Exclamation SLC railyard

I need help!! I've been all over the net and can't find out where the "railyard" in Salt Lake City is. Does anyone know the intersection, address, or have directions to it?! I live in Evanston, WY and will drive into SLC westbound on I-80. I've seen this spot in all the vids I have and want the chance to shred it myself. HELP!!!!

It's a total bust now from what I have heard. I doubt you'd even get your bindings strapped down.

Salt Lake has gotten so popular with the Urban jibbing crowd that it seems the whole town is a bust these days. Cops look out for it. There are still spots for sure. B&S and some of the other Utards on the board here, might be able to give you some hints on where you can get your jib on in SLC.

Curious. Evanston Wyoming is on the backside of the Wasatch correct? I've traveled through there getting from point A to B frequently. I noticed signs for snowmobiling, that sort of thing. Is their good riding around there via sled access? I don't think I have ever seen a trip report from the area, but that doesn't mean it's not there...

We used to have a big, pink rail that's been in many vids and the rails out by the hospital have been a few flicks too (not to mention the Davis Middle School rail).... but as to any good actual spots that won't get you jail time or a fine .... maybe a couple up in the Uintas, but that's sled access only. I think our state tree is sagebrush (heh heh heh). It really ruins any descent hill around. I build little kickers and rails all over town every winter, but that really gets old quick. Drop me an email next time you're out this way and want to ride. All the good snow usually falls all around us (like a 45 minute drive around Evanston), so I usually ride at : Beaver, Snowbasin, Powder Mtn, The Canyons, or Brighton.

Ah the Uintas are in your area. There is some sick backcountry riding in the Uintas. Definitely a sled access area.

Most definitely, but they close the road towards them about 30 miles outside of town here. Good thing is ... they have ample parking for trucks and sled trailers all out there by the gates, and in a good season the pow is epic.
