Plumas Snowmobile Plan Released

Comments Due January 24, 2019

Plumas National Forest has released a 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 the deadline for comments will be extended until Jan 24 and that two open house meetings will be scheduled for early January. Details will be announced the week of Dec 10.

Check out our Plumas NF winter travel management page for time and location of the meetings and how to submit comments to the Forest Service to improve the plan.
