Plumas Snowmobile Plan Deadline Extended

Comments Due March 1, 2019
Meetings scheduled

Plumas National Forest has extended the deadline for public comments on their Draft Environmental Impact Statement for a snowmobile management plan. The plan will determine where over-snow vehicles are allowed to go on the forest for the next twenty years.

Five alternatives are described in the DEIS. The Proposed Action, Alternative 2, will close some areas for the benefit of non-motorized recreation and eliminate snowmobiling below 3500 feet. It will also allow vehicles in proposed wilderness areas and the grooming of snowmobile trails right up to a wilderness boundary.

Plumas NF has announced that two open house meetings to discuss the plan with the publice have been scheduled for Feb 26 and 27 in Plumas County and Oroville. See our Plumas winter travel management page for details about the meetings and how to submit comments to the Forest Service.
