Fat Bike Grooming Update

Conditions are excellent, but please be sure to respect the grooming, as well as plan to get off the trails before snow becomes too soft. Groomers are trying to groom trails during the day to make it easier on the volunteers. Please respect the temporary closures. (Usually till the following morning to allow the trail to setup) Safety is paramount when the groomer is on trail. Enjoy!

Trail Creek Nordic

Last Updated: 3/3
Grooming Daily

Balance!
This poor guy has been wandering around for the past couple of days with half of his juvenile attempt at macho moosedom still clinging to his big brown head and the other half most likely abandoned to the small furry creatures of the forest floor.  It actually doesn’t seem to be bothering him much and within a couple months, it will surely be replaced with a much more substantial crown of glory.

If you are looking to hone your balance today, you might consider a Nordic ski.  As of 11 AM conditions at Trail creek are partly sunny but also with a few flakes coming from somewhere.  The temperature is quite warm being right at freezing; however, the wind is whipping along quite briskly today.

Today’s Ginzu grooming covered most major trails with combinations of skate and classic passes.  Classic tracks are a bit on the variable side today, ranging from quite nice to nonexistent due to drifting and hard conditions in some spots.  Skating will mostly be quite nice with carve able and fast conditions most places with the exception of a few icy patches in southern exposures.  With a little flexibility and balance a great skiing experience can be had today!

Groomer’s choice for today is Animal Farm.


Turpin Meadow Ranch

Grooming Daily

Everything was groomed fresh this morning! It is substantially warmer today than the last few days, so the trails will be quite soft. But that’s no excuse to not come up! (With your dog of course!) Hope to see you this week before we close! Stay classy, Jackson Hole.

Teton Pines Nordic

Last Updated: 3/3
Grooming Daily

We are closing early(3pm) on Tuesday March 3, but will resume normal hours on Wednesday March 4 (9am-4pm).

Conditions are still good and holding steady but watch the thermometer as we are in some pretty serious freeze/thaw cycles from now until the end of the season. The skiing will be best late morning after the temps begin to raise. Skate skiing conditions are typically awesome this time of year but classic track skiing conditions can vary drastically. The warm days make resetting the classic track challenging so please bear with us as we rapidly approach the end of the season! We’ve had incredible ski conditions and grooming for the past 100 days—so please thank our great groomers(Mike, Mark, and Curt)when you see them!

Our entire classic rental fleet is on sale now as we prepare to bring in a new rental fleet next season!
Classic package:
Salomon Snowscape 7 skis
Salomon Escape/Siam/etc boots
Swix poles
Total: $275 (dates for pickup vary on size you need—call us for details).

We have spring gloves, base layers, hats, jackets and a few pairs of pants remaining! We also have great deals on classic, BC, and skate skiing poles, boots, and skis!


Shooting Star Nordic

Grooming Daily

March is officially here and hints of spring weather are expected to appear! This week should provide plenty of enjoyable days for Nordic skiing. With the days being longer, combined with above freezing high’s, expect the snow to be ever evolving throughout the day and icy patches may frequent certain exposures. Have fun!

Next Update: Friday


Teton Village Pathway Trail

Update: 2/22

Teton village pathway trail – groomed on Tuesday. Firm, packed snow.
 

Jackson Hole Golf and Tennis Club

Update: 2/22

Skier Update: Trail is ‘ groomed’ – not perfectly smooth corduroy, more “flattened and rolled”. Occasionally, there is a classic cross-country track, sometimes not. Certainly a nice hour and bit around the golf course with great views, a fun place to ski if you are looking for a new flat, groomed trail to try out.

Groomed with classic track on Tuesdays, Thursdays, and Saturdays.


Grand Targhee Nordic & Fat Biking

Last Updated: 3/3

Expect soft, playful conditions on the mountain with the chance of a little sunshine peeking through the clouds throughout the day. Skies will be partly sunny, temperatures will be cooler with a high near 23. Expect occasional snow showers in the morning with additional accumulations up to 1″.

Cross Country/Fat Bike 15k: XC OPEN (Last groomed 3/3/2020), Fat Bike CLOSED.

Nordic:Breezy, but not moving snow so far. All multi-use trails groomed this morning. Tree Loop and perimeter of Upper Surveyor also. Headed for the Golf Course now. Hopefully will have Golf Course and CCC trails done by lunchtime (Editor’s update: Mike won’t get to the CCC Pond trails today). About 16F degrees at Nordic Equipment Building this morning, slight breeze. Have a nice day.

Fat Bike 2/13: All Lower Kelly Park is groomed with a great riding base. Should be perfect conditions for the next 3-5 days due to high pressure system. For more information contact Geared Up, 307-399-5539 c.307-760-1912, www.gearedupbikes.com
