Trail Creek Report

Last Updated: 3/17

We Made It!

Ten races and thousands of training days; we’ve made it nearly to the end of the season, and sincere thank you goes out to all the volunteers and supporters that have contributed to a fantastic season. NO, we aren’t done skiing yet, but the races are done and the youth programs have wrapped up for the year. Last week’s amazing events finished up the racing season in grand style; enjoy some images of all the festivities below.

In addition to the USCSA event yesterday, a small but dedicated group of skiers finished the citizen racing season on a beautiful day as well, pictured below are the podium finishers of this year’s Sandbag Season Finale.

Today at Trail Creek the majority of the grooming focused on bringing back woods trails that had been abandoned recently because of the racing agenda. You will discover lots of fresh classic tracks with some trails a little soft and some a little firm, but all in all some nice skiing. The fields were largely untouched today, but as the afternoon warms should ski nicely. The best line double classic track from yesterday’s races is still all through the East Fields and could be an afternoon treat for classic skiers today.

Grooming is tentatively scheduled to continue to March 30th although the intensity will drop off somewhat for the last two weeks. Weather forecasts call for substantial warming moving forward which could result in afternoon grooming later in the week. The time of year to watch the thermometer for planning your ski outing is upon us. Next scheduled grooming will be Tuesday morning with probably a Wednesday afternoon after that. 1:00 PM conditions are sunny, calm and -2ºC/28ºF.

Teton Co./Jackson Parks & Rec Grooming Report
Last Updated: 3/16

9:15: The levee is groomed and in good shape. It is very firm as of now. Stilson will be done by 9:30 but classic tracks will be very shallow because of how firm the trails are after the recent free thaw cycles. The school fields will be done around 11:00.

Reset the skate lane. Did a couple of test runs of resetting Classic… no go. The tracks are a little beat up, but should still be quite good. ☘️ 🇮🇪 🍺

Yeti’s Loop

Grooming Schedule: As Needed
Last Updated: 3/13 @ 2am
Skate: Excellent  |  Classic: Excellent

Just finished grooming the Yeti. It always takes longer than anticipated…so much hair. Anyways, classic track is set for counter-clockwise skiing and the skate lane should be amazing. The trail is rather narrow so pay attention and stay in control.
Don’t forget about the orange donate button.

Enjoy!

LATEST JACKSON HOLE TRAIL REPORT

  • 9 Dec 22 – Daily Trail Report
    Help Protect Wintering Wildlife in Grand Teton Winter has arrived in Grand Teton National Park – an excellent time for recreation in the snow but also a challenging time for wildlife in and around the Tetons. Wildlife specialists are asking visitors to avoid disturbing animals by following all winter closures and voluntarily avoiding bighorn sheep winter zones. In all other areas of the park, visitors should still give wildlife plenty of space by maintaining 100… Read More
