Update on Taylor Park/Tin Cup Areas By Buena Vista Snowmobile Club

Zach Shacter | Published on 1/4/2024

"With hopefully an eventful storm cycle arriving at our doorsteps this weekend, we wanted to alert our users of unusual traffic around the Taylor Park and Tin Cup areas. We have been unable to groom to either Taylor Park or Tin Cup this season due to lack of snow - but with this potential storm activity over the next week, we hope to have access up and running as soon as possible.

The USFS has been working with our club extensively over the last two years to coordinate the management of a winter timber harvest in the Slaughterhouse Gulch area (please see map for reference). Our club's coordination has kept winter recreation access open throughout the timber sale process, however there will be plowing activity and closures throughout the season. We will do our best to update this page when those situations arise.

FS 764 IN SLAUGHTERHOUSE GULCH: Closed to public for winter timber operations, where the actual harvesting operations are happening. Gates and signs are present at the boundaries to notify public.

FS 765: Mixed use in the form of a half groomed trail for the public and half plowed for haul traffic. Plowed crossings will be at both bridges and cattle guards along 765. Signs will be going up next week."


Thank you!
