of Nordic skiing in Jackson Hole


GTNP Plowing

Plowing has begun at both the north and south ends of the Park road, meeting in the middle. The Park’s intention was to start today, and we believe that they did.

Please do not ski on the road that has not yet been plowed, as this trail is closed for the season

We will keep everyone informed when the road re-opens to bikes, walkers, and other modes of human-powered transport.

Grooming Extended at Teton Pines

Teton Pines Nordic Center just announced thanks to superb snow and grooming conditions, they will be extending their grooming and Nordic Center trail operation through this Friday , March 22nd.

The skate skiing is just absolutely unbelievable. Classic cross-country tracks are firm and fast. Skate skiing is in the best condition of the season. So if you’re interested in skate skiing come on over, track is firm, smooth, and unbeatable right now.


Last Weekend in GTNP

Still lots of skier tracked trails to enjoy such as Taggart Lake, Cottonwood Creek, Granite canyon to Phelps lake, Whitegrass Ranch, 2 Oceans Lake, and many more. Search under “Grand Teton NP” under ”regions” on JHNordic.com/trails/

Stay tuned for crust-cruising…waiting for snow transformation!

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.

Sun, sun, sun! I don’t know about you, but I can’t get enough! That feeling of loose muscles, no tension as you shiver in the cold. It makes you want to dance, right? Or do this ‘WIGGLE’! Head on up, and let’s boogie. A high of 34 degrees and not a cloud in the sky!

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!
