Creative Fun

What is there to do when the snow is hard? Build an igloo and bake a cake of course! While that almond cake has more powder on it than we’ve seen since the end of December, there is snow in the forecast starting Monday night.

We love Grand Teton NP! Sun, skate, and sweetheart. See our trip on Relive!

Trail Creek

Last Update: 2/13

Thanks, Thanks, and More Thanks!

Thanks to the athletes, coaches, parents, volunteers, JHCS supporters, and any of our skiers who might have had to change their schedule for pulling together and allowing us to host a record breaking junior national qualifier!  Not only did we have more participants than any race in our history, we are sending a record number of JHSC athletes to Junior Nationals in Minneapolis March 6-12.  Thank you so much!

The talented athletes that have earned a berth at this venerable event include: Sydney Wilmot, Kate Brigham, Natalie O’Brien, Elsie Hall, Will Johnson, Peter Warner, Mason Wheeler, Bridger Stiles, Lena Poduska, Jacob Collins, Nate Streubel, Lucas Wilmot and Colton Petsch, way to go skiers!  All the racing results are available at Summit Timing and the interesting and complicated spreadsheet showing the season’s scoring is available at this IMD Nordic page.

In 24 hours Trail Creek has gone from a bustling hive of activity, back to its normal peaceful state.  The banners, tents, fences, and all other racing paraphernalia have all been put away so that you’d never even know an enormous race had just transpired.  The Husky has also been hard at work, grooming over all the evidence of the previous days with only a couple of moose as spectators.

Today’s grooming actually began last night with a single pass through pretty much every trail in the woods.  On that pass a fresh classic track was set in almost all locations as well.  Grooming continued this morning with multiple passes through the fields on the normal trails with fresh classic tracks and skate lanes everywhere.  The snow is a bit tired, but groomed up nicely.  It does look like we’ll get a little snow this week with about 2 inches forecast to begin Tuesday night.

Groomer’s choice for today is laps in the sunny fields.

Shooting Star

Grooming Daily
Last Update: 2/9

Sunny and dry weather is again forecasted through this weekend continuing to provide very enjoyable Nordic Conditions. Be aware that some icy areas are forming, and the snowpack is now hard packed from the lack of fresh snow. It’s now been about 30+ days since we’ve received any meaningful snow accumulations and this dry weather pattern looks to continue for the foreseeable future. The track would greatly benefit from another 1-2ft of fresh snow to get us through the late part of the season. Until more snow returns, we’ll try our best to work/groom the snow as best we can with the limitations of the current snowpack.  Overall, skiing should remain great! Get outside and make the most out of these rare sunny winter days! Next Update Monday (2/14).
