    You can. But I will identify that tree and bring my high school jock strap from Lacrosse team. And then you will be responsible for starting a new trend much worse than the bras.

    Good for Alta; more places need to ban it.

    I know i don't need to ask for them, but I'd like your opinions please!
    EVERY lift line? C'mon. The big one was ripped down with new Spruce. Whatever. The orange rope all the way down right side of Bims Whim makes my blood boil tho lol. That is ugly litter.

    If by "back in the day" you mean this season and every season under the Skye Peak Express Quad...

    Let's be clear: The reason nobody has mentioned panties yet is because these are not WOMENs underwear this is KIDs underwear. There's no appeal here! If you are 12 years old you get a pass. Otherwise........

    Actually @ Sugarbush on April 22nd I noticed some of the most glaring examples. I believe under all 3 major lifts in operation but most memorably beside Heaven's Gate.

    If my vote counted I'd say clean that stuff up but don't make it a hardcore rule. Just clean it up a couple times a season and eventually it will lose it's draw.

    As to the OP, I have to agree. There used to be ONE "lucky tree" at a resort for folks to throw beads on during spring skiing and riding. Now, at least at Alta, there are like ten trees under Sunnyside. There are like four under Gadzoom at Snowbird. I'm not sure why folks needed more than one tree to decorate. It is a problem at Alta because that is National Forest land, and, at least before El Trumpo, the NFS was pretty concerned about impacts to the forest.

    I'm glad someone is finally standing up for all those squirrels and chipmunks strangled to death by discarded bra straps and mardi gras beads.

    This made me laugh. Being from NJ, my first thought was there was no way this originated in Vail.

    While not a big fan of the bra tree, it's the empty beer cans that disappoint me. My imagination allows me to think that my fellow skiers share my love of the outdoors and a desire to keep our environment clean.
