February 8, 2023 Nature Update

Provided by Cathy Shill founder of The Hole Hiking Experience

“I wonder if the snow loves the trees and fields that it kisses them so gently? And then it covers them up snug, you know, with a white quilt; and perhaps, it says, “Go to sleep darlings, til the summer comes again.” -Lewis Carroll

What a weekend with a bright full moon, fresh snow, sun and warmer temperatures.  Hope you all saw the full moon which was big and bright. In the early mornings, it shined in the western sky.

Each tour, our guides choose an interpretive theme to share with others. We pick a topic that inspires us and share supportive facts to give the tour fluidity and cohesion. A favorite subject is the snow world which is a temporary ecosystem that is created each year in Jackson Hole. Nivean means relating to snow and snow is referred to as the nivean environment. As we experience winter, we share characteristics of this environment with an introduction, supporting facts and conclusion.

The nivean environment is divided into the subnivean, intranivean and supranivean. Subnivean is the area between the ground and the bottom of the snowpack.

Once winter begins and we have about 6-8 inches of snow, the ground becomes insulated, and temperatures remain close to freezing or 32 degrees. Many rodents live in the subnivean zone moving through snow tunnels, feeding on grasses and creating living areas. Intranivean is within the snow so where weasels or grouse will tunnel. Snow provides insulation and protection from predators. Supranivean is above the surface of the snow. Moose and bison are examples of animals that live and survive above the snowpack.

Nature shares a story and we share that story with others. Connecting to the landscape enriches our lives and deepens our passion for nature. This new understanding builds stewardship and the wish to protect our natural resources.  As Chief Seattle said in 1854, “This we know….the earth does not belong to man, man belongs to the earth. All things are connected..” It’s a joy to share nature, deepen connections and create lasting memories. www.holehike.com 307.690.4453

Trail Creek

Grooming Daily
Last Update: 2/9

A Beautiful Day
It’s truly a beautiful day at Trail Creek today, with bluebird skies, warm winds, smooth corduroy, and everything you need to have a wonderful ski. Indeed, several groups were already out enjoying themselves and having a great time, including the Master’s Clinic! There were also some hilarious antics seen recently from the Lollipopper Team, who were experimenting with variations on dog sledding techniques; looks like a lot of fun! Thanks, Kathleen!

Today’s grooming was a complete double pass over the Moose Chase course, bringing us to full race condition in preparation for the race on Saturday! Also groomed was the Stadium, Lollipopper Land, Gut Flop, and the East Fields, which will serve as a warm-up loop for the race. Notably, due to lack of demand, there are currently no Classic tracks on the course, so strap on those skate skis and get gliding. Classic tracks have been set on the East Fields.

Groomer’s Choice is the East Fields Woods.

Shooting Star

Grooming Daily
Last Update: 2/9
The course received heavy drifting overnight and we will be taking advantage of the additional snow coverage to do a mid-season refresh of sorts on the trails today. Aggressive grooming will be ongoing through 10am, with holes 3-9 being the last holes to worked over, which will likely begin around 830am. Today’s grooming will help set us up for the upcoming spring snowprofile shift that typically occurs towards the end of the month. Skiing should be very enjoyable today and look for temps to get above 0*F around lunchtime.

Please help support trail grooming in GTNP by donating to the Grand Teton National Park Foundation. It’s easy and encouraged. All you need to do is visit: GTNPF.org/donate/ and leave the comment “Nordic” in the designation section.

We received some fluff overnight that groomed extremely well this morning with the ginzu. We reset the skate lane this morning and the classic track is still in great shape.
