Over Snow Motor Vehicle Use - 2014-2015 Snow Season


Special Order for 2014-2015 Snow Season  (signed November 12, 2013)

The Payette National Forest (PNF) has issued a one year motorized over snow vehicle special Order that has modify the restrictions to over-snow motorized use currently in effect (451,200 acres closed to motorized use), in three areas. The changes are: 

• Granite Mountain: 4,730 acres to be closed to over-snow motor vehicle use from January 15 – March 31, 2015. 
• Hitt Mountain: 764 acres to be opened to over-snow motor vehicle use.
• Squaw Point: 1,234 acres to be opened to over-snow motor vehicle use. 

All other existing non-motorized over-snow closure areas would be re-instated.

As stated above, 1,998 acres in the areas around Hitt Mtn. and Squaw Point is open (change from existing condition) to over-snow motor vehicle use for the entire 2014-2015 season and 4,730 acres in the Granite Mtn. area would be closed to over-snow motor vehicle use from January 15 – March 31, 2015 (75 days).
451,200 acres are currently closed to over-snow vehicle use. The modifications adjusts the number of total acres closed to over-snow motorized use to 453,932 acres for the 2014-2015 Winter Season. This acreage figure does not include the acres within the PNF portion of the Frank Church River of No Return Wilderness, which are closed by law to over-snow motorized use.
