This is a cross-post from my ski blog, Ruby Mountain Ski Days. Read through to the end.
There's Corn in Them Thar Hills
The motorized user crowd is tearing up the land at the head of Lamoille Canyon, right now. The snowmobilers aren't content to let their season end... no, they're driving their machines up the Stock Trail and over the willows to access the snow that starts hundreds of feet from the end of the pavement, creating a huge erosional mess in a very, very fragile area.
Where's the outrage, folks? Why are we even TALKING about continuing to allow motorized off-road travel? Oh, that's right, it's Elko County, where we grow 'em stupid and with motors.
