This may sound like a dumb idea, but I raise the question nevertheless.

What is the common resorts' outlook on folk who skip the lift and ski uphill at the resort? Not the policy per se, as the vast majority of ski resorts don't allow it (in Tahoe area only Sugarbowl has an allowed route for skinning and Kirkwood allows it after hours), but what if you are caught skiing downhill with no lift ticket but with a backpack with skins in it? 

The scenario what I am pondering is skinning up outside the bounds and going down inbounds (i.e. doing the opposite of the sidecountry skiing), just for the sake of logging vertical feet/working out/testing new equipment and not having to worry about avalanche control, etc.

Thanks.
