Joe Stone on Sit Skis

Accessibility in the Outdoors

If you live in the Tetons, are an advocate for accessibility in recreation, and/or hit the mountain bike trails a lot, you probably know Joe Stone! A key member in our community, and recently promoted as the Executive Director of Teton Adaptive Sports, Joe Stone is a force for progress in the Teton Valley. 

Much to JH Nordic’s liking, Joe is an avid nordic skier. He even admitted that he likes nordic skiing more than alpine skiing! Of the Tetons he says, “It’s pretty neat to live in a place that has all of those opportunities where it can be as adventurous as you want it to be or as mellow. That offers it up to so many people because it has that wide range of challenges.” One of his goals is to ski from Taggart to Signal and back; however, Joe is not rushing himself to complete that goal, as “that’s a pretty ambitious goal for me as a C7 quadriplegic.” Joe wants to ensure he is physically fit before he attempts the round-trip ski. 

Of the JH Nordic website, Joe says it’s “really making it easy for everyone with all the information that’s being put up on the website so we can see exactly what trails are being groomed and when, seeing that schedule, seeing all the different trails and the elevation and the type of terrain you’re getting into. That’s a perfect example of what we want to do (to promote accessibility). For someone like myself who’s a skier, it really matters what kind of terrain I’m going to get into [ . . . ] It’s a difference of “is it even physically possible or not, or is it safe or not?”



Friendly reminders from our Friends at TVTAP: 

• Don’t walk or ride over classic-set tracks.

• Only ride your fat bike when/where snow is firm. Groomed tracks can be variable.

• Comply with local leash laws and always have your pet under voice control. 

• Pick up after your dog. No one likes brown snow. 

• Walkers and snowshoers should yield trail to skiers.

• Skiers- keep speed under control when others are around.

Onto The Course!
Our hard working substitute Pisten Bully was once again doing it best to get a great course in shape for Monday’s Betty Woolsey Classic Race.  While still a bit on the chilly side this morning, it has warmed overnight and the weather looks absolutely pleasant for Nordic skiers over the next few days.  It does look like about an inch of snow overnight with light snow showers over the weekend.

With the current forecast the grooming plan is Christmas Eve morning Pisten Bully grooming, Christmas morning a quick Ginzu pass around the course, and then Christmas late afternoon/evening the race course will be set.  Start time is 10 AM Monday with registration closing at 9 AM sharp.  All the information is available on the event page.

Today’s Pisten Bully grooming focused on the skiers right side of the course, widening the trails, leaving yesterday’s classic track untouched which is still in pretty good shape on the left side where possible.  It was also possible to run the roller around the East Field today to give skiers another option for their Nordic outing.  The fallen trees also were removed from the course today.

One final wildlife note for those of you who love watching the moose, a pretty big bull moose was spotted cruising by the cabin yesterday, something to look for on your next outing.

Groomer’s choice for today is the Betty Woolsey course.

We did a lap yesterday and again today and everything in the trees is in good shape but there is a lot of blowing snow in the open areas.  It may take a while to shovel out the Sidewalk section between bridge 2 and 3.

Skiing conditions should be very enjoyable today but be advised that there are some awkward areas on the track, in particular along 6,7 & 12. Trail conditions should continue to improve over the weekend with “warmer” temperatures returning. Happy holidays and enjoy.

Turpin Meadow Ranch

Grooming Daily
Last Update: 12/23
Friday was festive at Turpin Meadow Ranch with a visit from Santa and some of his friends. Our groomer asked for snow for Christmas; she must be on the nice list because before Santa hopped on his sleigh it began to snow and continued to snow through the rest of the afternoon. The groomer will be out in the pisten bully early morning Saturday, December 24.

Turpin Meadow Ranch is open to all for skiing, lodging, dining, Nordic lessons, and tours! Ours is a short season so be sure to plan a visit this winter between now and March 13, 2022. Call the office (307) 543-2000 or visit our website to book your adventure and/or meal!
