I'm thinking about taking my family snowmobiling in Yellowstone National Park next winter as we will be very near West Yellowstone. Is snowmobiling still permitted there and will it be next year? Any recommendations? Thanks.

I dunno if riding is still allowed on PUBLIC LANDS, however, if I had any money I would be tempted by the new Yamaha snowmobile.

The first snowmobile designed specifically around a race-bred, high-performance four-stroke engine with more than 145 hp, the Genesis Extreme. Derived directly from the blistering in-line, 20-valve 998cc four-cylinder found inside our equally revolutionary R1 motorcycle, an award-winning supersport machine without peer. New high-performance 998cc 4-stroke engine, based upon the successful R1 motorcycle design, has more than 145 horsepower! It out-performs the legendary SRX in acceleration and top speed. This engine not only has more horsepower than competitor's 800cc twins do… it also develops an incredible 65% more low-end torque.

Bush halted the no-snowmobile rule and required a new "study", so you still can at the moment. No telling when that study will be completed, nor what its recommendations will be, nor what will actually be done, if anything. I think the Seattle Times or P-I had an article about this in just the last couple of days. If not, Yahoo had it from Reuters. If interested in reading it, do a search on their websites. . . .

Alright? Another reason to be glad there's a Bush/Cheney sticker on the bumper of my Suburban!

Maybe they'll figure out a way to make personal watercraft more environmentaly friendly and quieter, too.
