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

Bro Sad After Conditions Don’t Match Report

MOUNTAIN TOWN, USA — A snowboarder’s morale was crushed Friday morning after discovering that his local hill’s powder snow report was completely out of touch with actual snow conditions on the ground. Promising 14 inches of “blower” off-piste and “packed powder” everywhere else, the Marmot Mountain snow report eventually convinced 31-year-old rider Sam Rooney to get out of bed and rally for early turns, despite seeing sheets of rain falling outside his low-elevation residence.

5 Creative Ways to Bargain in a Ski Town

There are a myriad of ways to get what you want, and in a ski town one’s coffers can include much more than the traditional dollar. Knowing what you’ve got, and identifying what others are bringing to the table, can go a long way toward “making it”. Below are a couple of categories in which one could be rich:1. Social Currency Are you the hot (literally) new thing? Or maybe the most fun, drunk guy at the bar? These things can get one far, but certainly not all the way, and unfortunately
