Earlier this month, Saratoga Resort and Spa’s own Snowy Mountain Brewery sponsored and hosted the Snowy Range Snowmobile Poker Run, which raised $2500 for the Carbon County Search & Rescue with over a hundred hands sold! The awards ceremony for the event was jammed packed and standing-room-only in the pub.
If you couldn’t make it out to the event, don’t fret! You can still have your own Snowy Mountain Adventure!
As our own Doc Janssen has said, “For those who wish to enjoy a good day of riding, there is a total of 315 miles of trails, 201 of which are groomed… These trails lead to some of the most scenic areas of the mountains, so you can fully enjoy the open meadows and jagged peaks that make up this mountain range. I always tell people that at 32 degrees, water turns to freedom.”
Carbon County Search & Rescue volunteers are committed to serving Carbon County in the many facets of wilderness emergency. Their purpose in this multi-disciplined organization is to aid and assist in the saving of life and to lend services of the association to all persons in situations dangerous to life, limb, or property; train and equip search and rescue teams; and to assist the Sheriff whenever the need should arise.
Dispatched by the Carbon County Sheriff’s office, the Search and Rescue team responds to respond to approximately 30 calls per year, ranging from overdue hikers, technical rescues, and out-of-county assists.
