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 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”.


Trail Creek Nordic

Last Updated: 2/22
Grooming Daily

Dawn of Another Bluebird Day!
The sun is once again beaming down upon the miles of Nordic trails at the Trail Creek Nordic Center.  Cool temps, both a blessing and a curse; continue again today with 9:30 AM temperature slightly warmer than yesterday at -12ºC/10ºF.  It looks as if calm winds and sunny skies will be the rule for the rest of the day.

There was a bit of an ungulate stampede going on this morning on Homeward Bound.  Too many elk to get a good count and around a half dozen moose were getting each other all worked up, romping around in a slight state of confusion as right of way protocols were attempting to be established.  Grooming continued elsewhere while calm eventually returned.  On the way back to the cabin past the site of the carnival cervidae, it was deemed that the melee of hoof prints was the perfect opportunity for a total rework of Homeward Bound, resulting in best of the year conditions, assuming the elk and moose stay in their day beds which they usually do.

Today’s Pisten Bully grooming was of the best line skate variety on all major trails. Homeward Bound and few other spots did receive classic track touch ups.  Thanks to the cold conditions skiing has remained quite nice although a little fresh snow which we are supposed to receive Sunday night would be a good thing.

Groomer’s choice for today is Homeward Bound.

Jackson Hole Golf and Tennis Club

Update: 2/22

Skier Update: Trail is ‘ groomed’ – not perfectly smooth corduroy, more “flattened and rolled”. Occasionally, there is a classic cross-country track, sometimes not. Certainly a nice hour and bit around the golf course with great views, a fun place to ski if you are looking for a new flat, groomed trail to try out.

Groomed with classic track on Tuesdays, Thursdays, and Saturdays.


Grand Targhee Nordic & Fat Biking

There are precious more beautiful things on the mountain than freshly-groomed corduroy on a clear day, set just perfectly to catch the rising rays of the sun. Endless views, warmer temperatures, and light winds will be served all day.
