New Snowmobile Best Available Technology (BAT) List

The “New BAT” designation refers to a snowmobile that meets the park’s Best Available Technology (BAT) standard. As of December 15th, 2015, all snowmobiles entering the park must operate at or below 67 dBA and must be certified to a Family Emission Limit (FEL) no greater than a total of 15 g/kW-hr for hydrocarbons and 90 g/kW-hr for carbon monoxide. A snowmobile will be certified for six consecutive winter seasons following is manufacture or until the snowmobile travels 6,000 miles. See the table below for a list of approved snowmobiles.

New NPS BAT Requirements 152 903 674


1EPA Family Emissions Limits (FEL) for Snowmobiles are 75 for Hydrocarbons and 275 for Carbon Monoxide (2010 and 2011 model years). (See Federal Register Vol. 73, No. 123, Wednesday, June 25, 2008, page 35946)

2Hydrocarbons: certified by EPA to a Family Emissions Limit (FEL) of 15 g/kW-hr or less.

3Carbon Monoxide: certified by EPA to a Family Emissions Limit (FEL) of 90 g/kW-hr or less. Air emission figures for carbon monoxide and hydrocarbons presented are either the Official Test Results (OTR) or the certified FEL. The Official Test Results are actual measured emissions.

4To operate in the park after March 15, 2015, a population of measurements for a snowmobile model may not exceed a mean output of 67 dBA, and a single measurement may not exceed 69 dBA, using the J1161 test procedures.
