Grooming Report 2/7/15

We have been experiencing a very mild winter.  The snowcat has yet to go out on the trail this year.  There is currently 12 inches of snow at Trout Creek and 9 inches at King's Cabin.  The East Park road is currently open all the way to East Park Reservoir.  Unless we get some more snow, the snowcat will not see the trail this year.

Grooming Report 01/16/15

The weather hasn't been kind to us out here in the Uintah Basin.  The conditions at the trailheads still haven't allowed us to start our grooming operations.  The current conditions at Trout Creek is 12 inches, Kings Cabin 10 inches and Chepeta 23 inches.

 

Grooming operations will start when we get ample snowfall to do so safely and all Snowcat operators are trained. So lets all hope for a good snowfall soon and by all means get your snowmobiles tuned up, registered, and safety equipment all in good working order. As a reminder, now is a great time to get your snowmobile riders who are under 16 through the safety course that is required by law. The safety course can be taken at www.stateparks.utah.gov.

Grooming Report 03/4/14

 It wasn't a very good year for grooming the trails this season.  The snowcat was able to make it out 1 time this year 

and found the snow conditions poor to safely operate the snowcat.  The snow depths, as per the snowtel site,  still shows only 20" at trout creek.  Lets hope for better conditions next year.
