Winter Hike, Snowshoe and Cross Country Ski Event

Posted by Scott on February 18, 2010

On Saturday, March 6, 2010 the public is invited to Cedar Breaks National Monument Yurt Open House. Bring the family, a lunch, and a smile for a day of Cross Country Skiing, and Snowshoeing, or hiking fun.

Come join park rangers Paul Roelandt and Teri Saa and cross-country ski or snowshoe approximately 1 mile to a yurt which serves as the winte ranger station for Cedar Breaks National Monument. At the yurt, we will get warm, have lunch, and some hot chocolate or apple cider than ski or hike out. The roundtrip is approximately 2 miles.

Though this is Not a difficult route, a beginner’s knowledge is required of how to use cross-country ski’s or snowshoes, unless you choose to just hike. The terrain is snowy and hilly with an elevation gain of less than 300 feet. We will ski or hike alongside a groomed snowmobile trail and will be skiing about an hour each way.

What to bring? Bring a lunch and a small day pack. A wind-proof outer-layer (jacket and pants) and 2-3 insulating layers for keeping warm. Mittens/gloves, a wool  or fleece hat, and sturdy hiking shoes or ski boots that are waterproof are recommended as well as a personal first aid kit, sunscreen, sunglasses, at least 2 quarts of water and snacks. Once we arrive at the yurt, there is a wood stove to get warm by and hot chocolate or apple cider will be provided.

Meet us at 9 am at the Main Street Park Pavilion (Main Street and 200 S). Car pools will be arranged, or you can caravan up and back with our own vehicle. We will be back in Cedar City by 4:30 pm.

Cross country ski’s or snowshoes are not required for this event, but if you wish, they can be rented at George’s Ski Shop in Brian Head.

Note: Event Depends Upon Good Snow Conditions and Weather. Based upon weather forecasts for Saturday, this event will be confirmed or cancelled by noon on Friday, March 5th. Call the Cedar Breaks administrative office at 435-586-9451 ext. 0 for more information and to confirm conditions are OK to hold the event no later 4 pm on Friday, March 5th.

Fire Threatens Brian Head

Posted by Scott on August 31, 2009

Brian Head Fire 2009

Brian Head Fire 2009

Fire fighters from Brian Head and Parowan are currently on site doing their best to contain the fire. However, high winds pose a threat. A helicopter is currently dropping water and everyone hopes the fire does not grow.

It is unknown at this time how the fire started. The fire is located South East of Steam Engine Subdivision.

I was pulling up to my office when I saw the police truck race up Bear Flat road with sirens blaring. I quickly followed to see what all the excitement was about. As I drop up the mountain I could see the fire truck in my rear view mirror.  By the time I arrived there were only three other trucks just arriving. We all grabbed shovels and began to put out what had already grown to approximately one acre.

The winds are blowing North East, so it doesn’t appear that this fire will pose a threat to cabins in the surrounding areas.

Local Mountain Biker Needs your Support

Posted by Scott on March 6, 2009

Brian Head Downhill 1

Brian Head Downhill 1

Kevin Talbot sent me this letter requesting a donation. I am posting it here in hope that others will also send a few dollars to help out. Latest Post.

Hello,

I have only raised 25.00 for this ride. I need 400.00 to participate. Please help as much as you are able, 5.00 would help. I have been training hard for this ride and I don’t want to be bumped because of lack of donations. I know times are hard, for me as well, so if you can’t please don’t!! Just let this email be an update on what I am up too. Thank you I would loce to hear from all of you.

I’m doing something about multiple sclerosis now and you can, too. Support me in my upcoming ride in the BP MS 150 on April 18-19.

The National MS Society believes that moving is not just something you can or can’t do, but rather is who you are. This is why they produce events like the BP MS 150 to raise funds for research, as well as comprehensive programs and services for people with MS moving closer to a world free of MS.

When you support the BP MS 150, you become a part of the powerful movement that will end MS forever.

I appreciate your support and will keep you posted on my progress.

Snowmobile Repairs

Posted by Scott on February 4, 2009

Thunder Mountain Motorsports

Thunder Mountain Motorsports

Thunder Mountain Motorsports is still taking appointments and doing services as quickly as possible. If you would like them to schedule your machine(s) in, please call or email to let us know. The standard price for each snowmobile is $195 (price DOES NOT include parts or sales tax).

Their snowmobile service is a very thorough maintenance and inspection. Each machine gets inspected, lubed, and adjusted from bumper-to-bumper. Snowmobiles are ready to ride when our service is complete, THIS INCLUDES GAS & OIL, plus SPARE BELT & SPARK PLUGS. So if you do not want them to top off the fluids and replenish your spares, please say so.

