Oh don't worry we'll just close the area instead of finding whos guilty. That way they can go somewhere else and we'll close that down too. Cuase that must be the answer right?  What a lazy way to handle such a volatile problem.


It's somewhat of a known fact who some of the woodcutting violators are around this area. Thanks to our justice system though, it's almost impossible (too expensive) to prove anything in a court. Unfortunately closing gates is the least expensive alternative.

On the bright side though......less traffic makes the fishing holes alot better over there. :laughing:

Said it was locked a few weeks ago and thinks it is locked for the "season". Anybody know what the season is? I'm getting tired of this BS. We citizens are being kept off our public lands by our fucking left wing government and it is not ok. The Ahtanum/Tampico is 95% closed to anybody without a snowmobile, yet we all pay that stupid discover pass to use our vehicles/toys up there. It's time to become outlaws, fuck the system. Rant over

Maybe we should take over one of the lookouts in protest.

I don't think there's a lookout anywhere around here that they would care about. If it wasn't for privateers Blue Slide (cabin) and Jump Off would be gone already.

Athanum is gone during the snowmobile season and it's never coming back. Period. Our fight now is to keep it open when grooming is done. It won't be long before we lose spring wheeling up there also.

Sounds like it is a  seasonal closure from here on it out. Jeff says it will be open May 1st.
