You have to pay now to use the Callaghan mainline?? Lame. So you can't easily access the park without paying. Maybe it's worth it to get to the park, but I don't know about shorter trips like up the ridge that we did recently. Scott Webster 09:58, 26 January 2009 (PST)

Yes, you have to pay if you want to use the groomed trail. I think you can still ski beside the grooming without paying. The road cut is very wide. If you feel like complaining, I would suggest lobbying the government for non-motorized status for areas that we can already access without paying, like Hanging Lake and the north side of Metal Dome.

Yes, that would be nice. I didn't notice how easy it would be to skin up next to the grooming... if that is possible then I'm fine with it. I guess it seems kinda like a bad precedent. If all the logging roads ended up being groomed for XC and charged $6, backcountry access would take a big hit. Scott Webster 10:54, 26 January 2009 (PST)

Flagging

I'm not sure that 100% of our flags are around trunks, but probably a good general guideline. Scott Webster 16:50, 2 February 2009 (PST)
