I know it would be a pain and receive allot of backlash from skiers and snowboarders.. but I think there needs to be mandatory backcountry/avy licence to be able to be in areas like this (with heavy fines for those without). There are too many people that have the gear with little knowledge of how to use it and/or what to do when it's needed.
