Whitefish Mountain Resort is considering a change to its uphill travel policy after two skiers were caught in a closed area where ski patrol was using avalanche explosives.

According to the resort, ski patrol encountered a man and woman Feb. 19 who skinned to the summit of Big Mountain. A patroller told the skiers avalanche control work was in progress in Hellroaring Basin and in the East Rim area and asked the duo to descend the designated route on Toni Matt. A second patroller also asked the skiers to ski down Toni Matt.
