03/06 Friday: Mud Creek and Clyde Creek

With new snow that we recived we will be grooming as much as we can. Last week we recived about 15"-24" in the higer elevations. Lower elevations are still pretty thin. The trail from CO-OP to the Cylde Creek Parking lot is very thin and we are unable to groom it.

We will be grooming CO-OP Strawberry River and Lake Creek down to the Forest Service Boundary. The snow is melting quickly on the lake creek road. You can no longer use the lake creek trail head. You have to drive about a mile past the trail head to unload. There are 4 cones, Stop sign and no wheeled vehicles over 800 LBS sign on the lake creek road 1 mile from the trail head. Please no vehicle beyond his point. 

 

Pray for snow.


Avalanche danger is higher than normal. Please be aware of north and north eastern slopes.

 

Make sure your sleds are properly equipped for the season, REGISTERED and decals are displayed properly.  Be sure to put a copy of the registration somewhere on your sled while you operate and transport them.

You can find a copy of our grooming schedule at Snowut. Remember that our runs are done at during the day and night so we may be on the trail at any time so ride under control at all times.

 

Always make sure you are aware of the Avalanche danger.  Make sure you are wearing a beacon at all times. Remember to go out prepared including survival and avalanche gear. Check on the avalanche conditions by going to Utah Avalanche Center or Avalanche.
