Winter Travel Management

In part in response to the settlement of Snowlands Network's litigation, the Forest Service has commenced winter travel management in the Sierra Nevada under subpart C of the travel management rule.  This is the critical time to shape the future direction of backcountry ski, snowboard and snowshoe access and snowmobile management. 

Participation in the winter travel management process will be Snowlands’ primary focus in the next few years.  There are several ways in which our members and friends can participate in this process.  Please see our Winter Travel Management page.
