Turpin Meadows Ranch Nordic groomed trails is made up of 7 connected loops, all centering around the core of the Ranch, on the edge of the Buffalo Fork Creek in northern Jackson Hole/west side of Togwotee Pass. TMR is open to day and overnight guests, and offers breakfast, lunch and dinner in the newly renovated historic ranch lodge. Reports so far this season (their 1st) is that the food is excellent, thanks to a new experienced chef.

As marked on the illustrated map, one can ski on one or more groomed trail loops, which range in length from the Lodge and Cabin Loop ( .53 mile) to the Willows Loop (1.2 miles) to Riverside loop (1.66 + .8 access road mile out and back mileage) and the Summer Homes loop (3.13 miles) north around the full Turpin Meadow and creek.

The Lower Pasture and Mule Pasture Loops are listed as a combined, separate trail in JHNordic (3.2 miles on the perimeter or 5.5 miles with all the connector trails included).

TMR maintains the groomed trails regularly with its own on-site grooming equipment, and offers skate and classic skiing, along with snowshoeing into the surrounding Bridger Teton National Forest. Owned and operated by former Olympic Nordic skiers, Hans and Nancy Johnstone, TMR is a cosy, rustic Nordic and winter trail getaway well worth the travel. The dog friendly, kid friendly family atmosphere is like having your own nordic lodge in the wilderness. Nordic equipment rental, tours and lessons are available.
