We still need more snow to start grooming

Friday, December 19, 2014

Our new snowcat arrived last Monday December 8, 2014 and is sitting in our shed waiting for enough snow to start grooming trails. We need at least another 6 to 12 inches of snow to start grooming Franklin Basin, Beaver Creek, and Swan Flat. Tony grove still is pavement at the beginning of the trial. Monday, after these next series of storms come though, we will assess the snow conditions on the trials and possibly start packing trails.

Trails scheduled to be groomed on:

Beaver Creek
Franklin Basin
Tony Grove
Swan Flat
Garden City

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
