(KSL News) The U.S. Forest Service has opened more land in Logan Canyon to snowmobiling, but many people aren't happy about it.
The Forest Service decided to give snowmobilers an extra 4,500 acres to play in, from the Tony Grove area north to Franklin Basin. Skiers and snowshoers say snowmobilers ruin the quiet of the backcountry, not to mention the smell of the exhaust fumes emitted.
They also say the noise disrupts wildlife. Snowmobilers disagree, arguing that they ride in higher elevations where animals have already migrated lower for the winter.
