USDA Forest Service Alert -  

Snowmobile / Snow Bike Use Restrictions

Three areas near Washington Pass, located off of State Route 20 in the Methow Valley Ranger District, will be closed to snowmobiles and snow bikes from January 1 through June 30, 2021. This temporary closure is being implemented to reduce safety risks due to unusually high levels of use in the area.
The portions of State Route 20 that are closed seasonally by snow will remain open to over snow motorized use. There are still many backcountry areas in the vicinity that also remain open. For information on areas still open to snowmobiles and snow bikes, as well as other winter recreation opportunities in the Methow Valley, please contact the district at (509) 996-4000.
The closure order and map can be found at: https://www.fs.usda.gov/Internet/FSE_DOCUMENTS/fseprd870163.pdf

Wintering Wildlife

As you get out this winter to enjoy the great outdoors, be mindful that these areas are home to many species of wildlife that over-winter here. Make note of designated mule deer winter ranges and minimize disturbances to all the many creatures (big & small) that call these places home. Thanks for doing your part to help keep our wildlife safe & secure! If you missed our Wintering Wildlife e-newsletter - Check out our blog!
