GTNP Winter Wildlife Closure Update

Grand Teton National Park has provided an update on its winter wildlife closures – see Map, so we ask that you take note and respect these closures, as wildlife need plenty of space to survive these last months of winter.
A reminder: for the Bar BC Ranch non-groomed trail from Taggart trailhead, the Bar BC Ranch itself is in the wildlife closure, as it sits at the river level of the Snake River, a place of wildlife habitat. Please do not venture off the meadow level “bench” down to the Ranch, nor the river level. The closure starts at the gate/top of the lower bench.

For details on the upper meadow level trail, see: Taggart to ABOVE Bar BC Ranch Trail

Snake River Sporting Club:
Grooming Daily

We recommend that you call prior to going to check on grooming for that day. 307-733-3444.

Trail Creek Nordic

Last Updated: 2/9

Cabin Calf!
This little bull calf was perfectly content to be hanging around the cabin this morning.  No sign of momma moose so who knows the whole story; this could be Number 20’s calf just striking out on his own.  Even though he was very quiet, never forget to give our moose plenty of room as they have big hard feet that can be very dangerous. 

Skiing today at Trail Creek is a bit of a mixed bag.  The winds are clipping along at a good pace with the result being that the fields are drifting in quite quickly.  The woods however are protected from the wind and are skiing nicely. 

The Pisten Bully did reset classic tracks in the fields this morning along with some limited grooming in the woods, then grooming was wrapped up with the Ginzu groomer with skate grooming on almost every trail.  Unfortunately we are having some minor problems with the Pisten Bully which will limit its use for hopefully a short time but we will do all that we can to keep the skiing good with limited use of the Pisten Bully alongside the snow machine grooming tools. 

You might notice a few new trails in the Armin’s and Moose Loop areas.  Our hosts the Seiffert’s are coming this weekend to their A frame cabin in the woods and the trail is so that they can get to their cabin.  If you see them be sure to wave as we are skiing on their property which we greatly appreciate. 

Groomer’s choice for today is Armin’s.

Stilson is groomed although it is drifting back in quickly. The levee and the school fields will see lots of drifting today also.

The school fields and the levee are groomed and in good shape. Stilson will be done around 10:45.

Wind will likely continue to dominate the storyline as another storm cycle is planned to move in on Thursday. We continue to get the trails smooth each morning, but would anticipate that skiing may be more enjoyable with a classic or touring setup if windy conditions exist. Next update will be Thursday 2/11. Enjoy!

  • Morel Mushroom Foraging in the Tetons
    Let’s make lemonade out of lemons.. the lemonade being morel mushrooms and the lemons being the lingering cold temperatures (snow, sleet, and hail). What comes with so much needed precipitation are morels! Morel mushrooms are fungi that grow in the filtered light of forests. These oddly shaped mushrooms graze the valley floor and make for a fun activity for the whole family. Walking through the woods or floating the Snake River with a keen eye… Read More
