GMNF imposes snowmobile speed limit

Posted: Updated:
RUTLAND, Vt. -

Starting this weekend snowmobilers in the Green Mountain National Forest will have to slow down.

Vermont U.S. Forest Service officials have announced that snowmobilers are now required to keep it under 35 mph on all Green Mountain National Forest Trails. The speed limit covers more than 400,000 acres of forest terrain that is also used by hikers, snowshoers and cross country skiers. Officials say high speeds have direct links to severe and fatal snowmobile accidents.
