We were there this weekend also, there is about 20 of us that dont stop there since the chane in ownership. On the flipside I think things are getting better at Buckhorn.rode Saturday and Sunday. best snow conditions i have ever been able to ride out there. Saturday did get to the mid to upper 40s, and did change the open snow quite a bit. Sunday was in the 20s so the trails were a little icy early in the morning. but we found just as good of snow Sunday as we did on Saturday. anything in the shade and facing the the northerly direction is fantastic. you can find any type of riding you want to right now.
i did hear that saturday was busier then presidents weekend.
also, we are 5 for 5 on bad experiences with the new trailshead owner ship. had breakfast sunday morning there to beat the crowd. i ordered my food and my wife was torn between two so it took her an extra 30 seconds to decide, and the gentleman at the till had the nerve to speak out very loudly and tell everyone in the line "if you don't know what you want, get out of line so you don't waist my time by not know what you want when you get up here".
I refuse toI hate to say we’ve been avoiding Trailshead and getting lunch and gas elsewhere because he can be very abrasive. Julie has always been very pleasant and has great customer service. I think she has been running their Facebook page and doing a great job other than the post regarding trailer parking in their lot across the highway.
Customer service can be painful with some people, but that’s the business he chose. The yelling and crabbing will drive people away. With that said, there wasn’t much parking if any on Saturday, so maybe it won’t drive them away...
Warm temps this weekend have really set up the off trail snow.... Decent trail riding in the mornings, but got a little slushy by noon. Picked up a couple of inches since last weekend, and there hasn't been a lot of traffic in the last week. Good base, just getting a little too setup... Seen several sleds with hoods up yesterday or getting towed in (including one of ours). Just everything getting a little to warm....weather looks warm up there how is it affecting off trail snow? like to ride either north or south of trailshead. not particular just wherever least amount of tracks are
I was South today. Looks like maybe 2 inches at best in Parmelee and Red Bank areas. Went down to Ice Caves and ran out of snow in some areas. Looked like they got around 4+ inches as I went East towards trail 1 down by 6 mile. I did not get into Mountain Meadows. I did see 2 of their rentals yesterday.
