The Snow is Falling

The trails are fresh and its time to get out there and explore!

Here is a powder day on Nordic Ski. Great to escape the crowds into your own winter wonderland. This trip went from Moose-wilson road to LSR Preserve.

Thank you Karen D. for the trip report and the photos.

For more day ventures and places to check out this weekend see the link below. From Togwotee, the Gros Ventres, Driggs and Grand Teton see all the pathways in the area.


Fat Biking In Jackson Hole and Teton Valley

Fat biking is expected to be much more popular this winter due to the COVID-19 pandemic that not only increased outdoor recreation activity in the summer and fall, but also has caused the ski areas in Jackson to limit their lift capacity. People are likely to spread out throughout Jackson Hole and Teton Valley to participate in a greater variety of activities, including fat biking. Since social distancing is done easily on bikes, fat biking will be a great way to participate in some safe, healthy, winter fun this year.

With help from Chris Owen at Friends of Pathways and David Hunger from Teton Mountain Bike Tours, we have put together information on operation updates, gear recommendations, and responsible recreation for fat biking this winter.

Trail Creek Nordic

Last Updated: 1/23

Racing Day 2!

Today is the final day of the two day western Wyoming/Eastern Idaho Nordic race at Trail Creek.  Today’s venue is a short sprint course near the cabin with a start time of noon.  Covid safe spectators are welcome today, just wear your mask and keep your distance.

Today’s course was set last night and if all goes according to plan there will be just enough time for a quick venture of the Pisten Bully out to the woods this morning which should result in opportunities not only for racers, but recreational skiers as well.  Don’t forget however that the race course is closed until around 4 PM.

Groomer’s choice for today is to ski fast!

With the new grooming snow cat, and an inch of soft snow, trails at The Pines were silky smooth, fast today. The JH Nordic Masters skate ski clinic was fun, practicing V2 technique and drills, and simply skiing!Check out the new snow cat for grooming perfection, just arrived this morning! We tested the before and after. The new groomed corduroy was silky smooth, nice and wide…will be a great bonus!

Also, conditions may still have some icy sections and will trend towards being hard packed until our next storm cycle.

Another few inches throughout the day yesterday and over night, the trails are still quite soft but everything was reset this AM! If you’re new to skiing or wanting to refine your skills, book a ski lesson with our professional ski instructor Elee (she also does guided tours)! She is a wealth of knowledge and can help take your Nordic skiing, whether it be skate or classic, to the next level! To help with social distancing and to get you on the trails faster please purchase your trail passes and sign your waivers online in advance (see link below). As always, remember to recreate responsibly. Bring a mask as it is required to enter the lodge. Lunch and dinner are both by reservation only.
