1-17-2017

SR-31 remains closed so you are not able to access the big drift parking lot or the millers flat parking lot.  We hope they will be opened up soon.

 

White River was groomed on 1-14-2017.  Snow conditions were great with 4 to 5 feet of base.

 

North Skyline/Bear Ridge/Starvation Canyon will be groomed today 1-17-2017

1-13-2017

We just finished a grooming run today.  We groomed North Skyline to the warming hut at the top of Fish Creek and then turned around and went back. 

 

The snow was deep and a little wetter than expected.  We sunk about 18 inches everywhere we went but the snow is set up pretty good underneath that.  Everywhere you go is soft, it's just not fluffy like I was expecting. 

 

SR-31 is closed at the junction by mile marker 9.  That means the upper parking lots near the Big Drift and Miller Flat are closed as well.  Rumor today from UDOT was to expect a few more days of having the road closed. 

 

We have heard that our trailer to transport the snowcat will arrive early next week.  As soon as it does we will update our schedule.

1-8-2017

We just finished grooming North Skyline/Bear Ridge/Starvation and back up Skyline. 

If you go riding on Saturday you will notice that the snow and wind have created some neat wind rows.  Waves and waves of small bumps.  Check it out when you are on the hill.

 

We plan to groom Millers Flat trailhead on 1-7-2017 and will continue as far south on that trail as fuel allows.

Grooming 1-6-2017

We will be on the trail all day on Friday January 6th.  We plan to groom from the Fairview Trailhead along North Skyline and then down Bear Ridge to Scofield.  We then head over Starvation Canyon to Tucker where we refuel and take North Skyline all the way back to the Fairview Trailhead.

 

Snow conditions should be excellent as the snow that fell today was very cold and light. 

 

We hope to be grooming White River and Millers Flat soon.  (we are still waiting for a trailer to haul the snowcat.)

Update 12-30-2016

On 12-28-2016 we groomed North Skyline, Bear Ridge, Starvation, Clear Creek.

 

Overall the snow is deep.

 

Bear Ridge was very wind blown and caused us to double track it.  Hopefully the wind does not blow in and cover the trail too quickly. 

 

We will attempt to groom again on either January 1st or after this weekends storm passes.

Plan to groom 12-28-2016

The past storm dumped on the Scofield/Skyline Complex.  Snotel sites show depths around 4 feet.

 

Tomorrow (12-28-16) we will spend all day grooming trails.  We will begin at the Fairview trailhead at sunrise.  We will then groom across North Skyline and down Bear Ridge to Scofield Reservoir by lunchtime.  The cat will then drop down Starvation Creek to Tucker.  At Tucker we will refuel and then head up Clear Creek and take North Skyline all the way back to the Fairview Trailhead.  We hope to finish the day around 9 pm. 

 

Thanks and have a great time riding.

North Skyline to Fish Creek Warming Hut 12-19

We were able to spend the day grooming North Skyline today. 

 

We went from the Fairview Trailhead North to the Warming Hut at the top of Fish Creek.  Overall the snow was fantastic for Mid December.  We saw 9 trucks and trailers at the parking lot and most of them were riding off the trail.  Snotel sites are showing depths in the 30 inch range and that is probably very accurate. 

 

Here are a couple pictures. 

The first is the new snow at our Snowcat Shed that fell on 12-16 and 12-17.

The second shows the condition of the trail near Johnson Ridge. 

 

Enjoy

12/4/2016

Our base depths range from 13 inches to 22 inches. 

 

We need more snow before we can get the snowcat onto the trails.

 

In year past our first grooming run of the year happens in between Christmas Day and New Years Day.
