Grooming Report / Reduced Grooming Runs

Thursday, March 23, 2017

We have hit a heat wave and lots of rain continuing to turning the trails to mush. With the warm temperatures during the day and night, the trail is not setting up at night. Again,this means the first 5 people on the trails, after it’s groomed, will have a nice ride, the rest will need kidney transplants.

Tony Grove Trail is showing pavement on the south facing mountain, so we are calling that trail done for the year.

We are going to start cutting back on our grooming runs from now till April 1. April 1 will be the end of our grooming season.

Beaver Creek Tuesday’s & Saturday’s
Amazon Tuesday’s & Saturday’s
Franklin Basin Thursday’s
Tony Grove Done for the Year
Swan Flat Tuesday’s
Sinks Wednesday’s
Temple Done for the Year
Garden City Done for the Year

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
