It's that time of year when the snow conditions are such that we just can't groom any more. I was hoping that we would be able to stretch it a bit longer, but there just isn't enough on the lower areas to get us up to the high areas. So, I regret to say we are now finished for the season.
We had a great grooming team this year with some good volunteers,and they all worked hard to give you a good riding area. I hope you enjoyed your time in the back country.
If you should still find yourself venturing out, please, please be careful and wear all your protective gear. That includes a beacon.
If you have any questions for us, feel free to drop us a line.
It has been a pleasure serving as your Utah State Parks Chalk Creek Snowmobile Complex grooming team.
Have a great spring and summer, hope to see you next smowmobile season.

The Top 3 violations in Chalk Creek Area.
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, 2013 single sticker on the left side of 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 possess Utah Safety Certificate to operate a snowmobile, ATV, or Motorcycle in Utah. To sign up for a classes at www.stateparks.utah.gov/ohv
