Areas of Central Teton Range in Park Temporarily Closed for Nonnative Mountain Goat Management

Grand Teton National Park will implement a temporary area closure for public and operational safety during nonnative mountain goat removal activities beginning today, Friday, February 21. The temporary closure may be in effect for up to one week.

The closure area is bounded on the south by South, Middle and Grand Tetons, Mount Owen and Teewinot Mountain peaks; bounded on the west by the park boundary; bounded on the east by the western shores of Jackson, Leigh, String and Jenny Lakes; and bounded on the north by Rolling Thunder Mountain and Eagle Rest Peaks. No public access will be allowed in the area during this time. Signs will be posted at main access locations and a map of the temporary closure area can be viewed at https://www.nps.gov/grte/learn/management/temporary-closures-and-compendium-amendments.htm

LATITUDE is a poetic short documentary film that follows four daring young women to the 79th parallel, less than 700 miles from the North Pole to rediscover themselves amidst Svalbard’s epic arctic ocean sailing, ice mountain climbs and ski descents.

This 8 min. film was produced by JH Ski & Snowboard Club staff member Brittney Ziebell, on her adventure with 3 other women to the Arctic . It is so very inspiring to “keep exploring”.


Trip Report – GTNP Taggart to Jenny Lake via groomed trail

Thanks to last weekend’s huge snowfall, and a twice groomed trail from Taggart trailhead to South Jenny Lake on Tuesday, the Teton Park Road trail is skiing very nicely. We recommend classic skis until the groomer passes and packs the skate track down again on Friday. The skate track is soft, and skis well, but takes more effort due to softness. The classic tracks (2 set side-by-side) are smooth, firm, perfect for any classic cross-country ski up to approx 65mm wide.  We took a side-trip over to the historic, snow-covered Lucas Fabian cabins (at mile 2 from the Taggart trailhead. Always a favorite place for a snack, with an Old Jackson feel, crossing Cottonwood creek via wooden bridge to reach the cabins.

Lovin’ the Sunshine!
Coach Kathy’s Lollipoppers didn’t let a little chill slow them down yesterday; they were seriously cruising the sunny trails, loving every minute of it.  Grab an extra layer and you too can have some great Nordic fun!

As of 11:45 AM that sun is getting stronger and stronger by the minute, the wind is calm, and the temperature has warmed considerably to -16ºC/3ºF.  Today’s grooming was pretty much a total Pisten Bully rework of all the field trails and the non-Forest Service  woods trails with multiple passes and fresh classic tracks.  Most Forest Service trails received only best line PB skate grooming but yesterday’s classic tracks are still nice.

While it has been on the chilly side as of late, the bonus of that is that the snow has remained very nice through our recent mini drought.  Look for more snow and warming temperatures towards the weekend.

Groomer’s choice for today is the sunny East Fields.
