Today's Comments - March 8, 2016The snow is melting fast and there's limited grooming left. We will continue to groom the Willow Creek area and the upper section of the Basin 5k as long as we can.
Warm temperatures are melting south facing slopes and hills are turning brown, but don't be fooled! Areas like Glenwild may look dry from a distance, but the trails are MUDDY! And will be for some time. Please protect the trails and wait till they dry out. If you must get out on dirt, there are areas in the Salt Lake valley that are drying out.
We update this page each day that we groom so bookmark it for easy reference, or if you 'd like to join our email list to be notified when we groom just send a quick email to firstname.lastname@example.org with your name and email address (and ask to be added to the grooming report list).

The Basin Recreation trails crew does not have a set grooming schedule. Our target grooming days are Monday, Wednesday, and Friday with a touch up of the heavier used trails on Saturday, but we may groom more or less depending on the weather. We typically won’t groom while snow is falling but we will proceed with grooming operations shortly after new snowfall stops. The crew has found that this is the most efficient way to provide the best trail surfaces. The grooming report will be updated and emailed as soon as grooming is complete. If you wish to receive grooming report emails, please send your request to email@example.com.
