GTNP Spring Crust Cruise & Bike

This has been the perfect weather and snow combo to crust cruise (skate and classic) before 11am, then switch to your bike as the day warms.

We had endless open meadows to ski, starting at the Cottonwood gate ( just north of Taggart), with no one in site. Then we spotted a skier barely visible in the distance circumnavigating Timbered Island (east of Teton Park road, 1 1/2 miles north of Taggart).

Next week looks to have similar conditions. Whether you get out in your skis in the crust, or your bike on the vehicle free road, be sure to go!!


April Nature News: Snow Melts and Wildlife Migration Begins

Provided by the Hole Hiking Experience
March ended with a big winter storm which is not uncommon for the start of spring in Jackson Hole. I notice spring’s arrival by the change in nature sounds, as winter releases its grip and birdsongs fill the air. Flickers call for mates. Redwing blackbirds sing to establish territories and attract a female. Walking the bike path south of town, listen for the song of the meadowlark and look for the flash of a mountain bluebird. As each day gets brighter, nature responds. 

Animals are beginning to move to summer territories and bears are emerging from dens. Wildlife dance with the weather… snowy days limit progress but then the sun and warmth spur movement again.  Elk have begun to leave the regional feed grounds. The National Elk Refuge, near the town of Jackson, encompasses about 24,700 acres and is only ¼ of the historical size of elk wintering grounds. Over time, elk have lost suitable habitat as people moved into Jackson hole.


Thank you to our Groomers and all trail operators

THANK YOU to all our groomers, trail operators and public land management for hosting our endless Nordic and Winter trails. We are grateful for our groomed, ungroomed, winter wilderness areas and recreational spaces in Jackson Hole, Teton Valley, and Grand Teton National Park and beyond.

It has been a great season and it’s not quite finished for a number of locations. TVTAP trails, Shooting Star and Targhee continue to groom through this weekend, with some trails continuing on into mid April. Crust cruising will also be good for some time!


Teton (the dog) loves Jackson Hole’s dog friendly Nordic trails!

Teton is a beloved pet of one of our Silver Sponsors. We sure do love taking our pets on our favorite winter trails, don’t we? Don’t forget that you can filter out trails that are “dog-friendly” on jhnordic.com/trails.


We encourage winter trail users to support all of our grooming teams across Jackson Hole and Teton Valley. When possible please consider a donation to the trails you frequent. Please leave a comment such as “grooming” or “Nordic” in the designation or campaign section.


Trail Creek

Grooming Daily
Last Update: 4/1

Final Edition!
At 4:54 PM the Husky shut down after the final session of the year, wrapping up yet another glorious day and year at Trail Creek and what a year it has been!

In the dark days of November and December we wondered if we would even have a Nordic season as the snow was not materializing.  The Betty Woolsey did pull the Nordic community together on skate skis for a great day, even though there wasn’t even enough snow for the traditional classic tracks.  As 2024 rolled in, our snowy fortunes changed, bringing day after day of great skiing, so much so that the snow pack returned to normal allowing our three day January high school IMD competition to be a great success.  Record numbers of Lollipoppers, Teewinots, Ositos, and Devos joined our Prep/Comp and Junior teams in January as well, making for some crazy busy afternoons.  The Master skiers and elementary school winter sports programs also jumped into the melee as the winter rolled on.  We logged thousands of recreational skier days, our JHSC racers once again excelled nationally and internationally, and finally we wrapped up with the three day International Spring Series FIS race, capping off another season for the record books.

Nordic skiing can be a lifelong passion; most days we have skiers from kindergarten to well past social security age.  None of what we do would happen if there weren’t a whole lot of people that think Nordic skiing is a really good thing for not only themselves, but the youth and adults of our community as well.  Literally thousands of volunteer hours, generous community financial support, and the endless energy of our coaching staff, administrative staff, and youth skiers all come together to make this amazing thing we call JHSC Nordic and Trail Creek a wonderful thing, year after year.  Thank you if you are part of this community!

Before signing off until next year, prior to shutting down at 4:54 PM, the Husky made a final skate/classic pass through pretty much every trail in the system resulting in some lovely corduroy and classic tracks.  Watch the sun in the days to come, but there’s still time for one more amazing Nordic ski at Trail Creek.

Groomer’s choice for today is Trail Creek.
