New Trail GPS, Elevation Profile & Info on JHNordic.com – Yeti’s Loop

Exciting news! We have just added a new trail into JHNordic.com/trails/, that is part of our Daily trail report in Teton Valley –   Yeti’s Loop. https://jhnordic.com/trails/Yeti’s%20Loop/

Even though it hasn’t been groomed for 10 days, the trail has plenty of snow, and is skiing well on classic skis – not recommended for skate skis until the next groom. We encourage you to try out this awesome trail!

Trail Creek Report

Last Updated: 3/23

14 Moose!

While they couldn’t all be convinced to line up for a photo tonight, a record breaking fourteen moose were hanging out in Woolsey Woods during this evening’s grooming. The picture is a little blurry but you can see ears back which is a sign that they have been hanging out at Trail Creek for plenty of time this winter and are ready for some fresh pastures. One bull in particular was picking on everybody tonight.

On the topic of grooming, things went really well in this evening’s grooming. Again the perimeter of the fields and the major woods trails received double Pisten Bully passes. The snow while soft, is holding up nicely so that the tracks on the Pisten Bully aren’t cutting in like they do in some really soft situations. However the classic track setter was able to lay in some really sharp classic tracks.

The close woods do have some heavy wildlife impact but the fields, Moose Loop, Armin’s, and the National Forest Trails will ski just the way you like tomorrow if you can find the right time to be there. Look for the next grooming Monday evening.

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

Plowing has begun at both the north and south ends of the Park road. 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.

Last grooming day was Friday March 22.


Shooting Star Grooming Report
Last Updated: 3/23

Beginning Sunday (3/24), no more classic tracks will be set on the Nordic course. Spring weather has finally made the trails hard packed and icy, which creates a surface to firm for cutting classic tracks into the snow profile… Also, the warm weather severely melts/degrades the classic tracks in the afternoon. Lastly, reminder that the course will be closed until 11 am today (3/23) for the PPP and be aware that only the tournament course was groomed this morning. The remainder of the course should still be in great shape but could be icier until the weather warms this afternoon. Overall, skiing should be very enjoyable and we’ll attempt to keep daily grooming through Sunday April 7th (Conditions Permitting).

Next Update: Wednesday

Spring skiing and riding is here, so make the most of every day on the mountain. We’ll see the light snow
taper off around 9am and then turning to mostly cloudy skies with a high near 35.

Cross Country/Fat Bike 15k: XC OPEN (Last groomed AM 3/23/2019) – No Classic Track Set, Fat Bike OPEN.


Pinedale Nordic Trail Report
Last Updated: 3/23 @ 9am

Most trails above groomed this morning. Temps in the mid-20Fs when I left. Skiing should be good in the morning and softening as the day goes on, depending on what the weather brings today. There are two vehicles stuck on the upper Kelly Park loop (drove onto the trails). Use caution. One is right at the bottom of the incline, so be careful coming down the hill. Have a good day.


Alta Track

Grooming Schedule: Tuesday, Thursday, Saturday, Sunday
Last Updated: 3/23
Skate: Fair  |  Classic: Fair

I ginzued the track this morning. I reset the classic track everywhere south of the 6-way junction and it came out pretty well. There are a few spots where it is shallow, but overall it is decent. I smoothed out the skate lane as well everywhere south of the the 6-way junction. The soft slush actually looked pretty good when I finished. It will be quite soft for skating, with many remnant dog tracks remaining from the soft afternoons, but well worth it. Depending on how the weather plays out, I plan to groom again Saturday night or Sunday morning.

Teton Canyon

Grooming Schedule: Tuesday, Thursday, Saturday
Last Updated: 3/23 @ 9am
Skate: Good | Classic: Good

Completed grooming at 8:30 am this morning (Saturday). Cleaned up skate lane, made a pass on the snowmobile lane and reset the classic track on north side of trail only (I broke a bolt so was unable to reset the classic track on the south side). Almost an inch of wet snow had fallen by the time I wrapped up.

Teton Springs

Grooming Schedule: Monday, Wednesday, Saturday and Sunday
Last Updated: 3/23
Skate: Good |  Classic: Not Set

Set a narrow but fairly firm skate track. The sled got bogged down in a few spots, so the trail will be chunky there. Also, watch for the cuts near the trail where the golf course crews have been working.

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!

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
