Nordic Luminary: Jim Roscoe

The editorial board at JHNordic.com, after much discussion, has come up with this definition of a Nordic luminary—a local Nordic skier who has both accomplished great things in Nordic skiing as well as contributed to the local Nordic community. Jim Roscoe is one such person. 

“Tone it down,” Jim said… “I just stumbled into this. Don’t make me out to be anything special.” 

I asked Jim what he would suggest to people just getting into cross country. He recommends just getting out there and trying some of the excellent groomed Nordic tracks in the valley and supporting their grooming efforts. Coaching for kids and good lessons for grownups new to the sport are good ideas also.

I enjoyed getting to know Jim Roscoe better. He is an interesting and modest guy. And—don’t listen to him—he truly is one of Jackson Hole’s Nordic luminaries.


Countdown to The JH Nordic Annual Event!

We haven’t hosted this event in two years and we are so excited to invite you to join this 5th Annual FREE Nordic Community Event at Turpin Meadow Ranch on Sunday, January 8th, 2023! We are just 7 days away from the event so to celebrate let’s countdown with 7 reasons to attend (a new reason will be featured each day this week).

Trail Creek

Grooming Daily
Last Update: 12/31

New Year’s Eve

As we ski into a new year, you’ll discover a winter wonderland today at Trail Creek.  Overnight 6-10 inches of pretty heavy snow has graced our trails, once again painting the landscape a brilliant white.  As of report time the sun was peeking out a bit giving the indication that perhaps the storm might be winding down, however, the forecast still calls for quite a bit more in the next 36 hours so time will tell.

Of note today, the US Cross Country Ski Championships in Houghton, Michigan are getting under way.  A small crew of JHSC athletes and coaches are there to participate in this amazing event.  While serious racing and live streaming doesn’t get going until January 2nd, you can find all the details as well as streaming links at this link.

Today’s grooming was with the Husky and reworked most every trail.  An early morning start began in the woods with fresh classic tracks being placed universally.  The fields were then buffed out towards the end of grooming.  Double passes occurred on Moose Loop, Homesite, Suicide and major field trails.  While a couple inches of snow did fall since the beginning of grooming, all in all you should be able to have a great time skiing yourself into the new year.

Groomer’s choice for today is Homesite.


Teton Co./Jackson Parks & Rec

No Grooming Today
Last Update: 12/31

The levee and stilson are groomed and in good shape. Ski everything early to beat the accumulating snow! The school fields will not be groomed today. The pistenbully is down. Next week’s grooming will most likely occur with our snowmobile and pull behind.


Cache Creek Singletrack

Groomed by Friends of Pathways
Grooming Schedule: As Needed

Last Update: 12/28
Poor grooming conditions. machine tracks were digging deep into the base and the tiller could not cover them up without causing other issues because of all the rain and warm temperatures yesterday. Skiing will be somewhat poor with uneven conditions. The next few days are forecasted to be colder so the bases should firm up allowing me to groom on Friday.
