Winter Conditions :
All restricted routes and areas showing as closed on the state’s Southwest WY snowmobile trails map are closed annually from Dec. 1st to May 1st or as posted (Special Order 04-03-316).
More heavy wet snow and rain in the lower elevations are resulting not only in snow slides, but also rock/mud slides across the trail route. Even if visitors are not planning to ‘play’ in areas off-trail, everyone really needs to be aware of avalanche and weather conditions and to carry shovels and beacons. Near mile 5 up the Greys River Trail, at least 3 snow slides and a rock slide have now occurred.
Trails seemed to be very bumpy, soft, and hard to ride on. It is advisable that if you have to go on a trail, make sure you bring a shovel, beacon, or probe. Weather is dynamic and you never know when you might be caught in a bad situation.
Salt Pass Ski trails have been signed and marked, but grooming them has not been entirely successful, given the unusual wind and snow conditions as well. Skiers may have to work harder than they are accustomed to up there.
Smiths Fork snow mooblie trail has a huge slide at the base of Commissary Ridge which the groomer will be unable to get through, although sleds can make their way through it.
