BLUERIBBON SEEKS ROLE IN SNOWMOBILE LAWSUIT

"This is an important challenge which could affect Forest Service snowmobile programs and travel planning nationwide" said Joni Mogstad, President of the BlueRibbon Board of Directors.  "BlueRibbon was involved in all aspects of the process creating the 2005 Rule, and has taken the lead defending recreation interests in numerous lawsuits interpreting the Rule. It is essential that our members' interests in snowmobile access and other forms of recreation be protected here, and our unique experience makes BlueRibbon singularly qualified to serve that role.  We have little choice but to seek party status in this case," Mogstad concluded.

The case was filed in the U.S. District of Idaho in late November, 2011 by the Winter Wildlands Alliance, a preservationist group seeking dramatic restriction, if not elimination, of snowmobile access to the benefit of exclusive "human powered" recreation.  The case is presently assigned to U.S. Magistrate Ronald Bush, who last year struck down portions of the Salmon Challis National Forest travel plan.  The Forest Service has not yet filed an appearance in the new lawsuit.
