Trail Creek Report

Last Updated: 3/21

Keep on Skiing!

Some fascinating weather phenomenon developed around the valley yesterday afternoon, around 5 PM the temperature at the north side of Jackson was 33ºF while the temperature at Trail Creek was 49ºF.  Conditions were so still that there must have been tiny pockets of inversion here and there.  If you are sitting in a low cold spot today waiting for temps to warm for that perfect spring ski, you might check the airport temperature as it pretty much paralleled Trail Creek yesterday.

Today’s grooming at Trail Creek actually happened late afternoon and early evening yesterday in which the Pisten Bully did a pretty good job of laying in fresh classic tracks and skate lanes.  The perimeter of the fields and most major woods trails received double passes with classic tracks.  While the close woods do have a pretty high load of ungulate fecal material, trails should ski nicely today when the temperature is just right.  Woods trails will be more dependable at any time while the sunnier trails will probably be best late morning to early afternoon.

Next grooming will probably be late morning Friday.

Groomer’s choice for today is to enjoy some spring skiing,

Teton Co./Jackson Parks & Rec Grooming Report
Last Updated: 3/21

8:40am: the school fields and the levee are groomed and in good shape although the classic tracks are very shallow. I am starting Stilson shortly and should be done around 10:45.


Grand Teton National Park Grooming Report
Last Updated: 3/18

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.


Teton Pines Grooming Report
Last Updated: 3/19

Come out and ski with us through Friday! Our Classic track will be fast today. We reset it yesterday at 4pm, so it will be very mice once it warms up a bit. Skate skiing will be awesome today. The tracks will be softened up by 11am. Come out and enjoy our last few days of an incredible season!


Shooting Star Grooming Report

Pinedale Nordic Trail Report
Last Updated: 3/21 @ 9am

Most trails above groomed last night. Expect firm conditions this morning, softening conditions as the day goes on. The best skiing likely between 10AM to 1PM today. It will certainly be soft as the afternoon goes on. Predicted for temperatures to be above 50F degrees up above today. Because of the warm afternoon temperatures, do not recommend trail use after 2PM. If we stay off the trails in the afternoon, it will help preserve them for the next day.


Alta Track

Grooming Schedule: Tuesday, Thursday, Saturday, Sunday
Last Updated: 3/21 @ 7am
Skate: Excellent  |  Classic: Good

Moonlit grooming session last night ended at 2am. Ginzued 2-3 passes on skate lanes. Could not improve the classic track (as the snow was too cold to reset). Left it alone. Just checked the surface of the track (8am) and it seems to have set up nicely. It should be great skate skiing and okay classic skiing today (until it hits 50 degrees)!

Grooming Schedule: Monday, Wednesday, Friday

Teton Canyon

Grooming Schedule: Tuesday, Thursday, Saturday
Last Updated: 3/20 @ 10am
Skate: Good | Classic: Good

I ginzued the skate lane this morning. It’s so firm out there, it should be good. I left the classic lane because it was so solid, I could not improve it. Enjoy this beautiful day.

Teton Springs

Grooming Schedule: Monday, Wednesday, Saturday and Sunday
Last Updated: 3/21 @ 11am
Skate: Good |  Classic: Fair

Just got one pass finished before the sled pooped out, but was able to set classic (the classic tracks are pretty but soooooft. If the tracks can set up overnight, they should be good for the morning). The course is getting narrower as the sides soften up and the golf course is starting to plow/auger right up against the groomed trail, so be careful!

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!
