Where’s the green in this photo? All our recent snowfall might have something to do with that…

Despite how the ground looks, spring green-up is beginning throughout the Greater Yellowstone Ecosystem. Starting in late March, plants in the southern portion of the GYE bloom. As the season progresses, this bloom trends north, creating quite literally a wave of green across the landscape. Migrating animals such as elk follow this wave, eating the new growth as they make their way to the summer range. With Jackson having one of the largest elk herds in North America–over 11,000 animals!–it’s especially important to use caution on the roads during this migration season. Obey speed limits, reduce driving at dawn and dusk, and always keep your eyes on the road!

Nearing the End!
Only two more days of grooming remain! Trails are still holding together remarkably well, but you can feel spring in the air; the sun is hot, and the south wind is blowing. Today’s major event was the closure of the East Fields; the snowplows managed to completely cover the roadside part of the trail with gravel and salt, so as a precaution against damaged equipment, they were not groomed today. Consider taking the woods instead! If we get enough snow tonight, it might be restored for tomorrow.

Today’s grooming was a best-line pass of the trails, with double passes on Moose Loop, Déjà vu, and Homesite/Suicide. A mama moose and her calf are hanging out up on Boiler, so be a bit wary if you decide to head that way, while the rest seem to have headed off towards the Ranch. Grooming was a bit chunky, but as the day warmed up became quite decent, and should offer a nice glide.

Groomer’s choice is Homesite.

Cache creek is groomed and in decent shape. I will not be able to groom May park since rancher street is closed. I have no easily accessible spot to park the truck and trailer to load and unload the groomer. Game creek will be done around 10:15.

Anticipate similar conditions to last weeks, as daily light snow accumulations are again forecasted with possible heavier amounts towards the weekend. Skiing should remain enjoyable but keep up with the weather in case the winds pick up. Enjoy the late season snowy weather!

Also, reminder that we will continue to groom the Nordic Course until Sunday, April 9th. After this date the course will be closed as GCM will begin removing snow from the cart paths and commence spring golf course preparations once conditions allow. Thanks.
