These trips include school field trips that go on USFS land and the annual In-State Outing each summer. Every wilderness area in Colorado has a group size limit. Maroon Bells/Snowmass has the most restrictive (without looking it up) with a 10 person limit.
So this is because CMC is a commercial endeavor? An individual and 10 of his friends going snowshoeing in the Mt Evans Wilderness wouldn't fall under these same guidelines?
