Has anyone run into one while there? I've heard stories of climbers seeing snowmobiles trying to climb Mt. Baker (which is illegal).
I also saw a WTA trail report from this weekend with someone else discovering belatedly that it's perfectly legal...and snowmobilers DON'T NEED A $15 PERMIT like climbers do.
I love the quote by the National Monument manager, that they don't intend to do anything about the complaints because he prefers to "let the users work it out". What does that mean? Ice axes at 20 yards?
I don't consider myself anti-snowmobile. They are a heck of a lot of fun, actually. I do not believe they belong in the same area with hikers, however. Too dangerous. The folks that gravitate towards motor sports (warning: overly broad generality to follow) tend to not be of a cautious or prudent bent.
And, I just don't want the rim of St. Helens to sound like Talledaga and smell like I-5.
