I thought the purpose of the day pass system and the seemingly arbitrary, inconsistent and vague application/imposition of the term "Carrying Capacity" was to prevent the spread of Covid. Or was it?
Seems to be restricting user numbers to a 'cherry picked' set of trails was the intention all along, and Covid was just an excuse and afterthought.
And then there is the 70% user displacement, which we front line volunteer trail builders are experiencing the full effect and wrath of.
I want to know the decision making and science behind the caps, and why some trails require a pass, and others (such as those in the vicinity of multi-national corporation Vail/Whistler Blackcomb) do not.
Time for Backcountry BC to do what we do best; to start asking some hard and inconvenient questions of BC Parks and the ministry.
