The Deschutes National Forest closed central Oregon's Dutchman Sno-Park's snowmobiling access last weekend, citing early snow melt. Dutchman Sno-Park is located near Mt. Bachelor on the Cascade Lakes Scenic Byway.

According to a news release, the closure is earlier than normal; often snowmobilers can access high country from Dutchman Sno-park through Memorial Day weekend.

Closures take place when snow levels drop to below 12 inches and continue until enough snow falls again in the winter.
