We have started grooming and completing some packing runs this week. There is three to four feet of snow in the higher elevations now with more storms on the way.

We are trying to get use to our new snowcat, train new operators, and work out the small bugs. You may find some mistakes in the trails, but we will get better.

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 http://www.stateparks.utah.gov
