The Covid-19 outbreak has everyone on edge. That includes Utah police officers who must be sick of dealing with people who are not following the best advice of public health officials.
Brighton ski resort in Utah is currently closed to uphill & downhill traffic due to Coronavirus. Skiing and snowboarding at Brighton are currently considered trespassing, a misdemeanor offense.

UPDATE: This guy was taken off the road. I think due to the amount of people that had a similar experience and and filed complaints. Good job people for the massive response! ……………………….. Let me make this perfectly clear, we were in no way trespassing. We were just snowboarding. This officer (badge number 52-“delta”) was completely out of line. By conducting yourself in this manner you make everyone in your department and every officer that wears that badge of honor an absolute disgrace. You should be ashamed to call yourself an officer of the law. When you lie about laws you’re sworn to uphold, you’ve not only lost yourself but every piece of dignity that deserves any bit of respect from your fellow officers. I am appalled by your actions and I hope you take a good long hard look in the mirror and figure out exactly what the hell you’re doing. One thing you are NOT DOING is your job!!!!!! I won’t even get into the blatant disregard for public health. I’ll let the public comment on that.. #serveandprotectnotharassandabuse
