Great idea. I hope other ski areas will do the same

The highest priority of the Search and Rescue Fund is to reimburse county sheriffs for mission costs incurred in rescues of persons having paid into the fund through surcharges on hunting and fishing licenses, registrations of boats, off-highway vehicles, Habitat stamps, and snowmobiles, and the voluntary purchase of Colorado Outdoor Recreation Search and Rescue (CORSAR) cards. If funds remain after all missions for these "licensed" persons have been reimbursed, the fund pays for missions for relatives of licensed persons. A third tier of funding is available at the end of the year for costly missions for unlicensed individuals.
Also if any funds remain after that teams can submit grants to help purchase equipment and gear that are otherwise out of their budget. Smaller and remote counties rely on these grants a lot.

My view is that I need to, in some way, pay for the services I use. if I hike in RMNP, my taxes and my park pass are my contribution to that, if I hike in other public federal areas, again, taxes are paying that. if its a state-owned property, I'm paying sales, lodging and fuel taxes during my journey.
It is REASONABLE that rescue services come at a cost... how the local entities defray and/or recoup that cost, could reasonably be left up to them.
