U.S. Forest Service Issues Final Policy for Over-snow Vehicles on National Forests, Grasslands - Policy Complies with Federal Court Order
WASHINGTON, Jan. 27, 2015 – The U.S. Forest Service today released the final policy for managing snowmobile and other "over-snow" vehicle use on national forests and grasslands. As directed by court order, the policy requires that roads, trails and areas where over-snow vehicle use can occur be specifically designated by local Forest Service mangers. Previously, managers had the discretion to decide whether to designate specific areas for over-snow vehicle use.
