Skate ski Tuesday.  Gorgeous.  COLD (0 degrees at 10:30).  Had the entire trail to myself except for 2 horseback riders who created some divots in the trail. – Andrea R.

New Blog Post: Fat Bike and E-Bike Winter Trail Etiquette

Many of the Jackson area trails are multi-use with hikers, dogs, skiers, snowmobiles and fat bikers all recreating in close proximity. With the privilege of using the trails comes a high level of responsibility for all users in order to avoid conflicts.

Adding Up!

The snow depth is in the 30 inch deep range back in the woods today with more on the way for the next few weeks; when you are fan of things Nordic, it is truly amazing to be able to access such bountiful snowfall.  The deep white stuff is going to get nothing but deeper in the next few days with quite a bit more on the way.

As of 11 AM snowfall was continuing this morning with up to two inches having been received, the wind was calm, and the temperature was -9ºC/16ºF. The Pisten Bully was having a spa day

today with a little bit of crack therapy but is expected to return tomorrow re-energized and ready to go.  The Ginzu Groomer made nice work of today’s champagne powder, making two skate laps on most trails although the snow is light enough that even untouched sections can be skated quite easily.  Classic tracks are untouched but should provide good progress as well.

There was a major moose convention this morning in the Beaver Pond area with a pair of cows and calves hanging out.  They were last seen moseying towards the ranch so shouldn’t cause too much trouble.

Groomer’s choice for today is Black Hole.

There are a few flakes falling as I write this, we’re expecting light snow this morning and lovely trail conditions all day long. The fat bike single track is in great condition and we will keep it groomed through this up coming storm. Aaron rode it yesterday and had so much fun, he won’t stop talking about it!

Trails continue to groom out well and should provide enjoyable skiing. Anticipate the track to accumulate new snow after our morning groom along with some possible drifting as plenty of the white stuff is projected to fall through Thursday. Outlook is for heavy to moderate snowfall to continue over the weekend. Enjoy!

Next Update: Friday

1″ and more on the way! Slow and steady wins the race, they say. I think we can all agree that, there are few things better than looking at the 7-day forecast and seeing nothing but those snowflakes pictured in that photo descriptor box, every. single. day.
