    They can save the bragging for their cell mate if that's really the case.

    If you throw an empty (probably Pabst) can from the lift, it's sayonara. There shouldn't be tolerance for that IMO.
    I've accidentally dropped food wrappers from a lift, and I'm not changing my plan to try and go pick them up, especially after the wind has its chance.

    Garbage cans at the top are very helpful, but some people are gonna litter anyway.

    In my experience, Ski Patrol does not take kindly to you doing on closed trails, even to pick up litter or something valuable...

    Up at Jay Peak a friend dropped his pack off the lift onto a closed trail. We asked the lift attendant/operator at the top station and he told us we'd have to go down and get it. It was a black diamond, so there was some decent pitch in spots and it was quite icy... basically ice and snow patches in between rocks and grass. After my friend slipped, wound up sliding 50+ft and barely missed a boulder with his head, we decided we needed to strap in to use our edges. When we got down to the pack there was a Ski Patrol guy on the lift who was furious and screaming at us. We tried to explain the situation, but he refused to listen, instead just repeatedly yelling at us and telling us that if he found us there or saw us later, he'd be taking our lift tickets.

    they don't want to have to perform an evac where they can't safely get a sled down over snow.

    I understand that completely, but they should also listen to people as well.

    Just pointing out, that even if you were being a good Samaritan to pick up litter, you're going to get yelled at/in trouble on a closed trail.

    Back on subject - I really don't have an issue w these few and far between trees, but used to call these "Mardi Gras" trees when skiing w my two sons of early ages. Softened the fact there was underwear on the trees, yet allowed my kids to smile and enjoy the expression of freedom. We even added some beads at one point to contribute.

    Don't blow things out of proportion and enjoy the experience.

    I just don’t see littering as an acceptable “expression of freedom.”
