Recreational Access to Mount Seaton in the Bulkley Valley
In December 2001, the Ministry of Forests (MOF) approved a silviculture prescription for cutblock CP 551-1 on Mount Seaton, about 40 kilometres north of Smithers in the Bulkley Valley. A local backcountry skier (the complainant) asserts that MOF approved the silviculture prescription without regard to concerns that the cutblock would allow snowmobile access to an alpine area with no history of snowmobile use. The complainant believes that skiers will have to abandon the alpine area if snowmobile use reduces its value for skiing.
