Snowmobilers reminded of wilderness restriction
Regional U.S. Forest Service officials are reminding snowmobilers that motorized equipment of any kind is illegal in wilderness areas. Each year, Forest Service and Colorado State Parks staff cite riders who illegally enter designated nonmotorized areas such as the Mount Zirkel, Sarvis Creek and Flat Tops wilderness areas. The minimum fine for snowmobilers caught riding in wilderness areas is $525 and can reach up to $5,000 and six months in jail, according to a news release.
Other snowmobile regulations:
■ A free backcountry-use permit is required for all snowmobilers riding in the Buffalo Pass Winter Recreation Area.
■ Snowmobiles must stay on designated trails within the mixed use and commercial area in the Buffalo Pass Winter Recreation Area. For a map of the area, visit www.fs.usda.gov/mbr.
■ Snowmobiling is allowed only where 12 inches or more of snow is on the ground. All snowmobiles must have a valid Colorado snowmobile registration.
■ Snowcats have the right of way on trails.
