The Kemmerer Field Office (KFO) closes public lands in the Slate Creek, Rock Creek, and Bridger Creek big game winter ranges to all motorized vehicle travel (e.g., snowmobiles, all-terrain vehicles, pickups, and sport utility vehicles) from Jan. 1 through Apr. 30 annually.
Use of these areas by non-motorized means (i.e., walking, horseback, cross-country skiing, mountain biking) is still allowed. Highways and county roads are not affected.

The following areas are included in this seasonal closure:
