skate skiers like me, to be sure, are going to be especially affected. but most skiers of any ability will enjoy a groomed trail more, that is my belief. because the trail will turn into a mess with hikers postholing, because believe me if they don't groom they will let hikers on the trails. and that will really suck, backcountry feel or no. the trails will turn into a icy, postholed, crappy mess.
see my other post about a text of a letter to New York State commissioner Carol Ash.
