Deep powder snow is the signature of living in the Wasatch mountains. In addition to the beauty and the better ski conditions, the storm brought with it numerous road closures, accidents, avalanches, flight delays, and cancellations.
Snow Removal Timing
Below is the general timing framework of the snow removal contract.
- Ranch Club Trail and Promontory Ranch Road are continuously plowed during
a snow event to keep both lanes of these main-artery roads passable.
- For Cabin/Villa neighborhoods, the walks and driveways are to be cleared within 3 hours after a snow event.
- The snow berms created by the snow plows are the owners responsibility, however our crew will be able to clear them as soon as the snow event is over upon owners request.
- Snow and ice buildup will occur on roads that cannot be removed by plowing. The contractor is required to apply Redmond road salt to assist in ongoing snow and ice melt.
Based on the experience of this last major snow event, the Conservancy is making the following changes:
- For Cabin/Villa Owners – those paying an additional assessment for walks and driveway snow removal– Special driveway markers will be installed to notify crews to prioritize occupied homes over vacant. Additionally, we are asking Cabin Owners in residence to turn on their outside lights during a snow event for extra notification to prioritize your home.
- Owners must not offer to pay the crews to have them shovel decks or any other area beyond what is contracted as this slows down progress. Promontory Home Services can provide this service to homes under contract.
- Owners can email email@example.com to notify crews if their home is occupied or to notify if an area has been missed.
- Promontory has its own “hotshot” crew and equipment to quickly respond to specific areas for emergencies. This will allow the snow removal contractor to focus on the overall snow plowing instead of continual redirecting.
- The Conservancy is modifying the deployment methods of the contractor crews to improve community-wide coverage. This includes adding ‘frequency’ standards during heavy snowfalls and strong wind conditions.
- Promontory will get the contractor to remove snow mounds that are blocking access to homes, or making the movement of snow removal equipment impossible.
- Promontory is checking the working order of ALL contractor’s snow removal equipment and certifying that required equipment is deployable.
We continue to appreciate your calls and emails to firstname.lastname@example.org, as this helps us identify if an area was missed or is having particular difficulty.

Promontory Conservancy & ForeTees
The Conservancy will be using ForeTees to send messages directly to Promontory owners regarding homesite-specific matters. It is not necessary to be a Club member to access these messages, nor do you need the mobile app, as these will be sent to e-mail accounts.
Please know these messages are approved by the Conservancy.
If you have any questions please contact Logan Finlayson at 435.333.4063 or click the link below.
Holiday Decor & Lighting
Owners may display holiday decorations located or visible from outside their Residences, if they are of reasonable size and scope, and do not disturb other Owners and residents by excessive light, sound emission or by causing an unreasonable amount of spectator traffic.
Holiday decorations may be displayed from November 1st to March 1st
Colored or white lights are permitted. The Board recommends that any owner purchasing new white lights please purchase
those designated as “warm” and “soft” rather than “cool.”

A snow fence is a barrier that is designed to direct windblown, drifting snow to accumulate in a desired place. They are used along highways throughout the rocky mountains during the winters and typically removed and stored during the summers. State highway departments have a calculus to determine if a snow fence would be useful on a given stretch of roadway. Many states now use a “Living Snow Fence” program consisting of tree planting which has the added benefits of highway beautification and it does not need to be removed at the end of the winter. Depending on the wind dynamics of the particular location, a snow fence may not significantly reduce drifting snow.
For the Promontory homeowners want to put up a snow fence the Promontory architectural review committee is happy to help ensure it is visually appealing for both the homeowner and the neighborhood. As an expression of the owner’s personal requirement for quality and beauty, as well as snow drift protection, the ARC asks that any snow fence be designed to be a visual extension of the home and the community, as well as functional.
In the days following the fire just North of I-80, Conservancy staff have received a number of requests about notifications in the case of an emergency.
Some years ago Summit County created a system to provide phone, email, and text messages regarding emergencies. The system was upgraded such that anyone who previously signed up will need to sign up again.
The alert center also provides information about non-emergency matters in and about Summit County.
