Default IDAHO AND WYOMING FOREST RESTRICTIONS

If you haven't heard, there is a new lawsuit against the Payette and Boise National Forest in Idaho and the Bridger-Teton National Forest of Wyoming over their existing winter travel plan decisions.
There is an article pertaining to the Idaho portions of this lawsuit that can be found in the "NEWS" button in the header of this web page. I have also attached a file that contains this article.
This is one lawsuit that encompasses 3 different National Forests, in Idaho and Wyoming. Whoever fights for one, fights for all three.
Not sure what the BRC Blue Ribbon Coalition or the WSSA Wyoming State Snowmobile Association is going to do, or even if they are aware of this.
Hey folks, it is going to take a lot of $ to defend our areas. Here is our chance to put our money where our mouth is. Let's step up and be a part of the solution!

Default IDAHO AND WYOMING FOREST RESTRICTIONS

If we lose on this lawsuit, all other national forests will have to follow suit and they will be closed to snowmobiling except for what trails they will allow us on. There will be no need for a "mountain sled", just a "trail sled".
The Idaho State Snowmobile Association, http://www.idahosnow.org/ ,has updated their website and now has a PayPal Account to their "Sled Warrior" legal fund. You can find the link halfway down the homepage. 100% of all funds in this account is used for legal fees. We have a huge battle ahead of us and any donation would be appreciated. Please share this with your riding buddies.

Default Colorado Snowmobilers Helping Idaho Snowmobilers

The Colorado Snowmobile Association (CSA)has pledged up to $5000 match to challenge it's members to donate funds to the ISSA (Idaho State Snowmobile Association) for it's legal fund. The pending lawsuit from WWA (Winter Wildland Alliance) is going to be on the backs of the snowmobilers to defend ourselves and defeat it.
Let us all stand tall and do our part in this effort. Whatever happens here will have a ripple affect throughout the USFS winter travel decisions.
Let us show our appreciation for another group that is willing to assist us by putting "our" money where "our" mouth is.
Let us succeed in keeping our snowmobiling areas open for the next generation.
Go to their FaceBook page and read it for yourselves. Thank you CSA.

This is the latest in the "never ending saga" of winter travel plan law suits. "https://www.fs.usda.gov/detail/payette/news-events/?cid=FSEPRD566803"
You need to go to this link which will take you to the Payette National Forest website. It pertains to the removal of the existing winter travel plan map due to the "intent to sue" by the preservationists.
It is obviously time to get our own attorneys and start fighting back.
