    From what I can find, no, you can not use a snowmachine within the corridor except for transporting from outside the corridor to other land outside the corridor, but not to within the corridor. Check out note 1 on page 116 of the hunting regulations for motor vehicle restrictions. (http://www.wildlife.alaska.gov/regul...pdfs/gmu25.pdf)

    Hope that helps.

    If you have a trapping license then yes you can hunt fur bearers inside the corridor with a snowmachine as long as they are in season. Or so I have read and been told by troopers. Good luck getting an educated response on this volatile subject on an internet forum much less this forum.

    No, you cannot use offroad vehicles, including snowmachines, for any use other than exploration, mining or research. You technically aren't even allowed to recreationally use a snowmachine inside the 5 mile corridor.

    Do you have a source that indicates this? Everything I can find says it is closed to snowmachines. Thanks.

    Last time I talked to the troopers, it has been illegal to use snowmachines in the corridor since it was opened, but they were forced to start enforcement it about 5 years ago. I was about to start up a trapline up here, and talked to the trooper in Coldfoot about this. One of the state workers at the Sag River Camp by Slope Mountain was running a trapline with his snowmachine there and was told to finish out the season, but after that he would have to stop.

    Just my experience from about 5 years ago.

    the trail to chandlar lake is open to snowmobile travel,closed to hunting if you start in the corridor,,or transport hunting gear by snowmobile,this was the trooper in coldfoot who wrote the tickets in the post about the wolf hunting,,all 4 went to court charges were dropped as this is a grey area(fish and games words)

    I talked to one of the USFWS enforcement agents about this just a few days ago and she said absolutely not and they will issue tickets for snowmachine travel for trapping.

    Yep I screwed up this morning and should have looked at my notes prior to posting. Vehicle travel was still illegal but you could use a firearm for trapping inside the corridor the last time I looked into it. Who knows what that reg is now, guess it all depends on who you ask and where you read it.
