After spending a week up Franklin Basin we finaly got the snowcat off the mountain. We have made a few runs with the cat this week, and it seems to be running fine so far.
 
The snow is melting fast and is very mushy during the day and ice hard at night. We will keep grooming unless it rains on us this weekend. If it rains we may be done in the lower parts like Tony Grove and Franklin Basin.

Anyone 17 and younger must wear a helmet when operating or being a passenger on a snowmobile, ATV or motorcycle.
 
Off highway vehicles must be registered before transporting or operating on public roads or land. Registration stickers must be displayed (stuck on the machine) along with the month sticker. Do not carry them in your bag and think that is good enough. It’s not!!! The decals will stick on the tunnel and hood very well if the machine is warm when you stick them on. Placing them on the belly pan will get ripped off when riding in deep snow.
 
Anyone (Utah resident or non-resident) between the age of 8 and 15 must posses Utah Safety Certificate to operate a snowmobile, ATV, or Motorcycle in Utah. To sign up for a classes at www.stateparks.utah.gov
