Special Regulations, National Park Service, Yellowstone National Park, Winter Use

Docket ID: NPS-2011-0006
Agency: National Park Service (NPS)
Parent Agency: Department of the Interior (DOI)
The 2009 interim rule allows for managed snowmobile and snow coach use, with restrictions on their use and numbers, through the 2010-2011 winter season. In the absence of a new rule, oversnow vehicles would not be allowed in Yellowstone beginning in the 2011-2012 season. The proposed rule incorporates the preferred alternative from the draft environmental impact statement. To prepare for implementation of the new winter use plan and to manage winter use during the 2011-2012 winter season, we will publish an interim rule by mid-December 2011.
