Fish Lake Complex Grooming Report January 9, 2014

We are like most of Southern Utah and are anxiously awaiting snow so that grooming operations may continue. All of our trailheads have insufficient snow for a snow cat to travel on. On Beaver Mountain, the road coming out of City Creek by Junction has many bare spots. The road out of Koosharem to go on Monroe Mountain is very similar. The other day while checking trailheads, I discovered that the road from the Johnson Reservoir area up Seven Mile Canyon towards Gooseberry had zero snow on it all the way to Cold Springs Road just past the Mt. Terrill Guard Station. Apparently, somebody has been plowing this road for logging trucks to travel on. While in the area, I talked to four sledders who had gone from the turnoff at Cold Springs down towards Sand Ledges. I asked them what the conditions were like and they told me that the snow was terrible and that they were turning up dirt and hitting rocks everywhere they went. As soon as we get enough snow for the snow cat to travel on, grooming operations will resume. Thank you for your patience.
