WASHINGTON SNOWMOBILE TRAIL MAP APP UPDATED AND FREE - AVAILABLE FOR ANDROID & IPHONE! (Jan '21) - The Snowmobile WA app has seen a lot of improvements over the last 12 months thanks to users and sponsors.  This app offers enthusiasts the information they need to hit the snow including trails, trailheads, places to ride, and select businesses that cater to snowmobilers. Trails include groomed routes that make up the Washington Sno-Park system, other roads popular with snowmobile clubs, and connected trails in Priest Lake Idaho and the Tollgate area of the Umatilla National Forest in Oregon. Once you download the maps, your phone's built in GPS will keep you navigating in areas without a cell signal.  Click on a trailhead to learn what pass is required along with information about facilities and parking. The public lands background tells you where you can ride off trail, where you have stay on designated trails, and where snowmobiles are not allowed so you can have fun and stay legal. Each trail and trailhead also links to the appropriate avalanche forecast so you can check conditions before you head out. Click here to go to the Snowmobile WA online map, or explore the embedded version below.

OSV DESIGNATIONS ON NATIONAL FORESTS (Dec '17) - It's coming!  The Forest Service has been directed to complete travel plans for over-snow vehicles (OSV).  This process will require diligence on the part of snowmobilers to ensure we don't lose any important trails or riding areas.  While it hasn't started in ernest here in WA, it has in CA.  Check out this letter sent to the Lassen National Forest by the BlueRibbon Coalition.  Issues pertaining to the Pacific Crest Trail are relevant here.  Read the letter here.
