Grooming report for 12/26/15

Mother Nature finally gave us some much needed snow! About 3' of new snow in the higher elevations. While this may seem like a good thing there are several negatives that go with the new white stuff. First off don't let the 3' of snow fool you! There are also 3' stumps, rocks, etc. and I say numerous snowmobiles being dragged off the mountain today. The other is the avalanche conditions. 3' of new snow on top of old crappy snow means trouble and I observed numerous natural slides. If you choose to play in avalanche terrain you may pay the price. Let things settle down for a while and wait for that next great dump which will change the conditions. The last bad news is that we were unable to get out grooming due to the extreme conditions, blizzard to say the least. OK, now the good news. Hwy 35 is closed and we made our first grooming run up Mill Hollow tonight and will make another run on Sunday night to catch up. For the rest of the week we will be on schedule which is as follows.

Wednesday- Mirror Lake Hwy

Thursday- Soapstone, Cold Spirings

Friday and Saturday -Soapstone, Mill Hollow, Lake Creek

 

BE SAFE, TOO EARLY IN THE SEASON FOR A SEASON ENDING EVENT!!

Grooming Report for 12/19/15

We have begun grooming on a limited basis as Hwy 35 is still open. We will be grooming the Mirror Lake Hwy and Soapstone/ Cold Springs area for the next week or so. They are no longer plowing Hwy 35 but we need snow to cover the Road. We will put out a new grooming schedule soon. Thanks

End of grooming

Due to little to no snow we have terminated grooming operations for the year. Hwy 35 is open and you can drive to the Mill Hollow area and ride from there. You can still ride out of Soapstone and the gates will be open soon. Not a great year for grooming.

Grooming report for 02/17/15

Sorry for not updating the report but it would pretty much say this winter BLOWS!. The few storms we have gotten have only put down a few inches of snow over a very hard crust. Some great riding can be found on north facing slopes and there are very few sleds out. The gates at Noblett's are open and you can drive to Mill Hollow. The gates at Soapstone are closed but there is still snow. We are still grooming but we may not be able to groom Mill Hollow much longer if we lose much more snow off of Hwy 35.

Grooming report for 1/15/15

This last series of storms did not put down as much snow as I had hoped in the Mirror Lake/ Mill Hollow areas, only about 6-8” of the white stuff. Still very good conditions for some off trail riding. Today I groomed all of Soapstone, Cold Springs, Hwy 35, and up to Mill Hollow. The trails are in excellent condition. The bad news is the snow cat broke down so we may miss tomorrows run but should not be a problem since the trails are in good shape. Hopefully we will be back on schedule by Saturday. Remember to check out the avalanche conditions at http://utahavalanchecenter.org/ before venturing out. Please ride safe and return home to your family, be prepared with all the proper survival gear. Register your snowmobile as the funds pay for the grooming program which is a very expensive project. Our snow cat may be on the trails at any time so please use caution. Our typical grooming schedule will be as follows: Subject to change for weather or repairs.
 
Friday and Saturday- Soapstone, Mill Hollow, Lake Creek Trail Head.
Monday- Mirror Lake
Thursday- Soapstone, Cold Springs, Hwy 35

Good news! Hwy 35 is officially closed and we will start grooming it tomorrow. I know the Mill Hollow area is very bumpy. There is also a lot of snow with about 50" up high. Still be careful as there is no base and there are still lots of stumps out there waiting to get you. We will be grooming Soapstone and Mill Hollow Tomorrow and then get on our regular schedule.

Grooming Report for 12/24/14

We finally have enough snow to start grooming. Today I groomed the Soapstone trail and snow depths were respectable with about 2-3 feet of snow. Riding was better than I anticipated. We will start grooming on a limited basis until we get more snow and they close Hwy 35 which may be soon. We will groom on Friday and Saturday this weekend in the Soapstone, Cold Springs, and Mirror Lake areas.

No grooming report for 12/11/14

As of 12/11/14 we do not have enough snow to start grooming. Hopefully we will get some storms soon so we can start before Christmas. There is about 2' of snow up high so I would stick to the trails for now. Hwy 150 is closed but Hwy 35 remains open. Do the snow dance!!!
