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.

Grooming report for 12/30/14

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. 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.

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!!!

Grooming update 4/4/2014 last grooming of season

Grooming update for Mirror Lake /Mill Hollow 4/4/2014

As of April 4, 2014, we had received about one feet of new snow on top. On top there is about four to five feet of snow with fair to poor amounts at the trailheads.  The trails are in good shape the warm weather is starting to be a challenge for us to keep the lower levels smooth.  Thursday Soapstone, Cold Springs, Wolf Creek to the Nobblets parking area and up Mill hollow to Duchesne ridge were groomed. Our grooming season is at an end. The best trailhead with the best snow and access is going to be Soapstone. The highway 35 is lacking on snow at the lower levels. The trails may get bumpy but there is still some good spring type riding to be had on the tops of all the mountains. Watch out for danger while riding. The Avalanche danger is still High. Make sure you are wearing a beacon. Ride safe and enjoy the snow. Our grooming is ended for this season.

You can find a copy of our grooming schedule on this website at http://www.snowut.com that you can print out. Remember that all our runs are done at night but we may be on the trail at any time so ride under control at all times.

 

 Remember to go out prepared including survival and avalanche gear. Check on the avalanche conditions by going to www.avalanche.org  Ride safe and we will see you on the trails!!!

Grooming update for Mirror Lake /Mill Hollow 3/24/2014

As of March 24, 2014, we had received about two inches of new snow on top and are hoping the weather gives us more new snow as the week goes on.  On top there is about four to five feet of snow with low amounts at the trailheads.  The trails are in good shape the warm weather is starting to be a challenge for us to keep the lower levels smooth. Our grooming is going to be complete for the season on or around April 1.   Monday Soapstone, Cold Springs, and Wolf Creek to the Nobblets parking area were groomed. Thursday Mirror Lake highway to Mirror Lake is scheduled to be groomed. Friday the Mill Hollow to Lake Creek trailhead will be groomed. Our weekend grooming will depend on the snow at the lower levels.    Watch out for danger while riding. The Avalanche danger is still moderate. Make sure you are wearing a beacon. Ride safe and enjoy the snow.

You can find a copy of our grooming schedule on this website at http://www.snowut.com that you can print out. Remember that all our runs are done at night but we may be on the trail at any time so ride under control at all times.
