So how does this 'Season Pass' program work, where individuals "own a share in the (public) golf course", and have the opportunity to "lock out the public"?
Synonyms: Lock Out & Exclusion
Oh, that's right, I keep forgetting, being owned by the city doesn't mean the 'public' courses can't allow private season pass course owners to lock out other members of the public from using the course.
This is looking a lot like the famous 'trickle down' program that was championed by the Reaganites before the 'trickled on' saw through that smoke screen.
And it also looks like a great way to provide some of the 'public' with exclusive (Get it? Lock out/Exclusion of others) use of a 'public' course.
Club Talk: "We've got to make sure there's enough slots (trickle down) for the "occasional" non-owning citizens, so our exclusive position isn't threatened."
So, by the last two sentences, it seems the author is not only encouraging skiing in the backcountry alone, he is also berating experienced ski professionals who offer common sense safety advice. Perhaps Mr. Wickham, is more confident than he should be, even if he may be prudent and aware in the snow. He is not prudent nor aware journalistically. How many inexperienced skiers will look forward to skiing alone thanks to the article, and go out half cocked.
Wow BW! How responsible of you to print this.
