Trail Creek

It’s a Really Good Day!

The loaner Husky arrived late yesterday afternoon and since then we’ve been putting it to the test, bringing back all of your favorite trails.  In the past few weeks that Prinoth Husky in the images has travelled from Quebec to Salt Lake City and then on to Trail Creek; quite a journey.  It sounds like our own machine will be back as early as next week.  Its new engine is making a similar, but longer journey, having started in Italy and venturing through the Mercedes shop in Rock Springs along the way.

Today’s grooming did cover almost every trail.  Fresh classic tracks were placed everywhere and additional passes were made in the Close Field, Woolsey Woods, Armin’s, Moose Loop, and Animal Farm.

About three inches of snow has fallen since the beginning of grooming and is forecast to continue at a good clip for some time to come.  Skiing today while a little soft is beautiful, especially so as it is on some fresh Husky grooming.

Groomer’s choice for today is Armin’s.


Teton Co./Jackson Parks & Rec

Cache Creek Singletrack

Groomed by Friends of Pathways
Grooming Schedule: As Needed

Last Update: 12/28
Poor grooming conditions. machine tracks were digging deep into the base and the tiller could not cover them up without causing other issues because of all the rain and warm temperatures yesterday. Skiing will be somewhat poor with uneven conditions. The next few days are forecasted to be colder so the bases should firm up allowing me to groom on Friday.

Shooting Star

Grooming Daily
Last Update: 12/29
Tuesday’s rain/snow weather event left a several inch icy crust/slab that is not very pliable and the warm weather has caused settling throughout the trails. Today’s groom will require aggressive blade work to re-level to track and grooming will be ongoing through 10am. Look for the yellow loop to be finished by 8am and the orange perimeter loop by 10am. Trails should ski better than they look, as the current snow quality is granular and coarse. Good news is we are forecasted to receive 1-2 ft of snow over the weekend, which should help freshen things up after this past week’s turbulent winds, rain & snow events. Please keep up with the forecast as the next few days could get interesting.
