Town Caricatures

As fall fades and snow paints the landscape, countless mountain folk begin to feel the existential tug of winter. But there’s one type of outdoor enthusiast who’s commitment trumps all the rest. Masters of the art of discomfort, these individuals are known by many names: vagrant, gypsy, transient, bohemian, but most of the time, these restless wanderers prefer their given moniker: The Dirtbag. Styling out destitution like a badge of honor, poverty hasn’t looked this good since the Buddha

Zac Efron's dream of becoming a pro-skier is temporarily on hold. While we don't actually have any evidence that he has (had?) aspirations of becoming a pro, who wouldn't want to ski for a living? Either way, the Wildcats' team captain is sadly laid up following an ACL tear. While in Park City for the Sundance Film Festival, Efron went on a guided-catskiing tour which ended in injury. Don't worry Zac, the TGR crew feels your pain and would like you to know that we're all in this together.

Jason Levinthal and J Skis Continue Turning the Ski Industry on its Ear

Those living at the fringes of the American Dream are most likely to shake up the system. And those that live to ski are decidedly living at the fringes of the American Dream. Jason Levinthal, founder of Line Skis and former CEO of Full Tilt boots, undoubtedly lives to ski. Levinthal’s dossier is, in a word, stacked: X Games athlete and medalist; twin-tip pioneer; veteran of the ski industry trenches; serial entrepreneur. But most importantly, like any self-starter with a nose for success,
