Thank you for continually sharing your photos with us of Nordic skiing in Jackson Hole


Trip Report: Brooks Lake Lodge

Beautiful ski into Brooks Lake and the BL Lodge via the snow-covered, snowmobile packed road. Stunning views of the Pinnacles as one approaches the lake.

As Brooks Lake Lodge has become ultra popular with the snowmobile tour community, the Lodge was packed with dozens of snowmobilers and machines. No longer the tranquil skiers destination of the past.

Thank you Ian E. for the trail report and the photos!

Annual Cross Country Ski Areas Association Conference

April 7 – 8, 2020

Please join CCSAA at its Annual Conference April 7 & 8 at Bogus Basin in Boise, ID. The Conference is a great opportunity to not only listen to relevant speakers within our cross country community, but to spend time with other owner/operators of cross country ski areas, to get some great spring skiing and share ideas of what works and does not work.

This is an excellent forum to engage with all aspects of Cross Country – Nordic professionals, best practices, industry trends.

Trail Creek Nordic

Last Updated: 2/29
Grooming Daily

Leap Day!

An extra day and even on a Saturday! Leap into action and capitalize on what looks to be a grand day and make sure you have time for a great Nordic ski.

The state championships are in action as this grooming report is being posted. There was lots of good news yesterday from Pahaska Teepee Resort with three males and two females from Jackson topping the results of the first day’s freestyle racing. Kate Brigham and Natalie O’Brien took the number one and two female spots while Elijah Weenig, Mason Wheeler, and Samuel Johnson took the top three spots in the male division. Full results can be viewed at the High Plains Nordic site.

At Trail Creek today the Ginzu groomer was hard at it early this morning making sure that there will be plenty of good skiing. Our 2003 Pisten Bully is once again having some issues so for the time being grooming will primarily be with the Ginzu Groomer.

As of 9 AM the temperature was a balmy 0ºC/32ºF with mostly sunny skies and calm winds. Skate lanes are quite fast and while the Ginzu corduroy is not quite as photogenic as what the Pisten Bully can do, should actually skate quite nicely today. There is a bit of glazing in some of the classic tracks and some sections have significant moose or elk damage, but most are in good shape and the sunny tracks will ski very nicely as the day warms.

Groomer’s choice for today is the sunny fields.

The track is skiing great after some intensive grooming was warranted this past week to smooth things out from Monday’s wind event. Look for more enjoyable weather through Saturday afternoon followed by snowier conditions on Sunday. Have fun!


Teton Village Pathway Trail

Teton village pathway trail – groomed on Tuesday. Firm, packed snow.
 
 

Jackson Hole Golf and Tennis Club

Grooming Today
Update: 2/22

Skier Update: Trail is ‘ groomed’ – not perfectly smooth corduroy, more “flattened and rolled”. Occasionally, there is a classic cross-country track, sometimes not. Certainly a nice hour and bit around the golf course with great views, a fun place to ski if you are looking for a new flat, groomed trail to try out.

Groomed with classic track on Tuesdays, Thursdays, and Saturdays.


Grand Targhee Nordic & Fat Biking

2020: It’s not very often you get an extra day in ski season. One extra day means extra runs under sun in the morning, extra smiles after the runs and, as it turns out, an extra storm with some extra snow.

Cross Country/Fat Bike 15k: XC OPEN (Last groomed
2/27/2020), Fat Bike CLOSED.


Pinedale

Last Updated: 2/25

Nordic: Blue sky, wind finally settled down a little bit, -2F degrees. All trails above groomed this morning except for Flatline and Heart Attack. At least 2″ of new, wind-blown snow from yesterday. Have a great day!

Fat Bike 2/13: All Lower Kelly Park is groomed with a great riding base. Should be perfect conditions for the next 3-5 days due to high pressure system. For more information contact Geared Up, 307-399-5539 c.307-760-1912, www.gearedupbikes.com
