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.

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!

Grooming Report for 3/16/2016

Hello all you die hard sledders that are still hitting the hills. If you have put your sled away for the season, man are you missing out. The storms since Sunday have put down several feet of snow in the higher elevations. Grooming on the Mirror Lake Hwy today was awesome although I wish I had hit the resort with my board! We are still losing snow at the lower elevations which is making it difficult to get to our snow cat shed but we will continue so long as conditions permit. We have several trainings the rest of the month that will affect grooming but here is what we are projecting till the end of the season which will likely be March 31st, as only a fool would groom in April! April fools joke!

 

March 17 and 21- Soapstone, Cold Springs, Noblett's, Mill Hollow

March 18,19,25,26- Soapstone, Mill Hollow, Lake Creek, Noblett's

March 23- Mirror Lake Hwy

 

We will see what the week of the 27th brings and may do some last minute grooming that week. Thanks for a great season and be careful with these spring conditions.

3/11/2016

The last storm dropped between 4" and 8" depending on elevation. Unfortunately due to the warm weather that snow has all melted and become one mass. This time of year you really need to ride the day of the storm or the day after to enjoy the pow.

We have groomed all the trails. The snow at the Nobblets and Soapstone trailhead is very thin. Which makes it impossible to groom. Blame mother nature for those bumps.

Make sure to check the avalanche conditions before you ride. The snow is warming up in the afternoon and sliding. Make sure you ALWAYS wear a beacon, the snow is very unpredictable. Play safe and have fun.

The snow is melting FAST!! There are rocks and stumps peaking through the snow. BE SAFE!

I would recommend staying on the trails unless you want to break something. There is approximately 4 feet of snow at 10,000 feet and barley enough to cover the road at the trail heads.

Enjoy the warm weather, throw down your scratchers and enjoy our beautiful mountains and smooth trails.
