Last Day for GTNP Grooming this Sunday

Last day for GTNP grooming is this Sunday. Last full groom from Taggart to Signal and back is this Friday. Many thanks to Grand Teton National Park Foundation for underwriting this outstanding grooming service, and for all the community donations and support contributed.

Thanks also the the volunteer GTNP Nordic Ambassadors who assisted on this iconic trail.

Wrapping up Festivities and Top Ten Finishes!

This is the last week of practice and things are in a festive mood at Trail Creek!  BB gun biathlons, Nordic X’ing, and even a Trail Creek Cabin piñata are making for fun times as the season winds down.  Wednesday will be another big day with the final team practices on Thursday.  Thanks to Coaches Kathy and Ann for pictures!

That is not the end for all of our skiers as many are off to the Western Club Championships at Soldier Hollow in Utah this upcoming weekend and of course our huge field of national competitors are racing all week at Donner Summit in California.

Speaking of the national racers, yesterday was a great day with top 10 finishes and lots of great results in general.  All the results can be viewed at my race results, just search for Soda Springs, CA.

Today at Trail Creek while the practice schedule is a little lighter than Monday or Wednesday, there will be practices going on and if you are able to make it out you’ll be able to find some pretty nice skiing.  Conditions as of 11:15 AM are a temperature just below freezing, light to moderate winds, and cloudy skies. 

The Ginzu was hard at this morning working the inch of overnight snow into some pretty nice skate lanes.  Classic tracks were too hard to reset but will still work ok in many locations.  All in all things are pretty nice.

Groomer’s choice for today is Homesite.

Teton Pines Nordic

Last Updated: 3/10
Grooming Daily

Conditions are still good at Teton Pines even with the warm temps. We are still grooming daily with the snowcat Skate skiing will be awesome from around 9:30-11 until the warm temps soften and slow things a bit Classic skiing has been fast in the mornings and soft beginning around noon. We are in the typical spring freeze/thaw cycle which makes grooming the classic track a little challenging. Calling us is best for the most current conditions (307)733-1733. Softgoods are 20% off in the shop, so come in before it’s too late. Our closing is scheduled for March 20.

 


Shooting Star Nordic 

Last Updated: 3/6
Grooming Daily

Trails are in great shape and will favor fans of fast skate skiing. The recent warm weather has transitioned our snowpack into a hard-packed and icy surface. Due to the firmness of the snow, classic tracks will not be set today and likely for the remainder of the season. Also, skiers should anticipate icier/fast conditions in the mornings that should evolve to softer/slushy snow in the afternoons as the temperature warms. Outlook is calling for a wintery mix of rain & snow to pass through this weekend. Have fun and enjoy the spring conditions!

Next Update: Monday


Teton Village Pathway Trail

Update: 2/22

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

Jackson Hole Golf and Tennis Club

Update: 3/9

From our Nordic track maintenance team:

With rising temperatures and winter coming to an end, adjustments will be made to the route of the groomed trail. Beginning this past weekend, the trail will only be groomed on the north side of Spring Gulch Road.

This accomplishes two important things. For one, it allows us to extend the grooming period of the season because as the roadways clear it becomes increasing difficult and unsafe for the staff to cross the roads with grooming equipment. In addition, suspending grooming operations south of Spring Gulch Road helps us minimize disturbances to the local moose population. In general, please be extra mindful not to disturb wildlife during this important period for their winter survival.
