A snafu that could have proven dangerous turned out to be great for parents of kids in ski school.
Ski lift operators mislabeled a bunny slope as black diamond (most difficult, expert only) and dozens of adults flocked to show their parallel techniques on a black diamond slope.
Many stayed all afternoon thinking they were expert skiers.
"Boy, did you see the size of that mogul?" New skis, new outfit, new me.
The sign that was meant for the bunny slope was a Green Circle (easiest trails and slopes) was placed on a hazardous-through-the-trees cliff trail.
The trail's fine powder was uncut all day.
The adults weren't about to waste their time on a Green Circle, and the kids were too smart.
