Park City Police Blotter Shows Skiers Still Poaching The Resorts During Lockdown

By

“Skiers have been seen on the slopes of Deer Valley and Park City Mountain Resort since the closures. Using the slopes when they are closed is prohibited as the resorts have long indicated that the slopes can be dangerous when they are closed.”

There may be a shelter in place order but The Park Record’s police blotter is reporting skiers and snowboarders are still poaching Deer Valley and Park City Mountain Resort. As we reported last week, uphill skiing on a closed resort can be considered trespassing and lead to legal action. STAY HOME!
“The Park City Police Department last week continued to find problems on the roads as people headed toward the closed Deer Valley Resort slopes, causing another series of parking issues. Deer Valley ended the ski season in March, several weeks earlier than planned, as the novel coronavirus spread in the community. Plentiful snow remains on the slopes, and people were seen on the slopes shortly after the closing.

More people were spotted in the last week, according to Police Department logs. Some of the activity has been toward the upper elevations of the resort, in Empire Pass. There is little parking available there, though, and drivers have left their vehicles on the roads. The police have been monitoring the area as officers attempt to ensure the parked cars are not a hazard or block access for emergency vehicles.

Skiers have been seen on the slopes of Deer Valley and Park City Mountain Resort since the closures. Using the slopes when they are closed is prohibited as the resorts have long indicated that the slopes can be dangerous when they are closed.

The Police Department has said it is not enforcing trespassing laws unless the resorts request enforcement.”RELATE STORY: GO HERE
