Grooming Report March 1st, 2013

All three trails are in excellent condition with probably the best snow conditions in the last several years including the grooming of Sand Ledges.

 

**Beaver Mountain**

We groomed the Beaver Mountain Thursday night the 28th.  There have been several inches of fresh snow added since we groomed last Saturday night.   We groomed from the City Creek Canyon Trailhead in Junction to Kent’s Lake, back up and across Big Flat and down to the Puffer Lake trailhead.  While at the trailhead we took down the huge pile of snow that the road crew piles up in front of the trail every time they plow.

 

These trails are in excellent condition and should provide great snowmobiling for everyone regardless of your snow condition preferences and level of ability.  Snowmobiling should be great for all riders this weekend – Be safe.

   

With some recent snow storms and settling the snow is 49" deep up on Big Flat.  Check out the latest Snow-Tel Information:  Big Flat

 

City Creek Trailhead:  6" 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.  Thursday night you could drive your vehicle all the way to the trailhead.

Puffer Lake Trailhead:  Road is clear, snow is very deep.  

Kent's Lake Trailhead:  Road is clear.  Snow is packed very tight all the way to the top due 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 Tuesday February 26th from the Koosharem Trailhead to Big Lake, down Hunters Flat, across PST 44 and down to Monrovian Park.  For the most part most all of the trees left behind on the trail by the loggers are under the snow – a few are still protruding so I would still keep my eyes open while riding through these areas. 

 

There are just a few spots in the trail with little to no snow but the recent storms have done a good job covering most of the bare spots – only a couple and mostly on the corners.  The recent storms have left you with some excellent snowmobiling conditions.  There were no bare spots coming down the face of Monroe Mountain to Monrovian Park.

 

Once again I spent the extra time and fuel doing another courtesy run down Hunters Flat – we are trying to keep this area as nice as possible when conditions permit.

 

There is anywhere from 12-24” of fresh snow around the area of the Koosharem Guard Station and down to Big Lake – lots of fresh snow and deep powder on PST 44 from the guard station over to Monroe Mountain Road.

 

The conditions on Monroe Mountain and the trails leading there are great for snowmobiling – get out there and enjoy the fresh snow!!

 

Koosharem Trailhead:  no snow at the trail head and 3-4" of packed snow on the trail with roughly 30” on top.

Monrovian Park Trailhead:  5" of snow on the level, 4-6" of packed snow on the trail.

Fishlake to Gooseberry

 

We groomed this trail Wednesday late afternoon February 27th.  There was over 12” of new snow and well over that near the Mt Terrell Guard Station.  Once again we spent extra time working on snow drifts from Gooseberry all the way including Seven Mile Canyon.  It appears that the huge drifts in Seven Mile Canyon had blocked off travel but it is once again opened back up.

 

From the top of Seven Mile Canyon to a mile or so south of the Mt Terrell Guard Station there’s over a foot of snow with about 6” new.  Once off the main trail the sagebrush and rocks are still exposed – once you’ve made it to the guard station there is plenty of snow and some great riding.

 

 

Fishlake Trailhead:  There is fresh snow on pavement on the Fish Lake HWY from Seven Mile Canyon but the tracks on the cat dig through it and contact the pavement – the snow cat does not like pavement, dirt and rocks.

Gooseberry Trailhead:  up to 12" of snow on the level, 18-24" of packed snow on the trail.

Sand Ledges

We groomed our new path down Sand Ledges last night for the first time.  The new path goes around the avalanche area making it a “new trail” that’s worth checking out.  There is up to 4 feet of snow on the new bypass.  It’s going to take another trip or two to give this new section a nice base to travel on.

 

We took one of our State Park trucks up to the trailhead yesterday and plowed the parking lot for easier access with your trucks and trailers.  Sand Ledges is now opened all the way and ready for some use  - hope you enjoy it.

 

Highway 24 (Sand Ledges) Trailhead:  4" of snow on the level 8+" of packed snow on the lower section of the trail.

 

How’s our grooming??  Please leave comments and suggestions at: 435-624-3268
