This might fit better in http://www.supertopo.com/climbers-forum/1768379/The-Coast-Range-B-C-Mt-Bute-Waddington-etc

I wrote with my comments, on paper at that. I wrote in 1990, when the master plan was last revised. I wrote on several occasions before and after, when the heli-skiers trespassed outside their permit area, e.g. to operate right beside the Himmelsbach Hut. In my view, heli-skiing in the park ought to be phased out over the next five years. If the proposed huts - which I'm undecided about, and fear are a trojan horse - go ahead, increased ski activity in the area may have the serendipitious benefit of discouraging them anyway.

Nobody listens to me anyway.

Anders, do you know how to move my comments and the replies to the Wadd/Bute thread?

I don't think there's any way, certainly none simple. All you can do is move/re-post your comment on that thread, and hope that Greg et al re-post. Shouldn't be hard.

I think it is a very good fit here, while we wait for the trees to start falling at the Gondola site.

It fits as it very well demonstrates how policy driven by entrenched dogma does not work on a broad scale. Each park environment is unique and is presented with very different user impacts and demands. Also this thread is highly political as is the current review of Garibaldi park.

I think it's quite interesting that so many ski tourers seem to be indifferent to continued heliskiing in the park.

One theory: The new generation of ski tourers are also sledders. Noise pollution is less of an issue to them. Maybe they wouldn't mind sleds as well?

Whistler Heli Ski appreciation day!

Come celebrate another decade of careful avoidance of free market competitive pressures with our favorite poster child for the corporate welfare state! Their assumed position of entitlement at the expense of the average shmuck is scheduled for another ten year renewal.

Help them celebrate 30 years of sucking on the teat of government largess with a nice note of appreciation to:
