Tourism Minister Kevin Krueger says backcountry high-markers may have their snowmobiles seized if legislation is enacted.
Krueger is hoping this legislation will put a stop to high-marking in British Columbia. High-marking is when snowmobilers race up a steep slope to see who can get the farthest. This sometimes triggers avalanches like the one near Revelstoke in March which killed two men and injured many others.
