New This Week

Trail Grooming Update

With lighter snow conditions this year, The Conservancy has received several homeowner inquiries with questions on our community trail grooming, how often it can be done, and what type of grooming equipment is being deployed.

Our regular schedule for grooming is 7 days a week with the most attention spent grooming trails Monday through Friday.  If all trails have adequate snow to groom, a full circuit will take 2 days to groom all trails completely. The Nordic Park at the Nicklaus Clubhouse is an additional 3-4 hours depending on conditions. We do post regular updates on the status of groomed trails on the website.
  • The Large commercial groomer (which provides the most compact and walkable trail surface) has aluminum snow cleats on the rubber track. In order to operate this large groomer, there must be at least 18-24 inches of snow so that the aluminum cleats don’t get bent on the underlying asphalt, gravel or sage. When the heavy groomer compacts the snow, it condenses to a 9-12 inch firm base. The other limitation is the tiller that grooms the trails is a rotating device attached behind the groomer. This tiller is very precise for a detailed groom. As it turns, the tiller compacts and leaves a texture behind ideal for walking, skiing even show shoeing. The tillers need enough snow to leave the texture. As it rotates, it also reconditions the snow. If there is not enough snow, the tiller can grab sage brush and rocks or hit the asphalt causing stress on the components that rotate. This is a delicate tiller (unlike a tiller for cultivating dirt) and it does not like debris.
  • The Conservancy also has a snow mobile with groomer attachment, and this machine is mostly used for community trails, except for the areas above the tubing hill where we will run the commercial groomer as often as possible. The snow mobile can get around or go over thin patches better than the Large Commercial groomer. We plan to run the snow mobile as often as possible, every day where snow conditions permit, although the last 10 days have not been ideal due to higher temperatures resulting in soft and slushy snow.
  • The majority of our community trails consist of gravel and asphalt paths, like the Three Mile Trail. The Trails around Palisades and Bison Bluffs, including the Ranch Club Trail, are accessible by accessing the Three-Mile Trail. Oftentimes, the Three-Mile trail is not able to be groomed with the snow mobile nor the large commercial groomer because of the lack of snow, and, unfortunately, the asphalt underneath the snow causes the snow to melt faster.
  • The most readily serviceable trail is the Ridge Trail that is divided into several parts from the Dog Park to the Dye Cabins. We can groom that trail more often because of the accessibility.


  • The Nordic Park at The Nicklaus Course is an even more delicate course. We are limited to the cart path under the snow which is only 8 ft wide. As we get additional snow, we can widen out the path with the large commercial groomer, but we are limited to the same conditions as listed above. We intend to use the large commercial groomer as often as possible. The snow mobile is ideal for most every other situation on the Nordic Course. The snow can be too soft and slushy to groom as well. If the snow conditions are not ideal, we run the risk of removing or causing the snow to be reduced to dirt or dragging on the concrete pathway and we don’t want to scar the pathway.

Please check the website often for the status of trail grooming throughout the community.

Gate Vetting

To expedite vehicle processing at our gatehouses, please be sure to add guest passes into Northstar before they plan on entering Promontory. For groups of 10 or more, you may email a guest list to the gatehouse email ( at least 48 hours in advance, if possible.

The gate staff recognizes that circumstances change, but completing this step before your guests arrive will greatly reduce delay at the gates. In the event a guest or owner must be checked in, and vehicles back up, PLEASE be kind and understanding of the situation. Gate attendees are continually striving to sufficiently vet entrants, but this may lead to slight delays.

Safety Reminder

Remember to keep a safe distance from any body of water, which includes but is not limited to, the Mountain Garden Pond, Saddle Lake, golf course ponds, and retention ponds. Do not go out on the ice. Please inform all family members and guests, (and keep an eye on your pets) to stay away from the ice while enjoying the beautiful winter landscape.

Promontory Conservancy Winter Snow Removal

Last week brought our first snow of the season, which means it is once again time to refresh on best practices and protocols for Promontory snow conditions. Please take a few minutes to carefully review this communication to ensure that you are “in the know” and ready to respond before we get heavy into winter.

  • Also, be aware of snow depth surrounding your gas meter and other mechanical equipment around your home. Allowing snow or ice to cover these items can pose a risk of damage.

Road Right of Way

As snow season approaches, please be mindful of rocks, landscaping, and other improvements within the road right of way. On most roads within Promontory, the right of way spans 10-12 feet from the edge of the pavement. The right of way exists to provide ample room for runoff control, snow removal, and road/utility maintenance. Making sure the shoulder is clear of objects is crucial for avoiding damage and controlling runoff. The Conservancy has begun to fix eroded shoulders in problem areas and will continue to monitor problem areas. If you have any questions or concerns about landscaping within the right of way, please contact Darrin Nielsen at (801-870-6374).

Conservancy Reminders

Pedestrian Safety

Our community is active, out, and about.  Be safe when walking. Please avoid walking on or along the roads. We understand that trails may be muddy or slushy, but until the snow sufficiently melts, the roadside is not safe. The risk is simply too great under the current circumstances.

Visitor & Guest Registration

Promontory uses an internet-based software system that allows you to manage your guests’ and visitors’ access to Promontory. The Promontory Club app & owner/member website e-mails your guests a gate pass for them to show the gate attendant upon arrival. As a resident, you will set the time frame when your visitors can enter the property.

Recycling & Garbage

Please use your own garbage and recycling containers for garbage and recyclable materials. If you have more than your containers can handle, please DO NOT dispose of trash or recyclable materials in any dumpsters or trash bins located in Promontory.

  • Momentum Recycling offers at home glass recycling pick-up. For more information & to sign-up click here.
  • Recyclable materials can be taken to Recycle Utah in Park City. Information can be found here.
  • Information for the Three Mile Canyon Landfill can be found here.
Please Note:
  • If you are planning an event at your home, and your guests will require more parking than your driveway can handle, please contact the Field Safety Manager, Matt Urban, at least 72 hours before the event so parking and logistics can be thoroughly coordinated.
