The Bridger-Teton National Forest is currently accepting applications for businesses to offer guided off-highway vehicle tours on selected designated motorized trails located on the Jackson Ranger District. Providing guided services on the National Forest requires a special use permit. Spokesperson Mary Cernicek explains that because there is competitive interest to offer this service among businesses, the Forest Service uses the prospectus process to solicit applications and select the most qualified companies. Cernicek says by having those, it encourages skilled and experienced individuals or organizations or companies to conduct those outfitting and guiding activities in a manner that assures forest visitors are receiving high-quality and safe services. Interested businesses can request a copy of the prospectus which outlines the opportunity, expectations for performance of this public service, and information on how to apply. Applications along with the required processing fee are due by May 31st.
