Out of Bounds Skiing

Share your stories of going O.B. I'd also like to know if anyone has hit the gondi line at Whiteface.

Re: Out of Bounds Skiing

Out of bounds, like beyond the ski area boundary?  Or are you talking about under a rope?

If you are asking about out of bounds, I assume you are asking about OOB terrain accessed from inbounds, with the help of a lift?

Re: Out of Bounds Skiing

Some of the best skiing comes from ducking ropes but I don’t know if you can even call it “out of bounds” where I do it. I’ve actually had patrollers hold the rope up for me.

Re: Out of Bounds Skiing

This pic sparked my thoughts of the WF gondi line. Those trees are thick though.

Sigworthy indeed.

Well I’m no renegade but I ski outside of the area quite a bit, I just call that skiing though.

I used to ski in permanent closures back when I was younger and lived in places that had that sort of stuff. I regularly threw the rope over my head to poach Alta Zero in Jackson when I lived there. I eventually got caught in a terrifying slide while poaching the Poison Spider Chutes in Telluride back in 2006. I should have known better that day or truthfully I did but decided to ignore the obvious to satisfy my desire. Luckily I wasn’t killed. I saw a dead slide victims body air lifted out while tripping on shrooms and touring south of the Vill one time. That was kind of eerie.

Re: Out of Bounds Skiing

That's seriously a cool story bro. We used to ski the closed trails at night at Brodie Mountain back in the day. I remember my friend took off on me and the next thing I knew, he was running uphill past me. "Snowgroomer's coming!"
  We dipped off to a ravine until they passed. Good times.

I guess that leaves any discussion of Plattekill terrain out.

Re: Out of Bounds Skiing

There is pretty much no way to poach the Gondi line and not get caught

You have to hike out into only one spot and will get spotted and they will be waiting for you as you schleep out

It takes a crap ton of snow to be able to ski it safely and the deeper the snow the harder the post hole walk out
if You French Fry when you should Pizza you are going to have a bad time
