All they need is one of these. And a desire to be rid of that foolish monopoly.

Maybe steel blades set in the rubber tracks, of course then there is the problem of damaging road surface

You don't see how long it actually takes to fit and remove them, but you can obviously go faster on them than Mattraks

I propose again my compromise solution.

Clear the road so you're not spending silly amounts of money on unreliable custom "oversnow" vehicles, run buses with chains instead.

But keep the road closed to public traffic, there's no parking anyway.

Say "Charlottes Pass" and some people think charming village. I think it's a piece of our publicly owned national park arbitrarily closed off to only those with the additional cash to get there. Nothing wrong with the vehicle-free alpine village concept but the closed road just frosts me. Visitors to KNP are already subsidising half the other parks in the system with their entry fees; it adds insult to injury that there's a facility that's closed to them and requires even more money to access.

Sounds great for the road surface :p

It's not closed, their day tripper price is cheaper than Perisher or Thredbo and that includes transport, or you buy a package deal for the period of time your there, if you buy in Feb you get a 20% discount, there is always cross country, so I don't see why you are using money in this debate.

Nothing comes for free and Iám sure the NP&WS will not fit the bill for road clearing and if Kevin did then I would expect their day ticket price to increase because they would have to limit patronage or the lift queues would become to big

All the resorts pay the NP&WS big money to be there, so they must be allowed some ability to make decisions for their businesses after all they provide a service and the only way to do that is to make a profit, unlike Kevin who is lucky enough that losing money doesn't seem to be his primary concern. If it was why would you increase your stakeholding and buy Selwyn
