This last storm gave us a lot of new snow in the canyon, giving us about 12 to 14 inches of total snow depth at the parking lots. We need at least 18 to 24 inches to safely take the snowcat out to start our runs. Where Tony Grove is a paved road, there is enough snow to start packing that trail down.
We are hoping this next storm that is coming in around Christmas Eve will give us the snow we need to get going. We have planned to start packing all of our trails starting on the 26th of December.
Here is what we are planning to do if we get another six inches out of this next storm.
Plan to groom on:
Amazon 12/26, 12/29, 12/31
Beaver Creek 12/26, 12/29, 12/31
Franklin Basin 12/27, 12/31
Garden City 12/28 Clean out tunnel and see how far we can get down.
Tony Grove 12/27, 12/31
Sinks Trail 12/28, 12/30
Swan flat 12/26, 12/29
Temple 12/28, 12/30
Out of State Snowmobile Permits are being sold at the following locations:
Bear Lake State Park – Marina

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
