Flagg Ranch May Offer Snowmobile Rentals

Moose, WY – Snowmobiles may still be for rent at northwestern Wyoming's Flagg Ranch this winter, just through another company. The ranch says it's negotiating with the National Park Service to enter into an agreement with a company to rent snowmobiles from its site. The ranch earlier decided not to rent snowmobiles this winter. It said new rules in Yellowstone and Grand Teton National Parks limit snowmobile numbers and don't guarantee access to either park. Under the agreement, officials say the rental company would pay Flagg Ranch a fee to operate from its site. The ranch, which sits between the two parks, will still provide basic services this winter like a convenience store, gas station and restrooms.
