I thought about this yesterday as I went about my business- are there any statistics anywhere for snowshoe/ski/ vs. bare-boot usage in the wintertime in the whole Park?
In the EHP- what is the adherance rate? And what would be a good adherance rate- like 80% compliance or so? (Even 60%?) I still think if you hit them with education, interesting signage, perhaps a "snowshoe awareness campaign", designated "snowshoe trails", and perhaps even "snowshoe days", it might sink in. Also, hit them when they are young- I introduced my nephew to snowshoes when he was 5 years old- its been 3 seasons now, and he now has his own pair, and thinks they are the coolest thing for the wintertime.
