GROOMING REPORTS


Trail Creek Grooming Report

Last updated: 12/18

While it doesn’t look to be an epic event, if forecasts hold true Trail Creek looks to be picking up five or six inches in the next 24 hours. As of 11:15 AM we are sitting under a rather boisterous sky with a few flakes falling at a warm 1ºC/33ºF, there was a peak of sunshine every now and then, and while it was calm at the cabin complicated clouds were racing over the ridges.  About a half inch of snow has fallen since yesterday’s grooming.

Today’s grooming was Pisten Bully best line skate grooming on almost all trails with fresh classic tracks on Armin’s.  There is also a 1K classic sprint course in the close field that you are welcome to check out.  If you make it out in the next hour you might be lucky enough to catch up with a bunch of JHSC coaches in a training session which could be quite spectacular.

Groomer’s choice is Armin’s.

Shooting Star Grooming Report

Last Updated: 12/18

The trails received some extra blade work this morning to buff out a few soft spots that formed from this past weekend’s weather and the course should ski well for the majority of the day.  Outlook is calling for a winter weather system to pass through later this afternoon and linger through Thursday. Once the storm arrives expect possible drifting and snow accumulations to occur. Next update will be Friday. Enjoy!


Turpin Meadow Ranch

Last Updated: 12/16

With beautiful days and light snow in the forecast now is a great time to head up to Turpin. The fat bike trails are in great condition and only one biker has been on them since opening! If you’re looking for some winter solitude this week come and get it on our trails.

Comments: Conditions are phenomenal right now. Firm and fast! Upper and Lower Lady Slipper from the Grumpy trail to Pole Canyon are riding, as well as the Powerline Road from Pole Canyon to Mike Harris. Nemo trail is groomed and riding great! The Grumpy Loop is not groomed, but packed in and rideable for the advanced riders — lots of moose traffic in that region, so be on alert. The back path behind Teton Springs is groomed.
