The Humboldt-Toiyabe's spectacular 6.3 million acres makes it the largest national forest in the lower 48 states. Located in Nevada and a small portion of eastern California, the Forest offers year-round recreation of all types.
The Bridgeport Winter Recreation Area closed at 00:01 AM on January 17, 2015. It will remain closed to snowmobiles until there is adequate snow coverage to re-open. Backcountry skiing is permitted. This closure is set up to protect critical resources in the area - yellow legged frogs, Yosemite toads and fragile meadow areas near the Sonora. Although conditions looked good in December, warmer temperatures and weaker storms are slowly depleting the snow levels.
