Turpin Meadow Ranch Opening Weekend!

We are proud to say that all of our trails have been groomed, including our fat bike single track! The summer homes loop is thin on the far side from the ranch and there are willows poking up in places. In general we’d all love more snow but the views of the Teton and Absaroka Mountains can’t be beat. The lodge is decorated for the season and the staff is ready to serve you!

GROOMING REPORTS


Trail Creek Grooming Report

Last updated: 12/15

Working for You!
The Pisten Bully was hard at it early this lovely Saturday morning ensuring that your weekend Nordic ski will be as rewarding as possible.  Overnight an amazing warm up occurred starting from a low of around zero to the current temperature of -2ºC/29ºF.  While earlier the wind was moderate, as of 9 AM it has calmed and forecast sunshine throughout the day promises a top Nordic ski outing.

All trails received Pisten Bully best line skate grooming while the close field received a total classic and skate reset.  The majority of woods classic tracks are pretty good.  We are still waiting for the OK to groom the East Fields but with the Betty Woolsey Classic race just two weeks away hopefully the go ahead will come soon. 

Groomer’s choice for today is the close field.
