Teton County Parks and Rec Grooming

A quick note: Parks & Rec will not be able to groom with the Pistenbully because of mechanical issues with their trailer used to haul the Pistenbully around.  Until this issue is resolved they will only able to groom with the snowmobile and roller.  We will update you when the trailer is repaired and they’re back to regularly scheduled grooming with the Pistenbully.

Trail Creek Report

Last Updated: 1/22 @ 1pm

Amazing Moonset!

If your daily Nordic ski was early morning today you got to witness an amazing moonset with the slightly waning, but nearly full moon making a spectacular exit to the west.  If the sky is clear tomorrow it still should be a great show.

Speaking of great shows, if you have time to come on out to Trail Creek today you can make yourself the star of your very own Nordic ski show.  Trails are perhaps just a bit soft yet, but all things considered conditions can be pretty much called fantastic.  Today’s grooming was a total rework of the fields complete with fresh double classic tracks.  The woods trails set yesterday received skate grooming and all major National Forest trails received double Pisten Bully passes with fresh classic tracks.

As of 1 PM the sky was still sunny, the temperature -8ºC/18ºF, and the wind calm.  If you have time to make it out yet today it could be a top 10 day.

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.

LATEST JACKSON HOLE TRAIL REPORT

  • 9 Dec 22 – Daily Trail Report
    Help Protect Wintering Wildlife in Grand Teton Winter has arrived in Grand Teton National Park – an excellent time for recreation in the snow but also a challenging time for wildlife in and around the Tetons. Wildlife specialists are asking visitors to avoid disturbing animals by following all winter closures and voluntarily avoiding bighorn sheep winter zones. In all other areas of the park, visitors should still give wildlife plenty of space by maintaining 100… Read More
