SKI REPORTS


Softer ski and bike trails will probably be the rule today with the fresh snow although few will complain as the new snow will result in a good season just getting better.  A quiet weekend race wise is coming up so hopefully you can take advantage and have your own Nordic or biking adventure.  Just around the corner are the Santa Relays December 22 at Teton Pines and the Betty Woolsey Classic December 29 at Trail Creek.  You can see the entire Sandbag Schedule here.

Good Report from Pinedale

Pinedale XC trails seems fine. Usually everything is groomed up Friday afternoon for the weekend and then again on Monday for the weekday skiers. (Which is usually only me and a few others)

Here’s a picture of my wife and kiddo enjoying he trails last weekend.

Hopefully with this new snow a few of the twigs and shrubs will get covered up for this weekend.

Phillips Canyon Report-Follow the Christmas Tree Tracks

The christmas tree draggers are out. Trails are short but sweet. Try going up Phillips Canyon from Fish creek on your fat stuff. Trees are great groomers.

GROOMING REPORTS


Trail Creek Grooming Report

Last updated: 12/11

Fresh and Fast!
Overnight up to two inches of serious snow has fallen across our trail network at Trail Creek, just enough to freshen up things nicely! With the combination of firm base underneath plus warm, wet, and fresh Pisten Bully corduroy on top, you will find some nice skiing today.

Noon conditions were partly cloudy, a light breeze, and temperature of -3ºC/26ºF. All recently groomed trails received best line Pisten Bully grooming and classic tracks were reset in the close field, Woolsey Woods, and Moose Loop. Look for significant snow overnight, keep your fingers crossed as 6 inches plus could bring in universal classic tracks and East Field grooming.

Groomer’s choice for today is Woolsey Woods.

Shooting Star Grooming Report

Last Updated: 12/8

Conditions remain great and should provide fun skiing through the weekend. Outlook is calling for some new snow accumulations for the middle of next week, which may finally allow us to set classic tracks…keep your fingers crossed! Next update will likely be this Wednesday.

Below are some other details:

  • Tight corners may be soft/rough  as its difficult for the grooming equipment to navigate through them(Example: Sharp Turn from 8 Green to 9 Tees)
  • Early Season Conditions Persist (Rocky/grassy/Inconsistent profile depth & compaction)
  • Be aware of soft spots
  • No Classic Track will be set until snowpack increases
  • Conditions will improve as more snow accumulates
  • Grooming frequencies may vary depending on snow conditions

Enjoy!

Teton Co./Jackson Parks & Rec Grooming Report

Last Updated: 12/11

10:45am: Stilson is finished and should be skiing well but there are a few thin spots starting to poke through in the classic track. Let’s hope we get a good amount of snow tonight!

8:30am: The school fields and the levee are finished. The skate lane at the school fields is in great shape but I am unable to set new classic tracks until we get more snow. Both classic and skate are in great shape at the levee. Stilson will be done around 10:30
