Thank you all for helping us celebrate yet another successful Winter 4x4 Jamboree!  Mark you Calendars for January 14-16, 2021!

We invite you to join us for the Winter 4x4 Jamboree held in Hurricane, Utah, (2 hours from Las Vegas) January 14-16, 2021. This spectacular event features world-class rock crawling combined with gorgeous views of Zion National Park, Pine Valley Mountain, Sand Hollow Reservoir and more! You can also choose less challenging trails beginning with ratings at a 2. The Winter 4x4 Jamboree is a non-competitive trail run event for high clearance 4x4 vehicles. Groups of participants are led on rated trails by experienced trail leaders and helpers. Trails are rated on a 10 point scale, where a rating of 1 would be for graded roads that may be easily traveled by most cars and a rating of 10 is for purpose-built vehicles (buggies) with sophisticated suspensions and drivetrains operated by expert drivers. 


The number of vehicles on each trail is limited to ensure participants have an enjoyable experience. Early registrants will have the most choices as we close trails when the limit is reached. More technical trails are limited to groups of 10 and other trails may have up to 25 vehicles. Because of the different capabilities of full-size vehicles (Jeep, Toyota, Samurai, buggy etc.) vs. ATVs / UTVs, we are limiting the event to full-size vehicles only. 


The staging area at the Washington County Fairgrounds in Hurricane features individual lanes and starting times assigned to each trail. Registration will open on-line Dec. 7, 2020. Your selected lanes and starting times will be in your driver packet to be picked up by you the day before your selected trails depart the Fairgrounds. 


We will be adding more vendors to the 3-day Vendor Show. We will also be adding new trails and features to the event. Stay tuned for updates. On Friday, each attendee (18 years and older) will have a card that will have all our Vendors’ logos on it. Once you have visited every booth and received a sticker you can enter the card in a free drawing for valuable prizes.


This Event is organized and run by the very dedicated volunteers from non-profit 501 (c)(3) organizations. Desert Roads and Trails Society (Desert RATS) manages the event with substantial assistance from Utah Public Lands Alliance (UPLA). Last year, thanks to all our sponsors and attendees, we were able to donate $50,000 to UPLA, Utah 4 Wheel Drive Association, Washington County Search and Rescue, and Share Trails/Blue Ribbon Coalition. These groups work tirelessly to keep our trails open, safe and available to our sport.

The price per trail is $50.

 Notice: During the three days of the event, Sand Mountain Recreation Area (SMRA) trails used by the Winter 4x4 Jamboree will be CLOSED to non-participants during the hours of 8 am to 4 pm. The sand dunes and access roads will remain open to the public. The list of trails used by the Winter 4x4 Jamboree can be found here.

FLAGS ARE REQUIRED FOR ALL SAND MOUNTAIN TRAILS! Trail Flags can be purchased on site.  Other merchandise can be purchased at our store herePlease note that Jamboree apparel is available on-line for pick-up at the event but there will be no apparel sales on site.
