Cariboo Closures 2017/2018
Under the Mountain Caribou Recovery Implementation Plan, scientists recommended over one million hectares across the mountain caribou range be closed to motorized winter recreation to facilitate recovery of caribou populations. Since 2009, government has closed areas to snowmobile use across the Mountain Caribou range in order to support population recovery. The maps below show the areas open to snowmobiling and areas closed under the Wildlife Act. These maps can be viewed and downloaded. Maps are georeferenced PDFs so they can be used in mobile applications to determine your location relative to boundaries, open riding areas and trails.

Off-road Vehicle Registration Now Mandatory
ORV registration with number plate display is mandatory on Crown land, including resource roads. An off-road vehicle is designed for off-highway use and does not meet safety standards for on-highway use. In the event that you want to operate your off-road vehicle on a highway, you will need to register, get a plate, a license and insurance.
