Trail Creek

Last Update 3/17

2023-2024 JHSC Junior Team!

Somewhere around 10 million ski tracks (number of skiers X strides/minute X minutes/practice X practice sessions) were made at Trail Creek this year by our 2023-2024 JHSC Nordic team, not to mention a bunch of great racing, companionship, and team work along the way, way to go Juniors, the grooming department loves grooming out your tracks!

There is still plenty of time for you to make at least a few hundred thousand tracks at Trail Creek in the final few weeks of the season.  If you head out today you will discover that the Husky was out late in the day yesterday, refreshing pretty much every trail.  A single skate/classic pass through the woods smoothed skate lanes nicely and refreshed classic tracks as did double passes through the fields.

Several reports from yesterday indicated that even though conditions varied quite a bit depending on the time of day and sun exposure, all in all, skiing was very nice which should be the rule for today as well.  Since most programs are done for the year, the next grooming will be Monday evening.

Groomer’s choice for today is the East Fields.

Will be hard and fast this am but will soften quickly when it warms up today. The far loop near the signs 6&5 is closed for the season due to construction. Sale in the shop–clothing, skis, boots, poles are 20% off!

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.

Last Update: 3/12
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 Has Ended For The Season
Last Update: 3/17
What a day for the season closer! Sunny skies, fast trails, delicious food, lots of rentals and a lesson out of our ski hut, the luck of the Irish, and smiles all around. Thank you to all who visited us this winter. As we reflect on the 2023/2024 winter season we are so grateful for the community who loves Turpin, it truly is the people who make this place special. 

Turpin Meadow Ranch is located on the Bridger-Teton National Forest therefore you can still use the winter trails though they will no longer be maintained and most amenities are closed for the season. The lodge restrooms and retail shop will be open from 9am-4pm until April 15. If you venture up this spring be sure to carry your bear spray. We kindly ask that any springtime trail users respect the fact that the buildings, vehicles, and essentially anything above ground is private property and unavailable during the off season.

Southern Valley Nordic

Last Updated: 3/16
Cleaned up the skate lane on both yeti and campground. Reset the classic track on campground. The classic track on yeti was in pretty good shape and I could t have improved it, so I left it alone. It’s not great in the sunny spots and it is great in the shady spots. Enjoy! Looks like it was skiing fast and fun! Don’t forget your sunscreen!

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! 

Please note the USFS dog closure policy Dec 1st – April 15th at this venue.  


Teton Reserve Nordic

Grooming Schedule: Tuesday, Thursday, Saturday
Last Updated: 3/16
Groomed with the rabbit in really challenging conditions. The golden hour at this time of the year is exactly that, about an hour. Groomed all the southern loops for skate and classic. Left the north loop as is due to the challenges. Groomer tip: try to ski between 30 and 35°  for your best experience. Any colder and it will be frozen due to the moisture content from the warm daytime temp. 

ATTENTION: Do not CRUST CRUISE on golf course property and respect the privacy of homeowners. Stay away from homes, private property and ski on established trails only. Thank you.

Wednesday morning: mostly good, and some better, news!
good news: classic track is in. It’s a bit variable (shallow) in some places and soft at the moment, but hopefully it sets up well.
better news: used the ginzu to reset the skate track and it’s in good condition!
The snow is falling and covering things quickly, but the sun is on its way. Get it while you can!
