Skier Out Of Bounds At Pico

January 11, 2013

in Killington,News

State Police reported yesterday at about 4:05 p.m. James Rapitzky, 18 of Saratoga, New York skied out of bounds and was lost for about 40 minutes. Rapitzky said he was on the Summit Glades and became lost, but that he did see some out of bounds signs.

The state police have rescued more than 40 skiers in the last month after the skier has traveled outside the boundaries of Killington and Pico resorts. Should skiers pay for going out of bounds?

poorly presented question. Are you asking if skiers should pay for rescue – or an extra fee for going out of bounds? Are you suggesting ticket kiosk’s along the boundaries?

It’s far better to have someone call with an hour (or several) of daylight left, when they can be told over the phone how to navigate out of the woods, then to have them wait until it’s dark, they have no light source, and they are completely screwed. We need to find ways to discourage stupid behavior without discouraging people who need help from asking for it.
