Grooming Report

Thursday, January 12, 2017

We have been getting pounded with snow, waiting for parts to show up to get the cat running, and avalanches in Logan Canyon. It is now open and we have been able to groom all the trails but the Garden City Trail. Not sure, if you come up the Garden City Trail, how you will cross the road due to a 8 foot wall of snow at the summit from where the UDOT snow blower cut the snow back? The tunnel is full of snow too.

There is two feet of new snow in the lower elevations and double that up high, so be very careful out there

Beaver Creek Tuesday’s, Friday’s & Saturday’s
Amazon Tuesday’s, Friday’s & Saturday’s
Franklin Basin Monday’s & Thursday’s
Tony Grove Monday’s & Thursday’s
Swan Flat Tuesday’s, Friday’s
Sinks Sunday’s and Wednesday’s
Temple Sunday’s
Garden City Every other Friday’s

I will let you know if there are any deviations in this schedule!

If you see any vehicles up on the snowmobile trails, please take a picture of the vehicle and license plate, email it to the address listed, and we will follow up. Utah code 41-22-12.1 does not allow any wheeled vehicle over 800 to be on a groomed snowmobile trail. The fine is close to $500.00.

Out of State Snowmobile Permits are being sold at the following locations:

The Bears Den/Texaco Gas Station – Intersection of US 89 and US 30
25 North Bear Lake Blvd
Garden City, UT 84028

Bear Lake State Park – Marina Office

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. 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 www.stateparks.utah.gov
