Sallie Barber Road and Gold Run Road closed to snowmobiles

SUMMIT COUNTY – The Summit Board of County Commissioners has closed Sallie Barber Road and Gold Run Road to snowmobile use inside the Gold Run Nordic Center Operations Area.

Both closures were strongly recommended in the Golden Horseshoe Travel Management Plan, developed through an extensive public process that included public hearings, forums, task-group meetings and staff analysis.

The Gold Run Nordic Center expanded onto the Gold Run Road area in the 2008-2009 winter season, and several conflicts erupted between Nordic users and snowmobilers. The closure does not block access to areas in the Golden Horseshoe designated as open to motorized use.
