Daily Trail Report Spring Schedule

As winter trail grooming is wrapping up, the JH Nordic Daily Trail Report will be transitioning towards a spring schedule which means beginning Monday, April 3 updates will happen a little less frequently. You can expect emails Mondays, Thursdays, and Saturdays until April 15 (which will be the final winter trail post of the 2022/23 winter season). You can still stay up to date on opened groomed trails and last grooming dates anytime by checking the grooming page. On May 6th we will shift to monthly JH Nordic Trail Reports delivered on the 1st Saturday of each month until late November when snow covered trails return!

Spot the cyclist! Teton Park Road open to cycling- closed to vehicles – Ride your bike through a winter wonderland!

Wondering what the weather is like at Taggart trailhead and cycling out to Jenny Lake? Check it out via the JH Nordic-GTNP webcam on the JHNordic.com Home page.

The Teton Park Road is now plowed from Taggart to Jenny Lake and on the north end, from Signal Mountain Lodge to North Jenny/String Lake road intersection. You can see how high the snow walls are in the photo, with the head of the cyclist just visible (around 4 1/2 ft!). Enjoy the vehicle-free experience from now until May 1st!

Spring Season Kicks Off with Partial Opening of Park Road to Recreational Activities

The Teton Park Road between Taggart Lake Trailhead and Signal Mountain Lodge will partially open to activities such as walking, biking and skating beginning Friday, April 7 at 9 a.m. Visitors will be able to recreate on approximately four miles of the road heading north from the Taggart Lake parking lot to Jenny Lake junction. In the northern part of the park, visitors may also access approximately five miles of the Teton Park Road from Signal Mountain Lodge to the Scenic Drive junction. For safety reasons, visitors are reminded to avoid going beyond the barricades marking the closed sections of roadway. Once the entire road is open, the park will issue notifications on Facebook and Twitter. The 14-mile section of road will open to motor vehicle traffic on May 1, weather permitting. Please use caution, as snow and ice may persist on some sections of the road creating slick conditions. Visitors should also be alert for park vehicles and heavy equipment that travel this road as spring opening operations continue.

Trip Report: Taggart area spring exploration: cottonwood creek river bottom

We went to Taggart trailhead to check out the crust. Instead, we found 3-4 inches of wind-packed fresh snow on the surface. Not ready for crust-cruising, but beautiful to ski through. With Teton Park road open up to Jenny Lake, there are many fun options to bike, walk the road, and nordic ski (classic for now, skate and classic once the crust sets up)! Enjoy the sunshine and deep blue skies!

In Grand Teton, Moose-Wilson Road road closure begins April 10

Nordic skiers who love to ski to Phelps Lake or LSR Preserve from Granite Canyon trailhead parking area need to get out this week! Grand Teton National Park will close the road between Granite Canyon trail head and LSR Preserve entrance starting April 10th, to resume construction of the Moose-Wilson Road upgrade.

Skiers and snowshoers (as long as the snow lasts) and eventually hikers can access both locations via the north from Moose.

Trail Creek

Grooming has Ended for the Season
Last Update:
Thanks For A Beautiful Season!
It’s been a beautiful day, and a beautiful season. Near-record snows have kept us going in perfect condition far beyond the average, making every day a gift we should truly stop and take a moment to appreciate. Alas, all good things must come to an end, and today, Trail Creek had its final grooming of the season. The last of the signs and markers were pulled last night, leaving Trail Creek clean and unblemished. A few signs were lost under the snow, so if any start to pop out later in the season, please bring them back up to the cabin; it would be much appreciated!

Today’s grooming was a near-total double pass over all the trails in the system, the Husky doing its utmost to bring every single trail to perfection before entering its long hibernation over the summer. This includes Woolsey Woods, Moose Poop Loop, Moose Loop, Déjà vu, Animal Farm, Black Hole, Boiler, Mugs Meadow, the East Fields, and the Close Fields. Take advantage of it while you can, there’s an unbelievable amount of new snow on the way!

A massive thank you to the many, many people who help make grooming at Trail Creek possible!

  • The Coaches, who help introduce new generations to the joys of Nordic skiing.
  • The ski teams, who put in enormous effort to be the best they can be.
  • The people who work behind the scenes, building the framework we need to function.
  • The donors, who provide the resources needed to make Trail Creek a success.
  • The landowners, who generously allow us to use their property.
  • The volunteers, who offer up priceless time to keep Jackson Hole the skiing treasure it is.
  • And most importantly: You! Without the skiers, none of this would be possible.
  • A special thanks to Groomer 1; without your constant advice and guidance, this season could never have been as good as it was.
  • Thanks to all of you, and we hope to see you next season!

Signing off, Groomer 2(and, by proxy, Groomer 1).
