    Utah Snow Still Deep at Beaver Creek

     The AmSnow mountain crew had a few more members this weekend, as I joined a handful of other riders in some late-March riding in Utah, at one of Western Editor Ryan Thompson's favorite spots. Beaver Creek Lodge hosted American Snowmobiler, and the riding was even better than expected.

    If you've never been to this lodge we HIGHLY recommend it. It is full service and full on fun! Some warm temps in the last few weeks had us a bit worried, but the snow pack here (just 30 minutes northeast of Logan, Utah, in the Cache Valley area) was 14 feet deep in many spots. We had new snow each day we were there. It was heavy, wet spring snow, but it was still snow! If you are looking for a place to ride that isn't too awfully high up in elevation, and fairly close to civilization, then this is a great option for late-season riding.

     At Beaver Creek, you can rent one of many brand new Ski-Doo Summit 850s, or choose from the Lodge's corral of Timbersled-equipped snow bikes. The AmSnow crew was still testing our long-term demo sleds, including our project sled nicknamed "The Photobomber" - a new Polaris RMK complete with aftermarket turbo (check out our upcoming November issue for all the info on that build).

    We also were testing the new 800 Mountain Cat, the new King Cat, a Polaris RMK 174, the new Ski-Doo Summit 164, Yamaha Sidewinder M-TX, and our own Timbersled 137-inch kit on a KTM 300 bike. For a Wisconsinite like myself, it was a big treat to have all these sleds in one of the best locations in the west for spring riding. 

     The photos posted here offer a glimpse of the weekend's shenanigans! Stay tuned for a full travel report in one of this year's issues of American Snowmobiler.
