Cranky the Moose Spotted at Trail Creek

We thought that he’d dropped his antlers and quieted down for the year, but the grooming department just received a report that Cranky is still sporting his antlers and still having an aptitude towards chasing skiers…have fun skiing, but be careful.

BTNF: Critical winter range reminder and spring conditions on the forest

The Bridger-Teton National Forest reminds visitors that winter wildlife restrictions remain in effect until May 1, 2024. It is important that all forest users understand the importance of observing critical winter range closures. Winter travel maps are available on the forest’s Maps and Publications webpage. These areas have been designated as essential to the survival of wildlife. When visitors access closed winter range, they cause animals using the area to become stressed or flee to new locations. This causes animals, especially ungulates like deer, elk and moose to use energy they cannot spare at this critical time of year. It can also place these animals in less suitable areas for grazing and/or browsing, preventing them from gathering the food sources necessary for their survival. This leads to a weakened condition, which can have a direct effect on the animals’ ability to defend themselves, making them more susceptible to predation and disease, and can lead to future reproduction problems in individual animals.

Spring is also an important time to be aware of hazards that come with the changing season. The forest reminds visitors to exercise caution as snow melts, temperatures rise and precipitation increases during the spring thaw, creating potential for muddy conditions and flooding in low-lying areas. Conditions across the forest are varied this time of year, and visitors should call or visit their local Ranger District Office for the latest updates before heading out for any spring activity. Be sure to let someone know where you are headed and remember that creeks or roads frozen in the morning may become soft and impassable as temperatures rise throughout the day. 

Forest users are encouraged to recreate responsibly this spring. Recreating with our four-legged members of our families can be great fun but comes with certain responsibilities. Be aware that many popular trailheads on the Jackson District have leash requirements, and even outside these areas it is imperative that visitors maintain control of their animals through a leash or voice command. This is essential to minimizing impacts on wildlife and improves the experience of other forest users. Bears will soon be coming out of hibernation throughout the area, so be prepared with bear spray and follow food storage orders where applicable on the northern and eastern parts of the forest. All forest users are also encouraged to practice Leave No Trace Principles by having a plan for all waste, as there are limited to no garbage services on the forest and many restrooms are closed or inaccessible due to current conditions.

Crust cruising classic skiing to Lucas Fabian cabins GTNP

Lots of excellent Nordic ski options continue to delight in GTNP…starting at the Taggart parking lot, we skied on the firm crust north, covered in a dusting of fresh snow to soften our glide. Untracked, smooth crust can be found following Teton Park road approximately 30 yards from the road (currently closed to recreational activities, as they plow it in preparation for summer installation).

We only passed a few xc skiers as we headed out, then had the open meadows to ourselves.
We marveled at the plasticity of the cornices in the roofs of the historic Lucas Fabian cabins, then stopped for a snack.

With the new snow, we were happy that we chose classic skies to cut through the new 1” of snow.
Still plenty of Nordic skiing adventures to enjoy!

We encourage winter trail users to support all of our grooming teams across Jackson Hole and Teton Valley. When possible please consider a donation to the trails you frequent. Please leave a comment such as “grooming” or “Nordic” in the designation or campaign section.

Trail Creek

Grooming Daily
Last Update 3/27

Grooming to the Finish Line
Even though the end of the season is just around the corner, skiing is still on the very nice side at Trail Creek this week.  Yesterday was a bit of a wild day weather-wise, with cool temps, but conditions varying from lots of blazing March sun to wild snow squalls and back again.  All in all the Nordic friendly temps and additional snow (2-3 inches yesterday) are adding up to some very nice late season skiing.

As mentioned previously in this report, we have a huge International Ski Federation Spring Series Race Saturday, Sunday, and Monday with course inspection first on Friday.  If you would like to watch some fantastic Nordic skiing, volunteer positions are still available on the website above or you could just come out and spectate.

The most recent grooming which occurred late in the day yesterday was all about the race with multiple passes being made on the race courses.  In addition to that, the Husky made a single skate/classic pass throughout most of the other trails in our system.  The fresh snow groomed nicely into the firm base which should result in nice skiing all day long today.

Looking ahead, we have another good shot of snow coming Thursday which will be great in making our conditions pristine for the big race.  The tentative weather dependent grooming schedule going forward is as follows:

· Wednesday PM light grooming on race courses only.
· Thursday PM total grooming of race courses for course inspection plus a pass through the woods trails (non-race) so visiting skiers will be able to see all the wonders of Trail Creek.
· Friday PM race course grooming focusing on the sprint course.
· Saturday PM race course grooming focusing on the 2.5k freestyle/classic course along with a pass through the non-race trails
· Sunday PM race course grooming focusing on the 5k classic course.

Groomer’s choice for today is to get out there and enjoy some great end of the season skiing as we near the finish line.
