Trip Report: Alta Track

We classic skied Alta today and we like the new “please donate” signs at the trailhead …the skiing was great, both classic and skate, probably the best TVTAP tracks I’ve skied all year – they were excellent. It helped that the groomer had good, high-moisture, fine-grained, wind-blown, cold, dense snow to work with, and he made the most of it. Of course, it also helped that it set up overnight – the tracks were solid. Please thank Mike (don’t know his last name) for us, and for posting about it after he groomed. He said “Tomorrow should be really good especially classic.“ He was right, it was really good, and we’re happy he let us know! Merry Christmas! -CM

PS- JH Nordic Alliance encourages nordic skiers, fat bikers, snowshoers, walkers, dogs and friends to donate generously to our non-profit trail grooming operations (includes TVTAP, GTNP Foundation, JH Ski & Snowboard Club). It’s your support that provides our wonderful trail grooming!

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?”


Trail Creek

Christmas Eve – Pisten Bullys, Ginzus, and Rollers!
An entire battalion of grooming equipment was hard at work at Trail Creek today, working hard to pump out some nice Nordic skiing.  The substitute Pisten Bully was focusing on the Betty Woolsey course, keeping ahead of the snow for Monday’s great Betty Woolsey 10K Classic Race while the roller’s and Ginzu’s attention were being focused on keeping the East Fields, keeping those in shape for skiers who favor open terrain with grand vistas.  Fresh classic tracks were placed in both areas.

Overnight between an inch and two fell at Trail Creek, actually less than in town which is an unusual occurrence.  The current hourly forecast is calling for about three inches by sundown Christmas/Sunday with a couple tenths of an inch Sunday night.  The current grooming plan calls for a quick Ginzu pass of the course Christmas morning with multiple Pisten Bully passes late Christmas afternoon/evening.  For Monday start time the forecast is 31ºF with sun and light south breezes.  With rising temps through the race, it will be one of those really fun days for a classic race, get those registrations in!

Groomer’s choice for today is Christmas joy on a great Nordic ski!

Made three laps this morning. Set the classic track on the first lap with the ginzu and it came out pretty nice. On the second lap the ginzu started getting packed with snow and I had to stop several times to clean it out; watch out for a few bumps in the skate lane. Third lap with the roller came out OK! Have a Merry Christmas!
