Sounds great for the road surfaceI 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.
