Best of Fat Bike Fun

Fat biking is a super fun way to explore snow-covered winter trails and pathways, especially when the snow is firm and packed (like it will be this week!). Did you know there are over 40 fat bike friendly trails in Jackson Hole and Teton Valley? That means there are so many opportunities to get to and explore, so get out there and have a good time!

On the subject of Fat Biking, there is a raffle going on to support Friends of Pathways grooming of the Cache Creek Fat Bike Trails. Thanks to some very generous local businesses and JH Nordic , donors to this campaign will be entered into a raffle for awesome prizes, including:

· An overnight stay for 2 people at Turpin Meadows Ranch  including two trail passes and Nordic ski, snow shoe or fat bike rentals
· A pair of Rossignol Delta Sport skate skis with bindings from Skinny Skis
· A half day XC ski or snowshoe tour for 2 in Grand Teton National Park with JH Ecotour Adventures
· A half day fat bike tour for 2 with Teton Mountain Bike Tours
· A half day XC ski or snowshoe tour for 2 in Grand Teton National Park with Hole Hiking Experience

Checking out the Husky!

Coach Will was checking out the luxurious passenger seat in the Husky today on an exploratory venture throughout the Trail Creek network.  If you haven’t already done so, you might want to check out some of the new routing that was explored today in the Armin’s area; it could now be a nice little side diversion on your daily ski outing.  Some new routing was also placed in the Close Field today in preparation for next month’s junior national qualifier race; a skier could plan a pretty long workout just checking out every trail in the Close Field with the current configuration.

Otherwise today’s Husky grooming hit pretty much every trail with the classic tracks being reworked on the narrower sections.  The snow is very firm and should get faster as the temps warm this afternoon.

It is a busy week at Trail Creek with the following schedule:

Shooting Star

Grooming Daily
Last Update: 1/10

Today was the last day for grooming with our snowcat/pistenbully as it will be taken to Utah for repairs and hopefully returned early next week (approximately 1/17- 1/19). In the meantime, we’ll be grooming the yellow loop with our snowmobile using the ginzu implement. The trails are to be groomed about 2 ginzu passes wide each day. Note, the snowmobile & ginzu implement will struggle to get around but it should assist the trails from glazing over. That being said…skiers should anticipate that trails will become hardpacked and icy while snowmobile grooming is occurring this week.  

Lastly, please see the attached GPS Trail Map that Benton created to assist skiers for navigating our Nordic trails. There are also instructions attached, but essentially use the QR code on the map using a smart phone and then touch the location icon to see a live/interactive GPS dot. Throughout the next several days we’ll be mounting a laminated copy of this map to all our dog stations. Skiers can then use their smartphone and bring up the interactive map interactive map via the QR code… or also just look at the physical laminated map to see where they are located as it will have a “You are here” icon on these mounted maps. Again, this map is attached above and would recommend sharing/printing these trail maps to all daily skiers, which should greatly reduce disoriented people especially during stormy weather.

Enjoy the skiing this week as it looks to be calm and sunny. Next update will be Friday (1/14).

Singletrack grooming has been delayed due to several factors. We were short on equipment, but TVTAP’s new singletrack specific grooming snowmobile is just about ready rally with all the necessary accessories and adjustments to begin working the trails. We were short on operators because some of the crew has been up in Island Park participating and helping with the Fat Pursuit race. Congratulations to those who participated! We are motivated to build you some world class winter singletrack trails. Thanks for your patience and stay tuned for the latest update and conditions.

Time: 11am-12:30pm

We’ll improve our glide on skate skis and learn to be more efficient uphill, downhill, and review the different skating strides. These clinics are for those with some skate skiing experience who would like to improve. We will cover more than the basics to get you skating longer distances with ease and going up and down hills with proficiency and confidence. Each session will be part instruction with plenty of time to ski and practice. $50/Clinic or $135 for all 3 ($45/Clinic for Teton Pines Nordic Center season pass holders). Rentals available for $35. Trail pass is included.

Instructor: Kim Springer Kim grew up warming her fingers in the Octagon on Mt. Mansfield in Stowe, Vermont.
