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: 3/4

Spring Skiing!
It took a while but spring skiing conditions have finally arrived at Trail Creek, that time of year when skiing can go from a sheet of ice to the best ever to a slush fest in short order.  As of 11:15 AM the temperature is already up to 4ºC/39ºF with a gentle breeze and partly cloudy sky.  Thanks to Coach Sevi for the great shot from a few days ago!

Today’s Ginzu grooming covered all major trails with multiple passes.  Grooming began in the woods which were much softer early in the day.  Most woods trails received fresh classic tracks and skate grooming.  As conditions warmed grooming switched to the fields.  Classic tracks are a bit variable but skating is quite nice as of report time.  To see a pretty cool video of a Ginzu Groomer in action, click on the image.

Our resident elk are getting friendlier as the winter progresses.  They allowed some pretty close encounters this morning in Woolsey Woods.  Total ungulate counts for the day are near the 20 head.

In days ahead pick your trail by the time of the day; fields will probably be icy early on but really nice midday while woods will ski better throughout the day, but might never get that perfect window like the fields will do at the right time.

Groomer’s choice for today is Black Hole.

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.

Cache Creek and May park are groomed and are in good shape. The Cache Creek trailhead road is starting to get rough. With the next few days forecasted to be warm expect the road to be in poor condition and requiring 4 wheel drive. Game Creek will be done around 11.

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!

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

Grooming Today
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.

If the mid-week blues have you longing for the weekend, then take a break and head to the mountain. Fresh air, fast corduroy, and good times await; any day on the mountain is a good day! NOAA is calling for snow mainly between 9am and 2pm with a high near 29. The chance of precipitation is 60% with less than an inch possible. Winds out of the southwest of 16-22mph.

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

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
