Trail Creek Report
January 2nd 2019 @ 12pm

Everywhere a Sign!

Once again Trail Creek is experiencing an awesome sunny day with the 11:45 AM conditions being sunny, calm, and the temperature at a slightly cool -17ºC/1ºF.  Yesterday all trails received extensive grooming and even though there was a bit of a morning rush yesterday, the teams weren’t out and the afternoon crowd was a bit on the short side which resulted in the trails being in pretty good condition this morning.

Taking advantage of this situation, the Ginzu was called to duty to deliver the remainder of the signs out to the trails (it works better for that job than the Pisten Bully) while doing a limited groom in the woods.  The Pisten Bully did groom the close field and also continued work on the Alternative Nordic X course up towards the ranch.

The snow is a little slow today because of the cool temps, but you don’t ski unless you want a work out and you will just get a little bit more today.

Groomer’s choice for today is the close field.

Status of USFS Winter Operations

A note from the Forest Service: As you know, the Forest Service is included in the Government Shutdown. Therefore, the majority of our folks are furloughed and the offices are closed. However, we will be able to provide limited services with a focus on public safety. This includes:

  • The BT Avalanche Center will continue to issue forecasts
  • Plowing will continue at Granite, Gros Ventre, Mosquito Creek and Cache Creek (but may not be as frequent)
  • Snow ranger patrols will continue on a limited basis (this includes Cache and Game and our snowmobile patrols)
  • Jay will continue to cover Teton Pass
  • The ambassadors will continue covering Cache and Game (since they are not technically FS volunteers)

Thank you for your support of our winter program and your patience. Hopefully we will return to full operations soon.

GROOMING REPORTS


Teton Co./Jackson Parks & Rec Grooming Report
Last Updated: 1/2 @ 11am
Game Creek is finished and in great shape but I bit chilly!! It was -15 at the start of the trail at 10:30am. I am starting Three Creek and should be done around 1:00.

Turpin Meadow Ranch
Last Updated: 1/2

Temperatures have been very cold up at the ranch. This has made for firm trails. Our fat bike single track is in great shape. Also, the snow is setting up nicely for those who want to try an off trail snowshoe adventure.

The temperatures might be cold but the views will be hot as plenty of abundant sunshine should help warm the soul over the next few days with the blue bird forecast.

Pinedale Nordic Trail Report
Last Updated: 12/28 @ 9am

Half Moon Tie-In, Kelly Park, Kelly Tie-In, Upper & Lower Surveyor, Tree Loop, Moose Ridge, Flatline, and Old Road Trail have all been groomed this morning. Waiting for more snow to do Heart Attack. About 1/2″ of new snow overnight. 7F degrees at the Nordic Equipment Building. Road plowed, a lot of skier traffic – drive with care, always. Watch out for kids and dogs in the White Pine parking lot, especially at road crossings. There are Nordic skiers parking at the lower end, and alpine skiers near the lodge. Drivers, please slow down going to/from/through the White Pine parking lot – a dog got hit yesterday by a truck driving too fast (the dog is ok). There are moose on Moose Ridge – give wildlife their space. The CCC and Golf Course trails were groomed yesterday and should be fair skiing, with a heavy dusting of snow on them. Parking areas are plowed. Golf Course Club House is open for meals and restroom. Lakeside Lodge is also open for meals and lodging. See links below for links to their websites for more info on days and times for open hours and services through the winter.
