Grooming update for Mirror Lake /Mill Hollow 1/9/2014

As of January 9, 2014, we had received some good new snow with the past few storms and are hoping the weather gives us more.  Due to lower snow totals, we are not doing all our grooming runs yet.  On top there is about three to four feet of snow with fair amounts at the trailheads. We received over ten inches or more so far from the storms.  The trails are in good shape.  Tuesday: Soapstone over to HWY 35 was groomed. The Cold Springs Loop was groomed from HWY 35 the top of Wolf Creek to Soapstone summit. Due to low snow levels on the road we could not go any further down to Hanna.  The Mirror Lake Highway up to Mirror Lake was groomed on Thursday. The mill hollow up to lake creek summit was groomed today.  Both groomers reported blizzard like conditions on top.  As of right now UDOT has stopped plowing highway 35. They have stated it is closed. It may be passable by a vehicle, but it is a use at your own risk condition. There are no plowed pull offs for parking or for turning trailers around.  When the snow is over a foot on the road grooming may resume on highway 35. We will keep you updated with information as we get it. Watch out for danger while riding. The Avalanche danger is still high. Make sure you are wearing a beacon. Ride safe and enjoy the snow.

You can find a copy of our grooming schedule on this website at http://www.snowut.com that you can print out. Remember that all our runs are done at night but we may be on the trail at any time so ride under control at all times.

 

 Remember to go out prepared including survival and avalanche gear. Check on the avalanche conditions by going to www.avalanche.org  Ride safe and we will see you on the trails!!!
