Grooming Report

Thursday, January 30, 2014
 
We are finally getting some much needed new snow in the canyon today. We started scaling back our grooming runs at the first of the week, because we could not groom icy trails. Wednesday night the new snow was very wet and heavy, making it hard to use the front blade with the snowballs piling up in the blade.
 
Trails have been groomed on:
Beaver Creek 1/29
Amazon          1/29
Franklin Basin 1/28
Tony Grove     1/23
Swan Flat        1/24
Sinks               1/20
Temple            1/20
Garden City     Done until we get more snow. The tunnel is full of snow and is now closed.
 
Trails scheduled to be groomed on:
Beaver Creek 1/31
Amazon          1/31
Franklin Basin 1/31
Tony Grove     1/31
Swan Flat        1/31
Sinks               2/1
Temple            2/27
Garden City     Done until we get more snow. The tunnel is full of snow and is now closed.

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 www.stateparks.utah.gov
