02-383-52. Pg. 20. Caption: Cross-country skiers using Lost Lake Park on Sunday wait to pay their $2 trail fee. According to municipal statistics released Friday, revenues from the controversial fee totalled $6,600 between Dec. 15 and Jan. 6. The fee has been levied only Friday to Monday, except during the Christmas holidays and when skiers were asked to pay for grooming seven days a week. The season-long cost of providing groomed trails four days a week is estimated at $32,000, while $26,400 in revenue is expected, for a loss to the municipality of $5,600. So far this season, the cross-country operation is showing gains over the 1983/84 season, when there was less snow on the ground for a shorter period of time. To date, revenue is up 75 per cent, while average revenue each day has risen 16 per cent, and the total number of paid skier visits is up 75 per cent. Elsewhere in B.C., ski operations are charging trail fees for the first time -- but most of them charge more than Whistler. Cypress Park and Seymour cost $3.75, Mt. Washington costs $4.50, Mt. Baker $2.50 and Manning Park $2.
