All the trails have been groomed this past week. The Nobblets and Mill Hollow trail have become pretty bumpy. Tonight we will be putting on the "Mogul Master" in order to knock down all the bumps.
We will groom Soapstone to Hwy 35 then down to the Nobblets Trail head. Then we will go over Mill Hollow. This should knock everything down and leave a nice smooth trail for you to ride before you go and watch the Super Bowl.

Grooming report 01/29/2016

As of 1/29/2016 the following trails have been groomed.
Cold Springs
Soapstone
Hwy 150 to Mirror Lake
Nobblets TH to the Hanna TH
Mill Hollow to Duchesne Ridge.

There have been strong winds in the higher elevations causing the trails to be wind blown and covered. Bad for the trails and avalanche conditions but good for powder in the high country.
The last storm only dropped 4-6 inches at the summit.


Always remember to check for avalanche conditions before you go out. Here is the link for the Uintas.

Grooming report of Jan 15, 2016

We are currently up to date with all of our grooming runs and we have added another run for your smooth riding convenience. Grooming runs are as follows.

Monday- Cold Springs to the Hanna TH

Wednesday- Mirror Lake HWY to Mirror Lake

Thursday- HWY 35 from the Nobblets TH to the Wolf Creek Summit

Friday- Mill Hollow to the Lake Creek Summit

Saturday- Mill Hollow to the Lake Creek TH

While the trails are well maintained Mother Nature has not shown us her full furry yet. On Thursday there were white out conditions at and above 8000 feet due to strong winds and blowing snow. This is causing wind drifted trails at the higher elevations. This will also cause wind loaded hills so be care and make sure to always check the snow conditions before you go out!!
The storm only put down a couple inches on top at best.

Grooming Report for January 1, 2016

Well Mother Nature is doing what seems like normal anymore, teasing us with a big dump of snow and then an extended dry spell! What happened to the awesome Utah winters!! There is about 3 feet of snow at the higher elevations and 1 foot at the trailheads. There is some snow forecasted for the next five days but I am not counting on much accumulation being the pessimist that I am. It is still a big gamble to venture off the trails with lots of hidden obstacles waiting to empty you wallet at the repair shop. The good news is that the trails are in great shape and we are on a full schedule. Please dress appropriately and take all you survival gear with you in case something unexpected happens and you have to spend the night on the mountain. It could either be a life and death situation or a fun story to tell you friends and family! Please check the avalanche conditions before heading out, some big slide have been seen in the area. Go to https://utahavalanchecenter.org/ for the most current conditions. Please abide by all rules and regulations to ensure a pleasant visit with a Park Ranger.

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.
