New Travel Management Information for Winter Season 2021.
The winter season is considered the snow season. Winter Season over-snow motorized travel restrictions begin Nov. 23 and ends May 20 annually. (Vail Pass Recreation Area Nov. 15th – May 20th). Over-snow vehicles are defined as: “a motor vehicle that is designed for use over the snow and runs on tracks and/or ski or skis while in use over snow.” (36 CFR 212.1). Motor Vehicle Use Maps (MVUM) are the official maps for designating all roads and trails available for public motorized travel on National Forests & Grasslands. Visitors should not rely on any other maps for making decisions about motorized travel. The MVUMs are free to the public at local Ranger District & Station offices and at the Forest Headquarters’ Offices. A Motor Vehicle Use Map (MVUM) is a legal enforceable document that identifies the roads, trails, and areas where motor vehicle use is allowed in a Forest Service administrative unit or ranger district. MVUMs are reissued each year. It is the responsibility of the motor vehicle user to acquire the current MVUM. The MVUMs display National Forest System (NFS) routes (roads and trails) designated as open to motorized travel. The MVUMs also display allowed uses by vehicle class (ex. highway-legal vehicles, vehicles 50 inches in width or less and motorcycles); seasonal allowances, off travel distance allowances, and provides information on other travel rules and regulations. Additional information about MVUMs may be obtained from visiting the Forest website: http://www.fs.usda.gov/detail/whiteriver/home/?cid=stelprdb5328680 USDA Forest Service is an equal opportunity provider, employer and lender.
