Trail Creek Report

Sky View Stadium!

As of today Sky View stadium and the associated and dreaded Gut Flop are officially open!  Last night we received yet another half foot of heavy dense snow which gave us plenty to cover up all the little bits of nastiness and bring Sky View and Gutflop into their full winter splendor.

The 12:30 PM conditions today are a light breeze, a few flakes falling, and a temperature of -1ºC/30ºF.  Today’s grooming was mainly prep work this week’s practice sessions, bringing all three stadiums (the stadium, Sky View stadium, and Moose Loop stadium) on line as well as doing extensive work in the fields and East Field Woods. While there wasn’t time for the National Forest trails today, pretty much every other trail received fresh classic and skate grooming.  The warmth has really helped the snow to firm up resulting in some very nice conditions.

Of note, a mountain lion was reported being spotted on the trails so keep your eyes open and you might get a lucky sighting.

Groomer’s choice for today is the East Fields and Sky View Stadium.

Grand Targhee Grooming Report
Last Updated: 1/21

Did you know that Grand Targhee’s grooming team works all through the night into the
morning? When skies are clear, you can see them zooming around in their Cats all the way from the valley! Because of this, some runs are listed as groomed in the PM, while others are listed as groomed in the AM. Here’s what to expect from each:
• Groomed AM: soft, fresh corduroy that may have an inch or so on top – smaller skis will do just fine on these and you won’t have a problem working those edges.
• Groomed PM: (a favorite on a day like today) soft and flat underneath, with about 3-4″ on top, making for smooth surf like turns over a great base.

Cross Country/Fat Bike 15k: XC OPEN (Last groomed AM 1/20/2019, No Classic), Fat Bike CLOSED.

Pinedale Nordic Trail Report
Last Updated: 1/18 @ 11am

Half Moon Tie-In, Kelly Park, Kelly Tie-In, Lower Surveyor, the perimeter of Upper Surveyor, Tree Loop, Moose Ridge, and Old Road Trail all groomed this morning. About ½ foot of new snow. 30F degrees. Still a few moose hanging out up above. The road and parking lot are plowed. As always, please pick up after your pets and pitch droppings off the groomed ski trails – it really helps to keep the trails clean.

Alta Track

Skate: Good |  Classic: Good
With the warm snow, both tracks came out really well. The classic track set into soft, warm snow and the skate lane did, too. The snow is so dense that the skate lane feels quite firm. Beware of the occasional pile of snow on the skate lane where I cleaned off the roller. Enjoy!

  • Morel Mushroom Foraging in the Tetons
    Let’s make lemonade out of lemons.. the lemonade being morel mushrooms and the lemons being the lingering cold temperatures (snow, sleet, and hail). What comes with so much needed precipitation are morels! Morel mushrooms are fungi that grow in the filtered light of forests. These oddly shaped mushrooms graze the valley floor and make for a fun activity for the whole family. Walking through the woods or floating the Snake River with a keen eye… Read More
