Snow Run.....Providence Canyon

What day works for everyone? Saturday, Dec 14th is a good day for me. Check your calendars and sound off.

This location will be contingent on snowpack. We could have a couple of inches or several feet by then, so let's nail down the date and the location can be flexible to accommodate varying trail conditions.

Re: Snow Run.....Providence Canyon

Looks like the weather will cooperate with us and not dump too much snow before Dec 14th, so the run up Providence Canyon is ON!

This run will take approx. 5 hours, depending on trail conditions and mechanical issues. Based on historical snow runs up Providence Canyon, a minimum of front AND rear limited slip differentials will be required.
Locking diffs preferred and recommended
. There were a few rigs that showed up last December with open diffs or 1 limited slip diff and they couldn't make it past the quarry area, which is where the difficult section of the trail begins. 31" tire minimum, based on current trail conditions.

We will meet at the Macey's Food and Drug in Providence, UT at 9:30am, departing to the trailhead at 10am. The trailhead is nearby, so airing down tires here will be appropriate.

There is a Maverik Store across the street for those who want to fuel up and for airing up tires at the end of the day.

Trail run communication will take place on CB Channel 34

All planning to attend post up here so we can get an approximate headcount.
