    Around here, if a backpack is is laying around, someone will go through it (if locked to an immovable object) or run off with it immdiately if not. Interesting post though when you think of CCW in such a sport with lots of possible tumbles and spills.

    Personally I would want my CCW on my person for the sake of safety for all concerned.

    I can't recall what its called but the carry thing you wear around your waist that keeps the weapon down by your who-ho sounds like the choice here.

    Look forward to reading the follow-up posts.

    Best!

    I live in Park City....ski just about every day...carry every day. But I just can't find a reasonable setup for skiing with my gun. I know...anytime anywhere.....but I lock it up when I'm on the hill (a 10,000ft hill lol). My buddy tried skiing with his XD40sc in a belly band last season....it came out mid run and flopped around in his jacket until he could stop. Seems like the danger of carry methods outweighs the potential threats on the mountain. If I skied out East....maybe I'd carry more often while skiing as you east coasters seem to be a bit on the high strung side (JK...couldn't resist).

    Now that being said....I'm thinking of picking up a Sig P238....I'll carry that in a pocket holster zipped up in my jacket or mid layer. But a full size gun or even a compact would really hurt to fall on.

    No. Some events in life dont require concealed carry. Skiing is one of them. Its probably more dangerous to carry it.

    I've actually seen no weapons signs at some of the closer ski areas in NC. This was when I did not have my permit though. I may need to check whether or not I can carry if a place is posted in NC and what the signage requirements are.

    I currently only have IWB holsters for my PPS, which would not even work with the type of ski pants i use (overall style). The easiest way to carry while skiing might be a holstered pocket gun in a plastic bag in a pocket.

    Couldn't agree more... seems a bit excessive. You've got a much better of breaking your neck or your leg or falling off a cliff somewhere and slowly dying of hypothermia than getting into an Self-defense/deadly force situation. IMO

    My brother and I both carry, but lock them up when we put the boots on. We always start with "no crazy runs today..." then end up on a wild run and pushing each other. Ive always felt safe on the hill. Besides, I dont think there is a good area (most body parts hit the ground at some point) to keep it other than a pack and that is not option for me.

    Snowman, its funny we call them hills when they are that high. Ski A-basin and touch the sun!

    I always ski with a winter Camelback which is really nice because I can carry a small survival kit (you never know up in the mountains), water for the day, lunch and my Sig.

    Well it shouldnt be a problem if its in my assault pack(back pack) and my assault pack never leaves my side.

    if anything, carry it in my assault pack, but this is one situation i probably wouldn't worry too much about it, except for bears and moosen and the like