If they find any repairs needed, these will be in addition to the cost of the service. They always authorize any work prior to doing it.

Don’t get caught with a snowmobile that is not ready to ride when you are. Snow is here…  We hope to see you soon.

Here are the results for the first race today (RESULTS). All eyes are on Jeremy Horgan-Kobelski (JHK) to finish in one of the top spots at American Mountain Classic (click here to visit their website AMC) Bike Four Day Stage Race.

Jeremy is a big fan of Brian Head. “It’s my favorite place to race.” he said and I love coming here each year.

Here Heather Irmiger admires her husband. She too was close to qualifying for the one of the olympic spots.

We wish all racers luck in this weekend races in Brian Head Utah.

American Mountain Classic (click here to visit their website AMC) Bike Four Day Stage Race is a nationally recognized endurance race and it’s happening right here in Brian Head, Utah this weekend. At a unfamiliar elevation of 10,000 feet, the world’s top riders will be challenged physically. Brian Head is the perfect location for the stage races with terrain and temperature unbeatable. (click here to view race details)

Some of America’s top athletes in all categories and age groups will be competing in this race. According to Tom Speigel, the AMC-Brian Head director, “150 people have already signed up to compete in this race. 25 of them are pro-men racers. 15 are pro-women racers. This is a very good turn out and numbers should double at next years event.” This is a great start to a national and perhaps an international competition. 

Some of America’s top riders will be here including Jeremy Horgan-Kobelski (JHK of Subaru Gary Fisher), Sid Taberley (Sho Air), Jeremiah Bishop (Trek) and Tinker Juarez (Two time Olympian and recently won the Solo 24 Hour World Championship) are some of the top men competitors. Women competitors include Lea Davison and Heather Irmiger. When you come to watch you will not be disappointed with the action.

Speigel was very pleased to have great sponsors and support. Preparation is a lot of work for his team of about 20 people. Team Sho-Air and Brian Head Ski Resort are the two sponsors for this spectacular event. The winners are competing for up to $20,000 in prizes. “This could be one of the highest paid single events in the nation” said Speigel. All racers will receive a jersey and medals according to their ranking. “We couldn’t do it without our sponsors and we want them to be recognized.”

The favored feature of this event is the location in Brian Head, Utah. Speigel initially wanted to take the event from Cedar City to Moab but the plan didn’t work out. It spread racers out and made transportation more difficult. This made it difficult for amateurs and/or solo racers to participate. “Brian Head helps provide more for racers by allows for more support groups, Brian Head minimizes transportation necessities and has a better terrain” said Speigel. “Besides, Brian Head has excellent world class riding. It’s perfect.”

Day 1 – Race determines starting positions for Stage 2 race. Times do not factor in to overall winning times.
The American Mountain Classic will start with a 6 mile Prologue using the town trail in Brian Head.  The  six mile loop is a mix of fire road, single track and double track and will give racer’s a taste of what it will be like racing at over 9,000 feet for the next three days!

The Elite Men’s, Elite Women’s and Elite Master 40+ class’ will be vying to don the A.M.C. race leader’s jersey.  Amateur racers will use the pro log to establish starting positions for tommorrow’s stage. 

Day 2 (Stage 2) – The Rim. 55 miles. 5,000+ Feet of Elevation Gain
This 55 mile stage is named for the Epic Virgin River Rim Trail.  Featuring over 30 miles of single track on the “Rim” trail, getting a good start is going to be important.  The course takes racers along Utah’s famous Pink Cliffs and offers views of Zion National Park to the south.  This stage is sure to test everyone.

Day 3 (Stage 3) – The Peak. 55 miles. 4,000+ Feet of Elevation Gain
At 11,306 feet, Brian Head Peak dominates the Utah skyline.  The first 5 miles of the course takes racers to 11,000 feet, just below the peak.  Then it’s onto some single track as the course winds its way out to Red desert and Tippets Valley.

Aspen trees and flat fast fire roads are a welcomed change of scenery from the opening climb.  Racers return back to Brian Head with an assault side trip back to the “Peak”.n The stage finishes with a fun ride on the Peak Trail and down Color Country. When you see Cedar Breaks National Monument you will know you’re almost home!

Day 4 (Stage 4) – Dark Hollow. 54 Miles. 5,600+ Feet of Elevation Gain
The 2006 N.M.B.S cross country course is the site for the final stage show down!  This course received rave reviews from racers of all abiliities  from our last stop here a couple years ago.
