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

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

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

Last Updated: 3/24

Another bout of snow is on the way and is expected to fall after 11 am. Overall though, skies will be mostly cloudy,
and highs will near 36 degrees. Winds will stay in the single digits and blow SE. Sounds like a good day to ski to me!

Cross Country/Fat Bike 15k: XC OPEN (Last groomed AM 3/24/2019) – No Classic Track Set, Fat Bike OPEN.

*Note: Sorry to inform folks that the nordic grooming cat with our classic track setter has suffered mechanical issues that are not able to be resolved for the rest of the season. Consequently, there will be no more classic track grooming for the rest of the season.

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.

Last Updated: 3/24
Skate: Good | Classic: Good

Finished grooming this morning (Sunday) at 9 am. Left classic track alone. Yesterday, a classic track was set on the north side of trail and it is still in decent shape. Biggest success was knocking down and filling in foot, hoof and paw tracks on the skate lane.
Still 49 inches of snow at the stake!

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.
