"... had been previously contacted and warned by park staff regarding his illegal operation but continued his activities."

He's an idiot. Seems like he was asking for the punishment.

That's a whole different thing...
No one's claiming to be Certified on a bunch of stuff
Is it that different? He's been warned about requiring a permit. He continued operating without one.

Basically, pretending he has a permit when he knew perfectly well he doesn't have one. That no different from claiming to be Certified when none exist.

Same applies to ski areas that operate mostly on federal land. There is no question that charging for ski lessons on federal land without a permit is a crime.

This guy would have gotten away with if he stopped when asked by the NPS.

Or apply for a permit.

But I don't know what it takes to get a permit granted. Maybe it's as pointless as getting hired as a ski instructor on a mountain (get paid < 1/10 of what the customer paid)

The "punishment" isn't all that severe. Perhaps he gambled he'd be better off operating without permit TILL he gets caught...?
