 Snowcat down again.

Friday, January 18, 2013


On Wednesday 1/16, I was able to groom the Amazon, Beaver Creek, and Franklin Basin.  On Thursday night 1/18 while Jeremy was grooming the sinks trail the right track on the snowcat stopped moving.  He was crossing the highway in the sinks when this occurred, so he was able, with the help of UDOT, tow the snowcat back to the shed on the highway.  The shop is bringing us a different snowcat tomorrow, so we will not be able to groom tonight. 


No new snow to report either.

The Top 3 violations in Logan Canyon


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
