Three Low Range Off-Road Employees, Nick Schaefer, James Blackburn and Brittney Hiersche, participated in the third annual Winter 4×4 Jamboree held January 19th, 20th, and 21st near Sand Hollow State Park north east of St. George Utah.
The event central venue is the Washington County Fairgrounds Complex. All trails are located within a 2 hours drive from the fairgrounds. The majority of the trails are within the Sand Mountain Special Recreation Management Area, located just to the south of the Sand Hollow State Park, within 5 miles of the fairgrounds. All trails are day trips, returning to the complex at days end.
The Winter 4×4 Jamboree is a non-competitive trail run event for high clearance 4×4 vehicles. Groups of participants are led on rated trails by experienced trail leaders and helpers. Trails are rated on a 10 point scale, with a rating of 1 for graded roads that may be easily traveled by most cars and a rating of 10 for purpose-built vehicles (buggies) with sophisticated suspensions and drive-trains operated by expert drivers. Trails used for Winter 4×4 Jamboree will be from 2 rated trails through 10 rated trails.
