Upper Logan Canyon Snowmobile Trail Grooming Status:

The warm day time temperatures are not helping to keep snow at the trailheads/parking lots and the trails that start from those locations.  The most recent storm brought rain to all of our trailhead/parking lot locations.  The conditions we are seeing are typical of late March, early April - The time we normally discontinue trail grooming operations.

THE TRAILS WE GROOMED THIS PAST WEEK:
1/31 - Sinks trail to Temple Flat; Swan Flat Loop trail.
2/1 - Tony Grove and Franklin Basin trails.
2/2 - Swan Flat Loop and Beaver Creek trails.
2/3 - Beaver Creek trail.

We are finding less than marginal snow conditions and are finding several rocks and trees impacting the trails (particularly the Amazon, Beaver Flats, lower Swan Flat, Sinks Valley. The lower Tony Grove and lower Franklin Basin trails do not have much snow on the trail).

We still need more snow and the 7 day outlook is not very positive for new snow nor temperatures.  If we continue to get more snow, we will move out of our marginal grooming status.

THE TRAILS WE PLAN TO GROOM THIS WEEK (if we get good snow from this evening's storm):
2/7 - Sinks trail to upper Log Cabin Hollow.
2/8 - Tony Grove and Franklin Basin trails.
2/9 - Swan Flat Loop, Amazon and Beaver Creek trails.
2/10 - Amazon and Beaver Creek trails.

If we do not get good snow from this evening's storm:
2/8 - Sinks trail to upper Log Cabin Hollow.
2/9 - Swam Flat Loop and Beaver Creek trails.

BE AWARE - BE SAFE - Logging operations are happening in the Beaver Creek area throughout the winter. Logging trucks may be encountered on the snowmobile trail near and north of the Upper Beaver Creek parking lot.
