Southern Valley Nordic

Grooming Schedule: Tuesday, Friday & Sunday

We need more snow before grooming can begin. The good news is that the dry weather enabled the installation of a new bathroom facility at the Mike Harris trailhead. The pathway construction has come to a halt for the winter season. We do not plan on grooming the pathway corridor this winter due to the lack of a safe access across the highway.

No dogs December 1 – April 15.

NEW VENUE! We are working hard to create an amazing Nordic trail for you to enjoy around the Teton Reserve golf course. The trail will be about 7KM in length and have 100 ft. of elevation gain/loss. Teton Reserve plans to have their Clubhouse open (normal business hours) for the public to utilize the bathroom facility, and purchase a warm drink or pint of something frothy. We need about a foot of snow before taking the groomer out on the course. Stay tuned for more updates.

No dogs allowed.
