The issue was whether to permit 540 snowmobiles per day into Yellowstone or limit winter access to guided snow coaches.

PARK SERVICE TO ALLOW 504 SNOWMOBILES PER DAY IN YELLOWSTONE

“Snowmobile opponents wanted to see the machines eliminated from the park, saying they cause air and noise pollution, while snowmobile supporters want more, arguing many local businesses rely on income from snowmobilers.”

guess who won?
