Breaking a trail through deep powder is very difficult work.
Committed backcountry skiers and snowshoers gladly do this work for the benefit of all who follow. Walking in these trails destroys the trails, at least for skiers, and must be broken out again.
It only takes one inconsiderate walker to ruin the efforts of the “breakers” and enjoyment of all who follow. This has already occurred since the last snowstorm on both our popular Rabbit Ears trails and even at Dry Lake!
Please, use skis or snowshoes! All backcountry users will thank you!
