Any Utah riders?

Just wondering how many Utah riders are on here. And what are your favorite places to ride?

monte cristo (sr39) is popular place. If your looking for more extreme terrain you should head up to the logan snowmobile trail complex. www.snowut.com has a lot of info. Tony's grove is also a favoraite among locals.

Skip the deployment... I'll write you a note to give to your commander.

Seriously - thank you for what you do! I'm too old for active duty, so I support our warfighters (as a civilian) on base.

The real riding season doesn't usually start until after Christmas, but then it normally lasts well into April. Hopefully we will get some snow early in the season so you can get out there and have some fun.

We better get an early season! We're expecting a couple feet in the weekend. May be heading up Monday to Monte if it's good enough. Just got my 98 SRX and I haven't even ripped it yet. Hopefully Monday is my lucky day.

WOW... looks like conditions weren't bad that day. SnoTel is reporting 30+ inches at Monte... has been for a few weeks now.

I still have to rebuild my Polaris top end, and I'm in the middle of a move... so riding season will have to wait till after the first of the new year for me.

They weren't to bad we drove to Curtis creek and unloaded there some places that day had 4' some spots had 3" ha ha. But the gate was closed this weekend and snow was a good 3 miles up the road I didn't feel like dirt riding that far so cut my losses and went home. This weekend should be good though!

Guardmans pass is just past solitude ski resort. If you know to get to solitude you ccan get to guardmans pass. Its one left turn after you pass the resort. Its really easy to miss. Its a really sharp left turn. That's probably the best I can explain it.

Haven't been out at all this year (so far). I have a friend who rode Monte Cristo a couple weeks ago, and he said it was decent if you stayed on the trail. It was thin off-trail, but he didn't ride very far north... just did the 39 to Curtis Creek, to Ant Flat loop...

If you check out the Logan Summit webcam, it looks like they're getting quite a bit of snowfall right now.
