It's Almost Snowmobiling Time

"Snowmobiling is alive and well in Park County," said Bert Miller as he opened today's Chamber of Commerce luncheon presentation. As the President of the Wyoming State Snowmobile Association, Miller told the audience that the sport generates $7.4 million across the state in revenue each year. Of particular interest is the Yellowstone Access Program, operating only from the East Entrance of the park. There are now a limited number of both guided and non-guided tours available through Yellowstone National Park. The association also builds safety shelters in remote locations, connecting miles of trails that cross several states. These allow snowmobile riders to get warm but also provides space for search and rescue teams when needed. The shelters include a cell phone with signal booster for emergency calls, wood stove for warmth, and other helpful items. The snowmobile association members maintain the shelters and prep them for each coming year. While Miller said this season is off to a slow start for snow pack, they are confident it will be a good year for snowmobiling in Park County, including the Bear Tooth Mountains. #reboot #news
