KALISPELL, Mont. (AP) - Seven snowmobilers have been cited for riding out of bounds in the Flathead National Forest.

Forest Service officials say they caught the snowmobilers after noticing snowmobile tracks in the snow in the Mission Mountain Wilderness Area.

Motorized vehicles are prohibited in designated wilderness areas.

Four of the people cited are from Kalispell and the other three are from the Polson area.

Each was given a citation for $325.



In a separate incident, Forest Service officials issued violation notices to two snowmobile operators who violated the Badger-Two Medicine closure area on the Lewis and Clark National Forest.
