Grooming Report

Thursday, March 20, 2014
 
We are in the spring riding conditions with mushy snow in the lower elevations and lots of new snow in the upper elevations. As the temperature warm up, we will evaluate our grooming runs on a daily basis. We have scaled back our grooming runs to only grooming the trails once a week. 
 
The trail was extremely bumpy as I was trying to cut the bumps out of Franklin Basin, when the lift frame on the front blade broke in half. I turned around and went back to the parking lot, so I was only able to kind of smooth out the first 3 miles of the trail. Sorry
 
We have someone coming up to weld it back together tomorrow morning, so we should be able to groom Swan and Beaver Creek Friday night 3-21-14
 
 
Trails have been groomed on:
Beaver Creek 3/18
Amazon          3/18

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
