Grooming Report for 2/3/14

It looks like Mother Nature is finally going to give us some white stuff. Several storms this week will give us much needed snow. Hopefully they will hold together and put down not inches of snow, but FEET of snow. Trial Lake is showing about 43” of snow so we need more. If you don’t visit the Utah avalanche website, please check it out. Look at some of the recent avalanches to educate yourself about the consequences of triggering an avalanche. Some of them recently had crowns that we 20’ deep!! That is a huge slide and probably not survivable. Please ride safe and do the snow dance!
 
Avalanche conditions are as follows: 
 
We have two distinctly different avalanche dragons today resulting in very different outcomes-
Manageable- fresh wind drifts in the wind zone where a MODERATE avalanche danger exists and human triggered avalanches are possible on steep, wind drifted slopes..
Not manageable- any avalanche that breaks to old snow near the ground. A scary MODERATE avalanche danger is found on steep, rocky, upper elevation slopes, particularly those facing the north half of the compass. Once triggered, avalanches have the possibility to break deep and wide, creating a dangerous avalanche.
Wind sheltered mid and low elevation terrain offers a LOW avalanche danger.
 
Our Schedule this week will be: 
Tuesday- Soapstone, Cold Springs
Thursday- Hwy 150 from Soapstone to Mirror Lake
Friday and Saturday- Soapstone, Hwy 35 from Soapstone to Mill Hollow, Mill Hollow, Lake Creek 
Remember to ride safe and be prepared for all conditions. Day time temperatures may be in the 40s but drop well into single digits at night so always carry your survival gear. Be Safe.

SR35 Plowing

We are aware of SR35 being plowed by UDOT and are working with Utah State Park officials in an effort to resolve the situation.  Check back here often for updates. 

 

January 6 Update - Through communication with State Parks, USA was informed tonight that there will be no more winter maintenance on SR35 performed by UDOT for the season. However, the gates will remain open until there is significant snowfall to close them. State Parks and UDOT have a meeting scheduled for mid-week to discuss how this situation will be better handled in the future when there are low snow conditions early on in the season. Further USA involvement will be decided pending the outcome of the mid-week meeting.

 

January 10 Update - SR35 is officially closed for the winter and Utah State Parks will start grooming operations tonight.

January 3, 2014

Yesterday we groomed up CO-OP Creek to Tower and Mountain and back.  Not much snow at lower elevation, more as you get higher up.  No base to what is there at the higher elevations.  Sugary snow.  Be careful when you leave the trail for rock and vegetation.  Going to do the same run tomorrow night if all goes well.  Will try and go down Lake creek as far as we can go.  Monday we will try and do this run again but will attempt to get to the Strawberry River Trail Head.  We will update after each run.  Still need more snow at lower elevation to do Clyde Creek, Mud Creek and Indian Creek area.

Snow conditions at Strawberry has not allowed us to start grooming as of today.  There is approximately 6 to 8 inches at the highway 40 elevation.  There is more snow at higher elevations however the reports have snow depths varying.  Any riding off of the marked trails could be hazardous due to the lack of snow.  CO-OP, Clyde Creek and Strawberry River trail heads have been plowed.  Chicken Creek East, The Ladders and Mud Creek trail heads have been plowed for fisherman access.

Snow report for 12/4/13

This latest storm has brought our snow depth to over 30 inches at Trial Lake and the Mill Hollow areas. The gates are closed on Hwy 150 so you can ride from there either up Mirror Lake or Soapstone. They are still plowing Hwy 35 so you can drive to the bottom of Mill Hollow or to the Wolf Creek Summit. Trail riding is still the safe way to ensure a safe day on the mountain. If you do venture out use extreme caution. Avalanche danger is high so please go out prepared. We have not started grooming yet and will not likely start until mid-December. Be safe.
