Crust Cruising Season Has Begun!

Whether you prefer Classic or Skate skiing, Crust cruising season is on! 

What fun, freedom, open terrain to explore that only last week was too deep to ski!

The crust cruising window is often intermittent -when the snow is frozen enough to support your weight, but the surface is soft enough (just barely) to create a smooth glide. Friends of Silicon Couloir ventured out Friday morning into south GTNP to find the skier track trail still frozen and crunchy, but the crust just perfect. Today’s window was from early morning until about 1. Every day is a little different , depending on the overnight freezing temps, sun impact, and wind (can have a cooling effect on the snow).

With this winter’s deep snowpack, most meadows are still fully covered in snow, and make for possible crust cruising. Test the snow before you hop on it, to ensure its strong. And be sure to time yourself to be off the snow before it softens. Enjoy crust cruising until the next snowfall, then wait again until the next cold, sunny few days..

Wanna Find a Great Trail? + Trip Report: Cache to Game

With some grooming operations closing up shop, you may be wondering “where do I ski now?” Don’t fret, there are still plenty of great options. Check out one of the 100s of trails mapped and described on the JH Nordic website trails section! For example, with the snow set up so well now might be the right time to try a winter trail adventure that’s been on your bucket list, perhaps Cache to Game?

TRIP REPORT FROM K.D.: Connecting Cache Creek to Game Creek – two favorite trails – has long been a goal of ours.  Thanks to car shuttles and breaking trail through deep snow, this approximately 9 mile adventure was longer and harder than planned – but the spectacular scenery and isolation made for an outstanding time.  Note that route-finding and avalanche safety skills are needed.  Our friend’s GAIA tracks helped out a lot! JH Nordic note:  this trip follows the summer hiking trail, up Cache , south over the Cache to Game divide, then out Game Creek

Responsible Nordic Skiing Looks Like This…

It’s Mid-March now; typically, this time of year, we see many signs of Spring as Spring Break approaches more daylight, warm temperatures sweep in, and wildlife emerges. But with all of this snow, it’s no wonder we all feel winter will be a little longer this season. Despite what season may be upon us, recreating responsibly is the only way to enjoy the trails in this magnificent place. So here is a friendly reminder the next time you hit those winter trails to leave no trace & know before you go!

Spring Snow Removal to Begin TOMORROW in GTNP

Snow removal operations will begin on Monday, March 20 on the GTNP park road. For safety reasons, visitors may not access the Teton Park Road once snow removal operations are underway. Rotary equipment and plows may be working at any time, and the roadway will be closed to all users until the snow removal operations are completed.

Skiers and those on snowshoes using areas adjacent to the roadway are cautioned to avoid the arc of snow blown from the equipment because pieces of ice and gravel may be thrown great distances. To check road status in the park, visit Grand Teton’s Live Road Status Map at go.nps.gov/tetonroads or call 307-739-3682.

GTNP – JH Nordic Web Cam Views

Even though GTNP’s Teton Park Road is no longer groomed this season, there’s still plenty of snow for some superb non-groomed skiing and stunning views of the highest peak in the Teton Range. Check out the view, weather, and snow conditions before driving to the Taggart trailhead via the web cam on the JHNordic.com home page.

Trail Creek

Grooming Daily
Last Update:
A Brisk Morning!

It was a brisk morning at Trail Creek, with temperatures a few degrees below zero and clear blue skies. This resulted in somewhat challenging grooming conditions, as trails more closely resembled ice than snow, while the Husky still resembles a Husky and not a Zamboni. Some experimental approaches were attempted around the Fields, which on the whole worked out fairly well and should result in a crisp, clean glide.

Today’s grooming was mostly a best-line pass through the woods, though some trails were omitted as much slower speeds were needed to create any form of corduroy. Additionally, there was a triple pass around the perimeter of the fields with a new classic track set.

Groomer’s choice for today is the perimeter of the Fields.

Shooting Star

Grooming Daily
Last Update: 3/18

Grooming will be ongoing through 10am with holes 3-9 being worked after 8:30am. The track has a very stubborn ice layer caused from Wednesday’s turbulent weather. It has taken until this morning for the liquid caused from recent warm temperatures and rain to finally set up and create a stable base for our snowcat to begin aggressive blade work for releveling/reworking the track. Note that this was the first thaw period that has occurred all winter, thus making for a more unstable trail profile than usual. The trails will be skiable and smoother this morning, however there will be larger corrugated lines(think large corduroy) caused from the blade and the classic track deep could be shallower. Additionally, we will be grooming this evening beginning at 5:30pm. Please be off the trail around 6pm. The evening grooming should help the tiller cut into the icy track and provide a smoother surface Sunday morning. Trails will still be enjoyable today but use caution as we work with what Mother Nature has dealt us. Evening grooming will likely continue through Monday or until nightly snowfall returns. 

Please help support trail grooming in GTNP by donating to the Grand Teton National Park Foundation. It’s easy and encouraged. All you need to do is visit: GTNPF.org/donate/ and leave the comment “Nordic” in the designation section. There is the opportunity to leave a one time gift or reoccurring monthly donations in any amount.
