Nordic Rec Masters Clinic

The Nordic Rec Masters clinic switched gears today onto classic cross country skis to ski right thru the snowstorm this
morning. It was a winter wonderland at Teton Pines Nordic, with many useful tips on how to ride the glide, keep weight over the front foot, naturally swing the arms, keep the head up, and more.
Next clinic: Thursday Jan 31st, will be a Skate Day!

Trail Creek Report

It’s Snowing!  How Will We Ever Ski?

It’s dumping today at Trail Creek and if you are a skate skier, it could be challenging.  There was about 6 inches of new snow at the beginning of grooming and another 6 has fallen during grooming.  As of 12:30 PM the wind was calm, temperature -1ºC/31ºF, and the snowfall was heavy.

Today’s Pisten Bully grooming reworked all the fields, Woolsey Woods, Moose Loop, and Armin’s on out to Boiler and back with double or triple passes complete with fresh classic tracks.  While classic skiers were all smiles, a couple of hardy skaters looked a bit flustered as the morning’s initial grooming was rapidly disappearing.  Today is the last day of Wilson Winter sports and they seemed to be overjoyed by the bountiful snow.   All in all snow is a really good thing when you are a skier and if you  have time to come out to witness first hand this epic snowfall you won’t be sorry.

Groomer’s choice for today is Armin’s

Turpin Meadow Ranch Grooming Report

Last Updated: 1/16 @ 4pm

We had a light dusting of snow Wednesday, and they are calling for intermittent snow showers throughout the day on Thursday. Our groomers will be out in the morning to keep the corduroy fresh. It’ll be a great day for the classic skis and snowshoes!

8:20am: The school fields and the levee are groomed but getting covered up quickly with new snow. Make sure to get out early! I am starting Stilson now and should be done around 10:30.
10:10am: Stilson is groomed but filling in quickly. So make sure to get out this morning before the snow piles up too much. Also a reminder; Upper Cache Creek, past the 2.5 mile mark, and Game Creek cannot be groomed if low elevation avy danger is considerable or higher.

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!

The pow-pow party is here, bottomless days are near and the guests are all in good cheer! With significant snow for, at least, the next week, there will be PLENTY of snowy, deep runs on the mountain. The only required dress for this party are the widest, floatiest sticks you have at hand; with 6″ in the last 24 hrs, up to 8″ today, and 23″ by Saturday evening onward you will need those big-boy boards and skis to stay on top. Have a hoot out there today!
