Sierra Trek 2018

Sierra Trek is this week.

It’s probably too late to sign up to make any of the runs but the base camp is open to the public, no charge!

Feel free to stop by Friday or Saturday. You can check out the vendors, buy raffle tickets, enjoy the live bands or just hang out and talk OHV stuff.

Losing ‘over the snow’ riding areas

Below is an email I received regarding the latest efforts by Anti-OHV activists to close our public lands to OHV use. It’s from the local Tahoe snowmobile group. They recently held a meeting in SLT but more importantly, they need public comments.

Please take the time to write the Forest Service and let them know you are against closing 73% of the current snowmobile riding areas!

The scarier line in this email and FS proposal is the 1000′ corridor of non-motorized use along the Pacific Crest Trail (PCT). The Tahoe National Forest first put this ‘idea’ on a map several years ago. If they get their foot in the door with over the snow use, the next step is every other OHV use and all year long.

The Rubicon an many, many other trails cross the Pacific Crest Trail.

After the get their corridor along the PCT, thy will want it along every other trail in the country. Let’s stop this now.

WE ARE AT RISK TO LOSE MORE OF OUR RIDING AREAS IN TAHOE/HOPE VALLEY/BLUE LAKES!!!

Enough is enough!

The Winter Wildlands have proposed closures of 73% of our existing riding areas in the ElDorado National Forest. And the Forest Service really, REALLY need to hear from all us so that the Winter Wildlands aren’t the only ones being heard.

And… as if that’s not bad enough — the Forest Service is pushing their “preferred alternative” which also closes and limits our riding areas as it imposes a 1000 feet “corridor” around the Pacific Crest Trail (PCT). Yes, the PCT goes through the Blue Lakes’ area and we would lose some of our most fun areas if the Forest Service got their way!!!

WE NEED TO PUSH BACK!!! WE’RE DONE LOSING RIDING AREAS!

Please go to our website for more info. And please SEND IN YOUR COMMENTS — deadline is August 6! Be respectful, be personal and be passionate in a constructive way!

Fire Restrictions on the TNF

I just found the date on the Tahoe Nationl Forest website: July 16th.

No fires, no welding, no charcoal. Gas only and you still need a permit.

Don’t be that guy.

 


Fire Restrictions are in place on the ENF

The Eldorado national Forest has started fire restrictions as of July 14th.

The Tahoe National Forest has not yet posted restrictions but last year it was the 25th, the year before the 11th. Check the TNF website before you go. It is the users responsibility to know what restrictions are in effect.

Fire Permits are free from any forest office or even online.

FYI, the Lake Tahoe Basin Management Unit does not have fire restrictions by date. No fires are allowed outside official Forest Service fire pits and then only in official Forest Service campsites.

Don’t be that person!
