Pray for snow.
Above treeline we have a MODERATE avalanche danger and human triggered avalanches are possible. Be suspicious of any steep terrain with recent deposits of wind drifted snow. Any avalanche that fails on weak, sugary snow near the ground, has the potential to break deeper and wider than you might expect.
Low to mid elevation, wind sheltered terrain you will find a LOW avalanche danger. The best and safest riding conditions will be lower angle, mid elevation , sheltered terrain, that faces the north half of the compass.
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.
Anyone (Utah resident or non-resident) between the age of 8 and 15 must possess Utah Safety Certificate to operate a snowmobile, ATV, or Motorcycle in Utah. To sign up for a classes at www.stateparks.utah.gov/ohv

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.
ALWAYS make sure you let someone know where you will be riding and when you will return.
Ride safe and enjoy the snow and we will see you on the trails!!!
