Snowmobilers who use the Little Belts, Castles, and north half of the Crazy Mountains are being reminded by the Forest Service that snowmobile use is only authorized from Dec. 1–May 15 of each year.
In March 2018 a travel plan correction was signed to revise authorized use dates for snowmobile use in that portion of the Helena-Lewis and Clark National Forest. The language clarifies the 2007 Travel Management Plan's Record of Decision.
The clarification is meant to improve safety and avoid conflicts between wheeled vehicles and snowmobiles using the same routes at the same time.
