All runs have been completed.
The snow is really compacting with these warmer temps. At the top of Highway 35 you can now see the reflective tape on the delineator posts. There is still plenty of snow at the trailheads. Approximately 2'
With the warm days and riding on soft snow it is creating a lot of whoops. We are planning on putting on the mogule master next week to knock down all of these whoops for your riding convenience.

Wet and Heavy are the two words I would use to describe the conditions right now. There is roughly 2' of new snow but it is wet and heavy. Last night at 10,000' it was 45 degrees. Not the greatest conditions for powder.
Make sure to check avalanche conditions before venturing out.
All the runs are being done on schedule.

CAUTION:
Be careful on the Highways. The delineator posts are starting to show once again. There are also random fences, T-posts, and stumps on the forest, if you see a bump in the snow try and avoid it.

Sunny Days!!
With the recent sunny days our crew has been able to go out and clean up the trails.
We were finally able to clean up Highway 35 down to the Hanna trail head and widen the Cold Springs loop.
Due to incoming weather we moved the Thursday run to Tuesday. All other runs will stay the same.

Lots of new, wet, heavy snow is falling! Before you go out make sure to check the avalanche conditions!!
This week the only change to the schedule is the Mirror Lake Run will be done on Tuesday the 10th instead of Wednesday the 11th.
This week we had 2 snowmobiles go through the ice at Mill Hollow reservoir. Remember the ice is not thick at the inlet and the grate at the dam. Be Careful, I also noticed that the delineator posts on highway 35 are only sticking out of the snow a couple of inches. This storm has the potential to partially bury them. Again please be careful out there!

We finally have a base!! As of 12/30/2016 the snow is AWESOME! There is a good base to the snow and if you do a little exploring you can still find some good pow.

Mirror Lake was groomed on the 27th.
Cold Springs was groomed on the 29th
Soapstone and Mill Hollow were groomed on the 30th.
Soapstone and Mill Hollow will get groomed on the 31st.

There is roughly 45-60" of snow on top, depending on the wind. Come out and enjoy and always check conditions with the Utah Avalanche Center.

12/16/2016

Grooming has begun!!!
Mirror Lake Highway was groomed on the 15th from the North Fork Trailhead to Mirror Lake. At Mirror Lake there is 4 feet of snow with no base. If you go off trail beware of the hidden treasures!
The snowcat is out today working on the Coldsprings and Soapstone area. ALWAYS go slow around the corners on the switchbacks in Soapstone. You never know when there will be a snowmobile, skier, or groomer there to meet you head on.
Today there is a high avalanche warning for the Uintas. PLAY SAFE!!
Make sure you are always beeping and check for avalanche conditions.

12/02/2016

As of today there is not enough snow to start grooming. Hopefully this next storm gives us the snow we need to start. At the top of Wolf Creek pass there is approximately 18-20" of powder with no base.

Be very careful if you go off trail. Our Ranger checked two sleds today that had hit rocks in the meadows and broken their A-arms. Not a good way to start the season!
