Beaver Mountain

We groomed the entire Beaver Mountain trail on Tuesday, January 9.  Snow is 36" deep and powdery on top.  Excellent snowmobiling conditions.

 

City Creek Trailhead:  5" of snow on the level, 2-4" of packed snow on the trail for the first couple of miles up.  UDOT is not plowing the road to the trailhead, so it's a slick drive the last three miles.

Puffer Lake Trailhead:  Road is clear, snow is very deep.  We knocked down the snowbank at the end of the parking lot leaving an nice ramp to access the trail.

Kent's Lake Trailhead:  Road is clear.  Snow is packed very tight for the first few miles do to heavy use.  We took most of the bumps out and now it's good to go.

 

Monroe Mountain

We groomed the entire Monroe Mountain trail on Friday, January 4.  Snow on top is 20-30" deep and powdery.  Use caution on Monroe Mountain where logging operations took place over the fall.  There are numerous trees and limbs buried in the trail, and snow depths are only 12-15".  The trail down the west side into Monrovian Park is bare in some spots, exposed rocks, or packed very tightly.  Ride with caution. 

 

Koosharem Trailhead:  2" of snow on the level, 1-2" of packed snow on the trail.

Monrovian Park Trailhead:  5" of snow on the level, 2-4" of packed snow on the trail.

 

Fishlake to Gooseberry

We groomed this trail on Monday, January 6.  Sno is not very deep across Seven Mile Pass, only about 12".  Use caution when riding off trail.  There is no snow on the forad from Bowery Haven to Johnson's Reservoir.

 

Fishlake Trailhead:  Very little snow for six miles on the highway, with just a few drifts.  We cannot take a snowcat on this section of the trail.

Gooseberry Trailhead:  8" of snow on the level, 4-6" of packed snow on the trail.

 

Sand Ledges

We evaluated this trail on Monday, January 6, and there is currently insufficient snow to groom. 

 

Highway 24 (Sand Ledges) Trailhead:  2-3" of snow on the level 1" of packed snowon the trail, some bare spots.
