Bridgeport Winter Recreation Area Closure

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.
