    "nothing definitive that states an wheeled OHV converted to a tracked machine aka snow vechile isn't allowed on the trail."

    What is definitive is that there are "OHV's" and "Snow Vehicles" separately listed in the Kananaskis Country Regulations. OHV's are allowed in some areas, including if you put tracks on them, and only snowmobiles are allowed on certain trails.

    Not all "Pubic Land" is the same - know before you go.

    Yes you are. There is a table for OHV's and Snow Vehicles listing which areas each may access, at which time of year, in the document - look harder.

    I'll help:

    Government of Alberta Ministry of Transportation: Off-Highway ...
    ... utility terrain vehicles; miniature motor vehicles; amphibious vehicles; snow
    vehicles, including snowmobiles and snow bikes. Exemptions. ...

    www.transportation.alberta.ca/ohv_helmets.htm - 19k - 2017-10-13

    More specifically:

    Helmets are required for anyone driving, operating, riding in or on, or being towed by, an OHV. An OHV is any motorized vehicle built for cross-country travel, including:

    • dirt bikes, motorcycles, mini-bikes and related 2-wheel vehicles
    • all-terrain vehicles (ATVs)
    • utility terrain vehicles
    • miniature motor vehicles
    • amphibious vehicles
    • snow vehicles, including snowmobiles and snow bikes

    Operating an OHV on a designated Snowmobile Trail -it is all in the regulations in the document provided above, all you have to do is read the ENTIRE document to understand it, not cherry pick parts.
