March 1, 2023 Nature Update

Provided by Cathy Shill founder of The Hole Hiking Experience

 “There is no winter without snow, no spring without sunshine, and no happiness without companions.”
-Korean Proverb

We seem to be in an ongoing storm cycle with more to come later this week. Local meteorologist, Jim Woodmency, reports that 2022 was colder, wetter, and snowier than normal. Seems to be our trend for the last 7 years.  https://www.mountainweather.com/2023/01/jackson-trends-colder-wetter-snowier-than-normal/. The word around town is this winter resembles 2017 which was the winter the power lines blew down on the road to Teton Village. Still lots of winter left and March can be a wet month. 

Snow piles are high, and movement is tough. As I drive the streets, I see deer all over town. Hard time for the wildlife so be extra careful to minimize any disturbance. Warmer temperatures also make the snow heavier requiring more calories. I would expect high mortality due to this long cold, snowy winter. 

As March begins, we will see more changes in nature. Robins have been seen in town and I heard a Cassin’s Finch singing yesterday. Warmer temperatures and longer days stimulate this change and as days lengthen more light penetrates the snowpack.

This light affects the nivean environment or the snow world. Plants and animals both respond. Rodents mass together for warmth for most of the winter. Increased light initiates hormonal changes and they become more territorial so begin to defend the territory from others. The Snow Buttercup, Ranunculus nivalis, which stores energy in its’ bulb will grow at the edge of the snowpack as it seeks the light.

Join Susan Marsh, local author and naturalist, and I to explore the change of season this Saturday in Cache Creek. It’s a free outing offered in conjunction with the Teton County Chapter of the Wyoming Native Plant Society. Sign up is required so shoot me an email to get on the list. Timing is 10-noon and we will travel by snowshoe.  info@holehike.com | 307.690.4453 | www.holehike.com

Trail Creek

Grooming Daily
Last Update:
Miles and Miles of Beautiful Corduroy
Cold temperatures, fresh snow, clear skies, all the perfect ingredients for miles and miles(or kilometers and kilometers) of fresh, beautiful corduroy. Skiing is excellent at Trail Creek today! While winds are a bit gusty, temperatures are around 25 at the cabin, and it really would be hard to find better skiing conditions than right now.

The Lollipoppers were having a great time out on the trails this week! They explored some fresh powder, getting great backcountry experience that will come in handy some day, and then tried out the Nordic X course, which is gradually improving in direct proportion with the groomer’s snow-moving skills. Thanks for the photos, Coach Cathy!

Of mild interest, the Moose and Elk were hanging out together on Woolsey today. Usually they avoid each other, but perhaps they were discussing this summer’s grazing agreements? Food for thought.

Groomer’s choice for today is the East Fields.

Turpin Meadow Ranch

Grooming Daily
Last Update: 2/28
What is a cross country skier’s favorite fabric?… Corduroy! All of our ski trails are in great condition with a little new snow and attention from the pisten bully. There are some bold moose in Mule Pasture, they didn’t seem to care about the grooming equipment, in fact they were a little curious! The single track was groomed this morning also. If you’re thinking about an excursion to Turpin now is the time!

Turpin Meadow Ranch is open to all for skiing, lodging, dining, Nordic lessons, and tours! Closing day (March 12, 2022) is not too far away so make your plans to come to Turpin soon! Call the office (307) 543-2000 or visit our website to book your adventure and/or meal!

Grand Targhee

Grooming Schedule: Sunday, Tuesday, Thursday, & Saturday
Last Updated: 3/2
Classic Track: Set | Fat Bike Trails: Closed | Snowshoe Trails: Open
An unexpected 6″ of snow fell overnight! Last night’s “light snow” forecast quickly ramped up around 6pm and produced significant accumulation. Clouds and light snow will continue throughout the day. The storm will ramp back up in the late afternoon. March is off to a great start!

Remember, singletracks will be closed when there is more than 3 inches of snow in a 24 hour period.

Last Updated: 2/28
Skate: Set | Classic: Set

The new snow has been rolled out and the classic track set. Of course, skate skiing is going to be soft, but it should be okay. One more groom and it should firm up nicely. Hopefully, the wind will stay gentle, and the track won’t get filled back in overnight.
