Snowcat Down Again

 Snowcat Down Again

 Monday, January 07, 2013


We have been really struggling this year with keeping our snowcat running.  We have broken down on about every run we have attempted to do this year. Here is the latest problem:


Bear Lake's snow cat is down again. Last night it left Daniel stranded 12.3 miles south of the snow cat shed on the Sinks trail. A big THANKS to Jeremy for going and getting Daniel back to a warm home.


Another THANK YOU to Art and Dave for coming up to help me bring it back to the shed and for determining what is going on with the snow cat.


Art and Dave brought up to new alternator belts and put them on and I was able to drive the cat back to the shed. At the shed, they looked and worked on the cat and it appears they determined there is a small leak in the hydraulic cooler. And with the leak, hydraulic oil was being blown back on the engine, including the alternator belts. They removed the radiator and hydraulic cooler and took them to Salt Lake for repairs or replacement.

The earliest the snow cat will be up and running will be late Wednesday afternoon. They'll know more tomorrow if they will be able to meet that time frame.

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

The snowcat sounds like a piece of junk. What are the plans to replace it? Snowmobilers continue to be harassed every weekend in the parking lots by local law enforcement from every agency about making sure we are licensed and legal to ride our sleds. We are told that licensing fees go toward grooming and maintenance costs (especially our out of state friends that pay for their non-resident license), yet every week it seems like the snowcat is broken and in need of serious repairs. Is it old? Does it get overhauled and maintained during the summer? A privately owned ski resort would be out of business with a snowcat as reliable as this one. I do know they are very costly, I know it has to be planned and budgeted for, lets make it happen.

I will also like to say that most people that find themselves without having health insurance usually are students, self-employed and those that are laid-off. More than half from the uninsured are under the age of Thirty-five. They do not really feel they are requiring health insurance since they are young and also healthy.
