At Seymour, the uphill trail is not associated with the ski resort. In fact, I believe the ski hill strongly discourages those skinning up from using their runs back downhill.
That may be the "official" position, but I've never had any issues skiing back down the runs after going up the backcountry trail, especially early in the morning when the lifts aren't even operating yet.

However, I have seen people skinning and snowshoeing directly up runs while the lifts were operating, instead of using the backcountry trail, which is just asking for trouble.
