Grand Teton Park Road Information

Friday, March 15 was the last day of grooming in GTNP. The trail should stay in excellent shape for a few days at least. The crust is starting to set up as well, so take advantage of the lovely weekend to get in some of the last groomed experience from Taggart to Signal OR Signal to Taggart!

Starting Monday no road skiing will be allowed as the park begins snow removal. If you go skiing or snowshoeing close to the side of the road exercise caution to avoid snow and debris being thrown great distances from snow removal equipment. Read the article on Buckrail for more information on the last weekend for snow activities on Teton Park Road.


Pro Tips from Nordic Experts (continued)

More daylight and warmer temperatures, plus the fitness built up by this point in the season, make for great opportunities to keep advancing as a skier. Better technique and endurance usually means more fun on longer adventures. Plus this past week’s warm days and cool nights have started the crust cycle on both sides of the Tetons, and long crust cruises on a bluebird day are amazing! Here is another round of tips from local experts to help inspire your skiing.

Crust Cruising

As noted above, some groomers are parking their equipment for the season. With a few less groomed tracks, warm days and cold nights it’s time to start thinking about crust cruising: classic or skate skiing over endless open meadows on top of the firm snow crust in the mornings between too firm/icy and too wet/slushy.

The first report of crust cruising for the season came in on Friday afternoon: “beautiful afternoon ski across the open fields around Moran row. The bonus today was hearing a wolf and then seeing it in the distance.”


First unofficial Yellowstone grizzly sighting of the year reported by wildlife watcher

Article: Buckrail // Photo: @kaptainkyle90
Spring must be on its way, because the bears are starting to emerge from their long winter naps.

The first grizzly bear sighting in Yellowstone National Park (YNP) was reported on Friday, March 8, by social media user Kyle Vetter, who lists himself as a park ranger, which has not been verified by YNP. The observer identified the bear as 781, though this remains unconfirmed.

Toodeloo Teewinots!
Yesterday was the final session of the year for Teewinots when the Tuesday-Thursday Teewinots got one last ski in for the season.  Lollipoppers and Ositos are done and the Juniors will be skiing at the middle school today for their last session, so things will be a bit quieter in the days to come.  Prep/Comp skiers still have training ahead although the official schedule has not been released yet.  Thanks to Coach Adam for sending in the great shot above.

We do still have the final race of the year, the International Spring Series March 30-April 1.  Barring a massive heat wave, grooming will continue until April 1.  At Lake Placid, NY racing is happening today, check it out at the event website or on the live webcam.

Today is a transition day at Trail Creek. The Husky was out this morning on an abbreviated route, mainly washing out the tracks from yesterday’s practice.  Trails groomed include the fields, Grunt, Moose Poop, Moose Loop, and Homeward and Outward Bound.  The results were a little chunky, but will ski fine.  As temps warm, skiing on the rest of the trails should also be nice.

Next grooming will be this evening and will continue in the evenings until the weather changes.  Looking forward, if early morning is your skiing time, head for the fields where the crust is skiing nicely, mid-day skiers will be able to enjoy the sunny trails as the temps warm, and afternoon skiers should find nice skiing in the woods.  Grooming might shift to every other day next week depending on the Prep/Comp schedule; this will be reported ahead of time in the grooming report which will be posted early morning after evening grooming.

Groomer’s choice for today is to enjoy the warm spell.

We just completed an afternoon groom so please don’t ski on it until Friday morning (3/15). It is soft now but will set up (freeze) overnight and be fast and firm in the morning. 9am = fast, 11am = medium, and 2pm = slow, later than that…probably very soft and very slow. 

We groom approximately 16km of track for both skate and classic daily. We have a full retail and rental shop. We offer lessons daily. Call us with questions and to book lessons: (307) 732-4130. To keep our track in pristine shape for skiing we do not allow dogs, walking, snowshoeing, or fatbikes.

Spring’s just around the corner and Golf Maintenance is scheduled to conduct our annual practice of applying black sand on the greens that naturally aids in melting the snow. Based on the upcoming forecast, we anticipate temporarily switching to evening trail grooming which allows us to perform maintenance on the greens during the mornings. Evening grooming begins at 5:30 pm and all skiers need to be off the trails by this time. Reminder, that conditions may be icier during the morning hours throughout the final portion of the season. Below is an approximate outline of the upcoming Maintenance schedule during March 13-18 (Weather & Equipment pending):

  1. Wednesday (3/13): Evening Grooming begins at 5:30 pm, skiers need to be off the trails.
  2. Thursday & Friday: The snow on the greens will be packed down via our snowcat during the morning and early afternoon hours. Evening Grooming will begin at 5:30 pm daily, skiers need to be off the trails.
  3. Saturday, Sunday, and Monday: Black sand will be applied to the greens during the morning hours. Evening Grooming will begin at 5:30 pm daily, skiers need to be off the trails.
  4. Tuesday (3/19): Grooming switches back to mornings, pending completion of maintenance practices.

Note, skiers may encounter some rough sections caused by equipment hauling materials to the Golf Maintenance facility, but skiing conditions should remain enjoyable throughout this process. This is a time sensitive operation and needed to be performed during this timeframe, as above average temperature are forecasted next week. Thanks.

Turpin Meadow Ranch

Grooming Daily
Last Update: 3/15
Saturday’s groom happened Friday evening with a ginzu pass over the skate lane. Variable spring like conditions exist and they are ever changing throughout the day. Over all the course is firm and fast, especially in the morning. When things heat up in the afternoon sunny parts of the trail will be soft/slushy.

Ideally you can bring your quiver of equipment and waxes and enjoy a multi sport day. If I was spending a day on the winter trails at Turpin this weekend I’d be biking around 9am for an hour or two. I’d then switch to my Nordic skis and explore all of the trails. After that I’d head into the lodge for to refuel and exchange stories with my friends. Bottom line, your best bet is to ski or bike in the early part of the day and enjoy an afternoon aprés on the patio looking at the Tetons.

Sunday’s groom will happen Saturday afternoon. Please also be aware that the road crossings on the summer homes and riverside loops are down to pavement so you will need to remove skis to get across. 

TMR is open to the public daily for skiing, meals, Nordic lessons, and tours! Call the office (307) 543-2000 or visit our website to book your adventure! Check out our live webcam for current conditions.

Groomed yeti and campground last night. Set the classic track on both of them. The quality of the classic track on yeti is variable. Shallow and crumbly in places. Everything should have set up well and the skiing should be fast this morning. Centennial pathway groomed for skate and classic on Thursday. Enjoy!

Singletrack: 3/15
Groomed the powerline, grumpy connector, and the hillbenders. We are in “ride early, ride cold” season for sure. The shift in daylight has also brought out a ton of people with dogs (first time we have seen any this season) but remember the forest service rules do not allow dogs in Mike Harris during the winter months. Thanks!
