VOTED MONTANA'S SNOWMOBILE CLUB OF THE YEAR FOR 2020
The UYSC wants to proudly announce the addition of more Beacon Check Stations around our Cooke City, Montana snowmobiling and skiing area. We are placing these where we think they will be most valuable. Please utilize them and share the locations with your riding partners. Learn to use your beacons and other avalanche gear as well as you do your sleds or ski’s.
These beacon check stations are installed for your safety. Put them to use and teach avalanche awareness within your riding crew.

Please support your local clubs.
A huge thank you to Ben Zavora with Beartooth Powder Guides

East of town , HWY 212. Original station provided by Friends of the Gallatin National Forest Avalanche Center. Electricity donated by Alan Adams (Patagonia and DPS Ski). This one has a “memory board” to provide you with a map of past avalanche fatalities. Please take a look when you’re checking your beacon.
This station is located around the corner of Miller Trail. This Beacon check station was donated by B. Boe in memory of a close friend, of his and his son, that was lost to an avalanche on the Daisy Pass road. The electric for this will come from the Cooke City School house. When you stop to check your beacon here please remember that while you are on a riding vacation, the children of Cooke City may not be. Please be considerate of children playing or trying to learn in class. There is no need for long loud Braap of excitement up the road. We have lots of acreage to show your excitement. We do not need to do it all in one spot. (Thank you ahead of time)
New Station at Pilot Creek Parking area. Off Chief Joseph Highway (Wyoming side) This station has been donated by Tom Kobza & Jen Kobza owners of TKI CNC. This station is in memory of Rob Kincaid 103 and Jody Verhasselt. When coming to ride from the east into CC please stop to check your beacons here. This will also be useful as you head up to the Beartooth’s.
This station will be located at the Lulu-Round Lake “Y”. This station was donated by John Payne and The Buckhorn Yellowstone which is located in Livingston, Montana. This one will allow you to check your beacons before heading up to Lulu Pass or out ride at Round Lake and beyond.
