Trail Creek Report

Last Updated: 3/2


One of our younger groups was having fun the other day while enjoying warm soft snow and created a fantastic snowman that will greet you on your journey up Grunt, make sure to check him out on your next outing to Trail Creek. As part of your welcome today you will encounter lots and lots of fresh groomed trails; today’s Pisten Bully grooming entailed a best line skate pass of almost every trail along with lots of classic track touch up in the fields. While conditions aren’t perhaps Olympic caliber because of all the warm wet snow we have received as of late, you should be able to have a great time and get a good workout today. As of 9:30 AM the sky is partly cloudy, the wind calm, and the temperature -10ºC/14ºF.

There was a six pack of moose hanging out by Rogue Bridge in the Boiler section today. If you notice the laid back ears, they have been a bit testy lately; all the snow has not really made their lives easier. The big gal in the front was being just a bit threatening so use a little common sense on your adventures.

If you have noticed that the close field is pretty much a maze at the current time, you are not mistaken; this maze however, is not the random wanderings of a snow crazed groomer, but the results of several additional events this winter that require specific courses. If you’re confused we apologize, hopefully you have been able to enjoy what is probably the most kilometers of set trails (~20) ever at Trail Creek.

I went out this morning and finished up the track. We now have re-established both the classic lane and the skate lane across the entire track. They will both be quite soft, but dry, sunny conditions over the next few days should help firm it all up. Enjoy!

Did a few more laps on Yeti’s Loop Friday afternoon with the old ginzu. Got it cleaned up and buffed out.  Also set a classic track that will work well for classic skiing counter-clockwise.

  • Morel Mushroom Foraging in the Tetons
    Let’s make lemonade out of lemons.. the lemonade being morel mushrooms and the lemons being the lingering cold temperatures (snow, sleet, and hail). What comes with so much needed precipitation are morels! Morel mushrooms are fungi that grow in the filtered light of forests. These oddly shaped mushrooms graze the valley floor and make for a fun activity for the whole family. Walking through the woods or floating the Snake River with a keen eye… Read More
