Grooming Report 12/19/13

Good new! We have started grooming the Soapstone, Cold springs, and Mirror Lake Hwy. The bad news is that they continue to plow Hwy 35, Wolf Creek Hwy, which prevents us from grooming the Mill Hollow and Lake Creek areas of our complex. We will start grooming those areas when they stop plowing Hwy 35. You can access the Mill Hollow and Wolf Creek areas by parking on the shoulder of the road but it is very limited as there is no parking.

Grooming Report for 12/11/13

We have not started grooming yet but we are scheduled to start on Wednesday December 18th. There is about 18" of snow at the trailheads and 3-4 feet up high. The avalanche danger is high especially in the Uinta's with a weak layer at ground level. please be careful! We will up date this as we start grooming. Thanks

Grooming Report for 11/26/13

Well winter is trying to get going with some good early season snow. Just keep doing the snow dance as we need a lot more snow before we consider grooming. Mirror Lake Hwy is not being plowed any more so you can drive up to the snow and unload. Hwy 35 is still being plowed so you can drive to the summit and unload there. conditions are still early season with lots of rocks, logs, etc. just waiting to put your sled in the shop for repairs and possibly you for repairs as well so be careful! We are hoping to start grooming by Mid-December but that depends on the snow. Remember to always go out prepared to spend the night just in case! Early season snow is susceptible to avalanche as well so play it safe. We will update this once we start grooming.

Grooming Report for 3/28/13

We are wrapping up our grooming season. First off the trailheads are becoming bare with lots of dirt and asphalt showing. Secondly the very warm temperatures make for difficult grooming, and thirdly you should be camping and fishing at Rockport, hanging out with the awesome Rangers!! We did groom the entire complex yesterday, today, and tomorrow but after that we are done. We did move our snowcat from the snowcat shed to Soapstone and managed to squeeze out a couple more weeks. This goes to show you how dedicated we are as most people would just throw in the towel as running out of Soapstone is a challenge with no warm building, hauling fuel, and hiking into the snowcat. Have a great safe summer and be sure to visit Rockport for some great camping and water recreation!

Grooming report 3/4/12

A few small storms this weekend put down about 6-8 inches of new snow and riding conditions are pretty good with about 5 feet of total snow. We have been on schedule for grooming and the trails are in great condition. We had several snowmobile accidents recently and most were due to operator error. Please be carefule especially in low light conditions when hazards are hard to see. Several storms are scheduled for this weekend so please be safe.

Grooming Report for 2/12/13

Grooming continues full speed with no problems. We changed up our schedule a little so we can put the mogul master on tomorrow and hit the Mill Hollow area on Thursday, Friday, and Saturday. The trail is in good shape but the mogul master will get it in awesome shape. We groomed Mirror Lake on Monday and today we groomed the Soapstone, Cold Springs, and Wolf Creek areas. There is some pretty decent new snow and conditions are getting better especially in the trees. As always please check the avalanche forecast before heading out. Remember if you are riding a trail with limited visibilty please slow down. Alot of other users are on the trail including skiers, dog sledders, and our snowcat. Whenever you are passing other users, please slow down. I had several complaints last week about sledders riding past skiers at a high rate of speed. Please slow down!
