If you don't want to contribute financially would you consider coming out on a trail work party?

Would you like a day use shelter as an alternative? We can certainly discuss it. Perhaps you can help to finance, design or build it. We don't want to create tension in the community, as you term it. We're open to solutions. But just to say the cabin should be wide open might be impractical because there are such huge numbers of people visiting the lake. I think a day use shelter makes more sense.

What are your thoughts?
I like to reiterate this point. While not a very experienced hiker, I've camped up at Garibaldi, and was there for over a week. I'm sorry, but more than half the day-hikers were ignorant, selfish jerks. It's just the way it can get. You can either protect the nice things for the small group who want to contribute to the community, or leave everything open for the lowest common denominator to destroy.
