Harts Pass Update

As of December 1st this year, Harts Pass Road is closed. The Forest Service usually does not close the road until snow amounts do not allow truck access. Reports of over 20’ trailers (hitch to bumper) have been taken up the road. This shorter length is in place for safety reasons. There has also been reports of riders, riding into Wilderness Areas; Closed to Motorized use. Please follow these rules so you do not jeopardize the future access of snowmobiles in the area.
Methow Valley Snowmobile Association has talked to the Forest Service about the above issues. The Forest Service will reopen the gate to Harts Pass for the weekend and it will be closed first thing Monday morning. The gate will be reopened when Mountain Trails Grooming opens it for Winter Grooming. Law enforcement will be in the area this weekend to educate users about the rules. Thank you to the Forest Service for allowing the gate to be opened again.

Hart's Pass Update

This GIGANTIC boulder at Dead Horse Point is why grooming was not able to done up to Hart's Pass this year. The size of it was waaaay beyond our capability of easily removing it. It's not that we didn't try. Please note this picture was taken at the beginning of March when there was still snow on the ground. We know some riders were able to get up to Hart's but the groomer is not able to get around that blockage.
