Obey the rules, uphillers

Dear Editor:

A notice to uphillers: Please obey all signs, closures and rope-lines even though the mountains are not open to the public at this time. In addition to your own safety, the safety of on-mountain crews is at risk when closures are violated. With this season’s significant snowfall we are seeing a significant increase in uphill traffic and a very tender snowpack that is uncontrolled at this time.

Uphilling is a privilege. Please preserve it by obeying all in-bounds closures and signs.
