Vail Pass Winter Recreation Area is open to motorized and non-motorized uses and requires that you purchase a day or season pass to enter the area. It is open from approximately November through May, snow conditions permitting (see our Winter Motor Vehicle Use Map for motorized over-snow dates at https://www.fs.usda.gov/detail/whiteriver/maps-pubs/?cid=stelprdb5328680). There are fee stations at all of the trailheads where you can purchase day or season passes. You can also purchase season passes at the Dillon Ranger District office. Maps are available at these locations and show users which routes are open to motorized and non-motorized travel. There are some groomed routes in this area. 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. USDA Forest Service is an equal opportunity provider, employer and lender.
