The aims of Kcros
KCros is a special interest
group with a primary focus on the issues of service and facilities
for cross country skiers in Kosciuszko National Park. Experience has
shown that a unified, well organised representation is more effective
than many small scattered voices. KCros has the mandate of various
cross country organizations and independent skiers to speak on those
issues on their behalf as a single strong voice.
to ensure that the views and needs of cross country skiers are addressed
and met in the operation of and in the future development of the
Kosciuszko National Park.
KCros is aware of the differing
needs of beginners, novices, children, seniors, handicapped, racers,
ski orienteerers, day tourers, back country tourers and campers.
The role of Kcros
KCros provides the forum for the discussion of
issues by interested parties. It will publish material of interest in
a newsletter twice a year and make information available on the internet
and by e-mail. It offers individuals, clubs, associations, organizations
and the NPWS the opportunity to raise issues, share information and make
their views known to KCros and to each other.
- KCros provides the structure
for varied and unrelated cross country skiing groups as well as independent
skiers to speak with one voice on issues that affect safe and enjoyable
participation in their chosen sport anywhere within Kosciuszko National
- KCros will identify and investigate relevant issues of concern to cross country
skiers. When necessary KCros will coordinate lobbying activities and
establish an effective lobby network when and where it is needed.
