Snowmobiling in Yellowstone - Why We Fight

This is your call to action! It is up to all of us to Save Out Sport and we need your help! The anti snowmobile forces have tried to have the federal courts close Yellowstone; they were denied, but they‘re back at it. The National Park Service is preparing another Environmental Impact Statement (EIS) for a “Winter Use Plan for Yellowstone National Park.”

The Congressional mandate for Wilderness is entirely different than that of the National Park Service. Wilderness is all about protection. The National Parks protect, but are also supposed to be visitor friendly. The idea is for the American public to come and visit.

When creating the National Park System, congress mandated that the Park Service: (1) “promote” and “provide for the use and enjoyment” of park resources, and (2) “leave unimpaired for the enjoyment of future generations.”

Radical environmental groups openly admit they would like to change that. They believe the National Parks should be all about protection, just like Wilderness, and they are working hard to make that happen. Wilderness activist groups have attempted to close all the dirt roads in Canyonlands National Park, eliminate personal watercraft from Lake Powell, and ban snowmobiles from Yellowstone.



Snowmobiling is a wonderful and totally unique way to experience Yellowstone in the winter. Technology allows us to have that experience and minimize the impact. Guides and regulations ensure compliance with all Park Service rules, just like in Canyonlands and Lake Powell. The Blue Ribbon Coalition (BRC) and Slednecks fight to protect snowmobiling in Yellowstone because it’s the right thing to do!

The planned EIS is just one of many such environmental analyses; we know the process seems to never end, but thanks to the involvement of snowmobilers and OHV users across the country we are getting another chance to save the riding lands. This could provide a reasonable, science-based, long-range “Winter Use Plan for Yellowstone National Park” and ultimately squash the anti-access groups hopes to close Yellowstone.

It is important that we stay engaged with our consistent and increasingly supported opposition.

I was brought up to do for myself and ask for nothing and now the government is bound they have to protect us from ourselves. We have to stop it, there is nowhere else to go.
