Trip Reports: Full Moon Ski, Trail Creek, Shooting Star, and More

Multiple Trip Reports are coming into JHNordic these past few days. In spite of low snow, everyone is making the most of lightly groomed trails, skier-tracked trails, even a full moon ski!

If you missed the full moon last night, tonight will still be plenty bright (98-99% ). We didn’t need our headlamps it was so bright!

Shooting Star, Teton Pines Nordic, Trail Creek Nordic, Turpin Meadow Ranch grooming all make for some nice gliding on the JH side of the Tetons. Teton Canyon, Targhee, and Southern Valley are getting excellent skier reports too!

Trail Creek

Grooming As Needed
Last Update: 12/26
A Week of Blue Skies!
The old cerulean blue is covering half of the world today at Trail Creek; abundant sunshine with cool temps and stable, hardworking snow are providing some reasonable and fast skiing conditions.  One of our locals out skiing today noted that this would be a great Nordic skiing day in Vermont and that it’s really pretty good here as well.  While the snow fairies have been a bit hard to find lately, the good news is that the most recent 8-14 day plots show us moving into the above normal precip range, keep your fingers crossed!

Today’s Ginzu grooming was a best line pass on most woods trails with double passes around the field.  Of note today is that the section near the old pass road received initial passes for the year.  While still pretty rough, it will come along nicely in the days to come and will give our skiers other terrain options.  Also today an ice jam formed under the bridge in the Black Hole area making for a fascinating sight; use caution as the crossing will be quite slippery.

Looking ahead, the Nordic Senior Nationals begin in Soldier Hollow next weekend.  In this instance Senior doesn’t mean retirement age, but mostly U23’s although some of our older skiers will be participating as well; if you’re looking for a fun adventure, this could be it.  Grooming will continue on a variable schedule depending on snow and might switch to afternoons later in the week depending on the weather.

Groomer’s choice for today is to check out the newly groomed terrain in the Old Pass Area.


Teton Co./Jackson Parks & Rec

Last Update: 12/11
Staff went up Game Creek on Saturday. Weekend storm was a bust. Snowmobile and pull behind took a real beating so we pulled out before getting into the sunny areas. We need 3-4” of wet snow or more fluffy snow to keep grooming.

Cache Creek Singletrack

Groomed by Friends of Pathways
Grooming As Needed

Last Update: 12/10
We groomed the Cache Creek road to Noker Mine and upper Hagen from bridge 5 to 2.  The lower trails are still a little thin on snow, especially under the trees, but are still compact enough to use for now.  We will keep snowshoeing around and packing things in until there is enough snow to take the roller through.
