Ashpan Snowmobile Area is just off Highway 44, approximately four miles north of the junction of high- ways 44 and 89 at the north- west entrance to Lassen Vol- canic National Park. Ashpan has 102 miles of designated trails. A warming hut and re- strooms are available. Snowmobile opportunities on the Lassen are made pos- sible through a partnership between the Forest Service, California Off-highway Mo- tor Vehicle Recreation Divi- sion and many dedicated vol- unteers. Be sure snowmobiles or all-terrain vehicles have cur- rent registration and a "green sticker" on the ma- chine. Fees collected for green stickers provide the funds for staging areas, restrooms, warming huts, and trail grooming programs. Cross-country Skiing LNF offers many miles of marked and unmarked trails on the Almanor and Eagle Lake ranger districts. There are 14 different tours for Nordic skiers. Among the most popular are the Bizz Johnson, Eagle Lake, McGowan Lake, Colby Meadows, and Lake Almanor trails. Descriptions and maps showing the locations of each of these are available at Dis- trict offices. Snowshoeing More and more people are discovering the fun and health benefits of snowshoe- ing. Pack your snowshoes and head off anywhere on the forest for a winter adventure. The Almanor and Eagle Lake ranger districts host several snowshoe walks throughout the winter, which include interpretive talks. Be sure to bring a camera, as it's not unusual to en- counter wildlife species in their snowy habitats or other winter treasures worth a snapshot or two. Safety and courtesy Since many skiers and snowshoers also enjoy tour- ing on the groomed snowmo. bile trails, they should be aware that snowmobile oper- ators often cannot hear other trail users. On shared trails, skiers should ski single file on the right side of the trail, and keep arms and poles out of the way of passing snowmo- briers. Snowmobile operators are advised to slow down to min- imum speed when approach- ing and passing skiers and snowshoers. Consideration of others is necessarY to avoid user con- flicts and ensure everyone has an enjoyable and safe outing in the snow. There are miles of both groomed and ungroomed trails that vary by location. While ungroomed areas are open for snowmobiling and cross-country skiing, partici- pants should stay alert for possible hazards under the snow. Do not trespass onto pri- vate property and be aware that riding snowmobiles in the Caribou and Thousand Lakes wildernesses, Lassen Volcanic National Park and other posted non-motorized areas is prohibited. Watch for signs indicating areas that do not allow snow- mobiles. The 2010 Motor Ve- hicle Use Maps, available at Forest offices or online, show where wheeled vehicles may travel over snow. A weekly groomed trail re- port will be published and posted on soon.
