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.

Snowy Cabin Edition!
We’re once again into the latter half of February and the snow has gotten deep this winter. With not a lot of snow in the short term forecast and warm temperatures surely just around the corner it’s time to see how we are faring this winter.

While we aren’t breaking any records this winter like 2019 or 2017, there is still a lot of snow on the roof of the cabin near the Homesite Trail, arguably probably third place since 2012.

Today’s grooming was Pisten Bully best line grooming of nearly every trails with classic tracks being reset in the close field and on several sections in the woods where needed.  Conditions as of 11 AM are sunny and calm with a rapidly warming temperature of -16ºC/3ºF.  Trails have seen a lot of use since the last snowfall, but thanks to the cold temps are still skiing quite nicely.

Groomer’s choice for today is to ski up Homesite and check out the snowy cabin.

The sun is shining, and the hill is waiting for you. Soak up that vitamin D and check today’s workout off the list the best way we know how. Because, with a workout (and a great day of skiing) in the books, those Wydaho nachos, a beer, and live music at the Trap will be glorious! Trust me, I know from experience!
