Increased Snowmobile Access Proposed in Colorado Backcountry

Via Winter Wildlands Alliance:

For over 10 years we have been working closely with Friends of the Routt Backcountry on resolving conflicts in the Hahn’s Peak Area of the Routt National Forest. Unfortunately, the Forest Service has failed to adequately consider the impacts of a proposed snowmobile trail to the local backcountry ski community and we need your help.

The Routt National Forest has issued an Environmental Analysis that ignores the impacts of snowmobiles to the environment and other recreationists. The preferred alternative would establish a new snowmobile trail through the middle of a popular and historic non-motorized ski destination. We have less than 30 days to submit comments in opposition of this ill-conceived proposal.
