    Vermont State Police and tourism and ski industry officials are trying to come up with a plan to deal with skiers who ignore warning signs and get lost in the woods.

    In the last several weeks, first responders have had to look for 47 lost skiers and riders, most of them in the Killington-Pico area.

    Parker Riehle, executive director of the Vermont Ski Areas Association, tells Vermont Public Radio those breaking the rules are tough to reach.

    He said Killington has suggested putting full-size cut outs of state police near their ticket windows. He says the displays would include stern warnings about the dangers of skiing out of bounds.

    Riele says Killington also talked about posting public safety personnel at some of the trouble spots on the mountain.
