What's Happening?

National Invasive Species Awareness Week is February 22-28, 2015. Non-native plants, animals and pathogens can harm humans and the environment and impact our nation's economy.  Invasive weeds can produce skin irritation, trigger allergies and poison pets and livestock. They can clog waterways, kill native trees, and shade out crops, ornamentals and prized native flora. 5 Steps to Prevent the Spread of Invasive Plants and Animals

     1. Drain, Clean, Dry gear and boats
     2. Burn local or certified firewood
     3. Use weed-free hay
     4. Stay on trails
     5. Before arriving & leaving, remove mud & seeds

Ski Trail Info
Pleasant Grove Ranger District: 
The Little Mill Ski area was groomed Monday, March 2nd. The plan is to groom the trail depending on amount of snow 2-3 times per week, and one time just before weekends, on Fridays.
Salt Lake Ranger District:  Updated conditions as of Wednesday, February 18, 2015 for Mill Creek Canyon ski trail. The trail is extremely icy the first mile and a half and large portions of the trail have very little to no snow. Folks can still ski but be prepared to walk sections of the trail. The lantern in the Yurt has been fixed, fire wood, and extra supplies for the yurt have been stocked.  The trail will be groomed when it receives more snow.
Heber-Kamas Ranger District: The Beaver Creek ski trail, on the Heber-Kamas Ranger District was groomed Tuesday, January 13th. With the warm weather the snow has been melting and refreezing so conditions are not ideal for skiing. Dogs are allowed on odd days. The trail will be groomed again when it snows.

Snowmobile Information
Pleasant Grove Ranger District: Current snow conditions do not meet the required 12” of minimum snow for over snow conditions, and have prompted the closure of the center gates at: Tibble Fork Reservoir, Pine Hollow Trailhead, Aspen Grove Trailhead, and Cascade Springs.
