Homeowners Only

As a PRUD (Planned Residential Unit Development), Trappers Ridge has governing documents and Rules which govern not only the appearance and maintenance of the property, but also the use of the property and its amenities by owners, guests, and tenants.  The goals of our governing documents are to protect and enhance property values in the community while ensuring the enjoyment of the community by all.

Governing Documents


The Wolf Creek Resort Master Homeowners Association was founded in 2002.  It is an umbrella organization for the neighborhood HOAs of the resort and includes Trappers Ridge.  The majority of the Master HOA’s functions are carried out by the neighborhood HOAs.

Reinvestment Fees: 2nd Amendment to the TRHOA CC&Rs

Trappers Ridge Homeowners:
We are about to ratify the Second Amendment to the Trappers Ridge Declaration of Covenants, Conditions, and Restrictions.  On this web page, you will find a copy of the Second Amendment, the Notice to be recorded following approval, and a Ballot.  Instructions for completing the Ballot are contained within that document.  Keep in mind, you can cast only one vote per lot.
Voting will be open through July 22, 2023 and the results will be announced on Monday, July 24.  A two-thirds majority (95) of all eligible voters (141) is needed to approve the Amendment.  Following approval, the public Notice will be recorded and the HOA will begin collecting a Reinvestment Fee of one-half of one percent (.5%) on every transaction when a lot changes hands.  Certain exceptions apply.  See the Amendment and Notice for details.
The Fees collected will be used to pay the Association’s costs of administering and maintaining the Common Areas and Common Improvements, paying Common Expenses, and maintaining the Reserve Fund.
The Trappers Ridge Board of Directors was unanimous in passing the motion to bring this Amendment to the Members for a vote.  We strongly support the Amendment, and we ask you to vote FOR its approval.
Most of the HOAs in the Eden / Wolf Creek area are collecting Reinvestment Fees at the same rate as proposed here.  We hope we can count on your vote to bring greater financial stability to the Trappers Ridge Homeowners Association.
Please cast your vote early.  You’ll find instructions on the Ballot.  If you have questions or comments, direct them to me or any other member of the Board.
Best regards,

2021 Budget Update

October 10, 2020

Dear Trappers Ridge Homeowners:

In 2021, your assessments will increase to the levels shown in the document “Statement of Assessments.” listed under the 2021 Assessments heading on this page. Increasing dues is not something we do frivolously.  We strive to be good stewards of the Association’s money…your money.

This year we were struck by, yet another, severe windstorm.  Along with the losses from the May 2019 storm and our ongoing work to remove diseased and dying trees, we have lost more than seventy-five trees.  These losses come as a result of a mature landscape and trees that have reached the end of their lifespans.  They are vulnerable to disease and high winds and either we or future storms will take them out.

Both this year and last, we have been able to cover all of the clean-up costs using only our annual operating funds.  Some critical projects have been put on the back burner, but will have to be planned for in 2021.  The cost of these projects, along with the planting of 50 new trees has been built into the 2021 budget.  It will provide the necessary financial resources to keep Trappers Ridge a green and shady oasis.

I am confident in saying our 2022 budget will provide relief and the assessments will be less.       We hope you will find our approach to be reasonable.

Clubhouse, Pool, Hot Tub and Fitness Center Closure

On September 25, 2020, the Board of Directors unanimously agreed to close the Clubhouse, Fitness Center, Pool, and Hot Tub for an indefinite period of time.  The closure goes into effect on Monday, September 28th.  It is a direct result of the spike in Coronavirus cases in Weber County and the State of Utah in general.  Utah County and Salt Lake County have become hot spots and many visitors to the Ogden Valley are from these locales.  The Board’s desire is to protect the health, safety, and well-being of all our members.

Our decision on when to re-open will be based upon the recommendations of the Weber/Morgan County Health District and the State of Utah.  Meanwhile, please practice social distancing when out and about and wear a mask when appropriate.

September 2020 Windstorm Damage

September 13, 2020

Trappers Ridge Homeowners:

STORM DEBRIS:  On Friday, our arborist’s tree removal team was able to remove two extremely dangerous trees and put a large number of branches and trunks through the chipper.  Unfortunately, the job was much more than they could complete in a day.  When a storm of this magnitude takes down thousands of trees, the priorities have to be the protection of people and homes, clearing roads and driveways and restoration of power.  Chipping and removal of debris are lower on the list.  Since Acer Tree Service is unable to return anytime soon, I will make contact with others who may be able to finish the job.  Please be patient, we’ll figure it out.  Hauling green waste to the transfer station would be a last resort.

STREET LAMPS:  The wind damaged at least seven street lamps and worked out at least that many bulbs.  I’ve contacted the county to see if they will take responsibility for repair or replacement, otherwise it’s on us.  This too, will take a little time.

TRASH CANS:  My thanks to all who assisted in picking up trash everywhere throughout the community.  Tara Gilmore, Betsy Jennings, Diane S. and I tackled a mess created when vacating renters put their cans, full of unbagged garbage in the street.  Many others helped neighbors upright their gas grills and patio furniture and hunt down lost cushions.  Our landscapers will collect more trash as they mow and trim, but I’d ask that you grab a plastic grocery bag when you take your walks and pick up whatever is hiding in the nooks and crannies.  If your trash can family grew through this storm, please let me know and if you lost a can, perhaps we can reunite you with your missing friend.

This brings the total number of trees lost in the last eighteen months to about seventy-five.  A significant loss for all of us.  As time and resources allow, we’ll begin the process of stump grinding and replanting some of these trees.




September 10, 2020

Trappers Ridge Homeowners:

That was a nasty storm!  If you weren’t here, you missed some fierce winds and even driving snow.  Some homes lost roofing shingles (clubhouse included), others lost satellite dishes, pieces of siding and even chimneys.  A few large trees fell onto roofs but caused no injury or serious structural damage.  Some fell across driveways and trails.  In all, we lost more than thirty trees.

Our landscapers did an amazing job of mobilizing their crew, cutting down broken trees and cleaning up the debris.  Tomorrow, our tree removal experts will take down a few remaining hangers-on and chip all the limbs and branches piled up near the curb(s).

If we notice your home was damaged, we’ll contact you.



Updated Rules Proposal

The Trappers Ridge Board of Directors has completed the task of re-writing the community Rules and Regulations.  This is the final step in creating a thoroughly researched and updated set of governing documents that will protect the rights and privileges of all Trappers Ridge homeowners.
In accordance with Utah’s Community Association Act, Section 57-8a-217, an open forum Board meeting will be held on Tuesday, September 10th at 10:00 am at the clubhouse.  This meeting will give all Association Members an opportunity to comment on the proposed new rules.  If you are unable to attend, please send your comments to the board via email at trappersridgehoa@gmail.com.  We ask that you keep them concise and to the point. All comments and suggestions are welcome.  We look forward to seeing you in September!
