Heads up... the avalanche danger is higher on the south half of the range from Trial Lake to Currant Creek to Daniels.
On steep upper elevation slopes, particularly in the wind zone, the avalanche danger is MODERATE today. Human triggered avalanches are POSSIBLE, especially on all steep, wind drifted slopes. Once triggered, today's avalanches have the potential to break deeper and wider than you might expect.
Lose a little elevation and you lose the problem. Wind sheltered terrain and most south facing slopes offer generally LOW avalanche danger.
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. Sign up for a classes at www.stateparks.utah.gov/ohv
Remember No Wheeled Vehicles Over 800 LBS on any of the groomed trails in Utah.

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 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!!!
