Overshoot 2

To fund need infrastructure improvements in the Sea to Sky region, an annual vehicle pass is proposed. Read the proposal here: Carrying Capacity Plan—Sea to Sky Region

Two classes of pass are proposed: Forest Pass and Sno-Park Pass.

Initially, priority should be given to provision of parking and trail head sanitation for the forest pass. For Sno-Park, priority should be for winter plowing to parking.

We wrote to Recreation Sites and Trails BC about the proposal. We received a response on November 5th, 2019 as follows:
Thank you for your email of October 3, 2019 to Honourable Doug Donaldson Minister of Forests, Lands and Natural Resource Operations, and Rural Development about instituting a visitor-pass system in the Sea-to-Sky (S2S) corridor. I have been asked to respond.
Recreation Sites and Trails (RSTBC) is aware of the challenges created by the very high outdoor recreational users in the S2S, and the challenges this creates for volunteer groups in the area. The recreational opportunities that are offered by RSTBC in partnership with many volunteer organizations, like the B.C. Mountaineering Club (BCMC), and local governments are attracting a large number of users.
Currently RSTBC and BC Parks have user pay systems in place for over-night camping in various locations in the S2S, other recreational activities on Crown land (such as hiking, biking) continue to be free-of-charge. RSTBC provides support to local groups where budgets allow.
RSTBC is currently not pursuing a visitor pass for the area. Most of the recreational opportunities could only be delivered through partnerships with volunteer groups and local governments, and we will continue to support our partners in providing these opportunities through other ways.
