Wyoming State Trails Says No New Snowmobile Maps This Winter

Wyoming State Trails Says No New Snowmobile Maps This Winter

Written by on October 6, 2022

“Unforeseen circumstances” have prevented the printing of new maps for Winter 2022-2023, so Wyoming snowmobilers will have to find their way with older maps.

Wyoming State Trails – part of the Wyoming State Parks system – announced the lack of new maps for Winter 2022-2023 in an Oct. 5 Facebook post. Luckily, there are “little to no changes” from the maps printed during the last winter season.

Furthermore, the department replied to a comment asking if the WyoTrails app will be useable without cellular service. A new version of the app is launching later this year that will allow that functionality.

Snowmobile trail maps from Winter 2021-2022 are available on the Wyoming State Trails website and the app Avenza Maps.

According to the Wyoming State Trails website, there are over 640 miles of O.R.V. trails and 2,585 snowmobile trails in the state, managed by various agencies. The State Trails Program does not own any property or directly control any trail. Instead, the Program partners with other land management agencies to maintain, create and provide trail funding, labor, and equipment.

98% of the trails in the Wyoming State Trails system are on federal lands.

The State Trails Program is primarily funded through motorized user and registration fees – the Program is charged with administering the snowmobile and ORV programs in Wyoming. Management of non-motorized trails is a secondary role since other federal, state, and local agencies are the primary non-motorized trail managers in Wyoming.

Snowmobiling permits can be acquired online. Permits are also available thru permit-selling agents throughout the state.
