The Order prohibits operating any over-snow vehicle, including snowmobiles, within the Ski Cooper permitted area in Lake County, and within 500 feet of designated ski and snowshoe trails maintained by the Tennessee Pass Nordic Center.
Excluding the general public from utilizing over-snow vehicles, including snowmobiles, within these areas will protect the skiing, snowboarding and snowshoeing public and ski area property from unnecessary safety risks and facility property damage. The Order will be in effect until February 3, 2016, unless rescinded earlier.
Additionally, the portion of the Ski Cooper permitted area that falls within Eagle County is closed to over-snow vehicles by the White River National Forest. This Order will enable consistent management of over-snow vehicles for all portions of the Ski Cooper operating area.
