WINTER MOTORIZED INFORMATION AND RESOURCES
The Eastern Sierra is home to terrain accessible to snowmobiles and other Over Snow Vehicles (OSVs). The Inyo National Forest winter recreation map shows permissible riding areas. More information about motorized winter recreation can be found on the Inyo National Forest website or on the California State Parks Off-Highway Motor Vehicle Recreation website.
ESAC’s services, including the daily winter avalanche advisory, are an essential resource for motorized users. This page has been developed to provide educational resources specific to motorized users. General avalanche education may be found at our Avalanche Education page. Moving forward ESAC will continue to seek opportunities to expand education and outreach to motorized users.
ESAC is applying for a CA State Parks OHV grant and needs public comments in support of our grant application! This grant will support expanded OHV avalanche education and outreach while helping fund ESAC’s core services. More information and instructions on how to comment can be found HERE. The public review and comment period begins 3/8/22 and concludes 5/2/22, at 5 PM.
