Grooming Update for February 1st, 2013

   **red asterisks indicate most recent grooming activity**

 

**Jan 31 - Our snow cat trailer developed mechanical problems on our way to groom Beaver Thursday afternoon.  We should have it back on the road hopefully by Monday February 4th, 2013**

        

Beaver 

 

We will groom Beaver tonight.

We groomed City Creek to Kent’s Lake, to Puffer Lake and back down City Creek Canyon Wednesday night the 23rd.

 

Various parts of the Kent’s Lake and Puffer Lake trails had maybe 1-2” of snow since last week.  With the warmer temperatures and snow is settling and getting heavier – there’s a little powder on top.

 

Up top on Big Flat we took care of several big snow drifts, leveled and groomed the trails.  This area appears to be the best area for snowmobiling until we get more new snow on the other trails.  All three sections are in excellent condition.

 

Lots of snowmobile activity up on top and on the Kent’s Lake side last week – it appears that a lot of people re taking advantage of the great snow and terrain – looks like a lot of fun.

 

With lots of fresh snow on the way this and next weekend should make for some great outdoor activities – be careful and have fun.

 

Monroe Mountain: groomed Monday night Jan 28th

We groomed Monroe Mountain trail Monday night, January 28th from Koosharem Trailhead to Big Lake, PST 44 and down to Monrovian Park.  There is 6-12” new snow all along the trails with about 30”+ on top.  There is a lot of fresh snow on all trails.  Almost all the trees left behind on the trail by the loggers are now covered by the fresh snow but I would still recommend caution while riding through there – there are still a few protruding out into the trail – please be careful. 

 

Koosharem Trailhead:  4-6" of snow on the level, 6-8" of packed snow on the trail.  There are no bare spots in the trail.

Monrovian Park Trailhead:  5-6" of snow at the trail head, 4-6" of packed snow on the trail.

 

Fish Lake to Gooseberry

We groomed this trail on Wednesday night January 30th.  Tons of new snow more than covered all of the bare spots along the trail.  With snow depth reports indicating 18 plus inches in some areas there is at least 24” of new snow in several areas along the trail.

There were endless drifts covering the trail for several miles.  It took several passes on several sections to level the trails – there will be several more drifts on the trails by the time you get up there – please be careful and ride with caution.

 

I was only able to make it within a mile or so of the Mt Terrell Ranger Station coming in from the Gooseberry Trailhead.  The fog was soo thick it made it impossible to see two feet in front of the snow cat.  Blowing snow sticking to the snow poles made them invisible and impossible to see. 

 

Snow reports indicate over one foot of new snow at Fish Lake – ride Seven Mile Canyon with caution as we were unable to groom that section of trail.

 

Overall with all of the new snow I would say you are in for some great riding – just be safe.

 

Fish Lake Trailhead:  Due to extreme fog I was unable to make it to Fish Lake – be careful.

 

Gooseberry Trailhead:  10” at the trail head and groomed all the way.  As usual UDOT is doing a great job keeping Gooseberry Road cleared all the way to the trail head.

 

Sand Ledges

There is a new section of trail that we have not yet groomed.  We will keep you posted.

 

Highway 24 (Sand Ledges) Trailhead:  2-3" of snow on the level 1" of packed snow on the trail, some bare spots.

Fish Lake to Gooseberry

We groomed this trail on Tuesday night January 22nd.  My apology for leaving the trail in the condition I did last week due to snow cat having mechanical issues – thank you Utah State Parks and Recreation maintenance garage for the phone fix – the cat was up and fully operational the very next day.  Snow is very sparse across Seven Mile Pass, less than 12" and bare in several spots just pass the opening of the canyon.  Use caution when riding off trail.  There is little to no snow on the road from Bowery Haven to Johnson's Reservoir.  The snow improves greatly less than 1.5 miles up the canyon.

 

We took extra time last night on the Gooseberry side of the trail making sure the trail was in perfect condition for your riding pleasures – have a great time riding this area and be careful as always.

 

Fish Lake Trailhead:  Very little snow for six miles on the highway, with just a few drifts.  We cannot take a snow cat on this section of the trail.

Gooseberry Trailhead:  8" of snow on the level, 4-6" of packed snow on the trail.  Once on top there is plenty of  snow for riding pleasures.
