Letter to Wyoming Governor Mark Gordon.
An excerpt: Several decades ago, the WSSA was instrumental in developing various local areas into what has become the great statewide network of snowmobile trails we currently have across Wyoming. And WSSA and our local clubs are particularly proud of the fact that this winter trail system that we helped build now contributes an economic impact of over $255 million annually across our state, according to the ‘2020-2021 Wyoming Snowmobile Survey’ recently completed by the University of Wyoming’s (UW) Department of Agricultural and Applied Economics. Most importantly, this economic impact occurs during winter when local economies often need extra support to help keep our small businesses open. Highway 212 is ‘the heart and core’ of the Beartooth Mountains snowmobile trail system which, according to the UW study, accounts for over $7.8 million in annual trip and equipment expenditures in the Beartooths/Park County area. So, we remain heavily vested in trying to keep this trail system viable and offer the assistance of our local club members to help do whatever it takes to keep this particular trail system fully open.
