Some random formally of the name Pole Plant wrote this in a thread about a dog on a leash on Mt Bogong. PP was of course "howled down" but ..... 5 years later his words remain a poignant insight. Discuss .... when will skidoo and dog sled tours (as an example activity) be allowed on underutilized areas of our Alpine National Parks as they seem a logical continuation of the ever expanding use of our natural resource ? Note the mountain bike trail from Thredbo to Lake Crackenback, a development unheard of even 10yrs ago. Note the fairly open access to a myriad of activities within national parks in the USA and overseas. Note governments continual reliance on user pays access fees.
