Potential Effects if passed:

  • The State Trails Program funding could be cut in half
  • The snow side could be cut by approx. $1.2 million per year, meaning:
    • 50,000 miles of grooming could be eliminated
    • 6 to 8 groomers could be eliminated
    • Grooming in the following areas could be eliminated:
      • Black Hills
      • Casper
      • Gros Ventre
      • Kemmerer
      • Lander
      • Powder River/Big Horns
    • Once grooming goes away, use could drop, making it easier for anti-motorized groups to push for the areas to be wilderness
  • The dirt side could be cut by approx. $1.0 million per year, meaning:
    • No new summer trails or programs
  • Potentially jeopardizing approx. $1.4 per year in RTP money
  • Costing the state untold dollars and potentially upwards of $100,000,000 per year in tourism money
