Countdown to The JH Nordic Annual Event!

We haven’t hosted this event in two years and we are so excited to invite you to join this 5th Annual FREE Nordic Community Event at Turpin Meadow Ranch tomorrow, Sunday, January 8th, 2023! We are just 2 days away from the event so to celebrate let’s countdown with 7 reasons to attend (a new reason will be featured each day this week).

Winter Trail Etiquette

A well-cared-for winter trail can be a reprieve from the dark and cold days that come with the season.

Whether you’re a cross-country skiing novice, an intermediate fat biker, or an expert winter trail enthusiast, it’s good practice to review common winter trail etiquette and the specific trail map before zipping up your boots and setting out on the track.  

Trail etiquette starts by abiding by The Golden Rule, as winter recreators are all out there to get fresh air, exercise, and enjoy the natural beauty of winter. A warm smile can go a long way, especially on a cold 20-degree day – an optimal temperature for snow conditions for cross-country skiing. 

Jackson Hole Nordic Alliance’s Nancy Leon is a Community Connector

(Jack Catlin / KHOL)

Our very own Nancy Leon was interviewed by KHOL 89.1 recently to discus building a winter sports network and the upcoming annual event at Turpin Meadow Ranch.

Jackson Hole may be best-known as an alpine skiing destination, but the Jackson Hole Nordic Alliance wants to ensure that residents are informed and supported for bevy of alternative winter activities. The organization’s website, JHNordic.com, is a community-oriented resource designed to identify, map, describe, and share all the trail information on the extensive Nordic skiing, fat biking, and snowshoeing in the Jackson Hole, Teton Valley and Greater Teton region of Wyoming and Idaho.

TVTAP Winter Trails Challenge is Back!

It’s the 3rd year in a row for the Winter Trails Challenge, so I think we can officially now say it’s a thing. Get your team and your winter stoke ready…it’s time to log some miles.

So what is this Winter Trails Challenge? 
It costs Trails & Pathways more than $50,000 to groom and maintain Winter Trails in a season. While your purchase of a Winter Trails Sticker helps, we need to fundraise for the bulk of the budget so that we can keep that corduroy fresh for your snowshoes, classic skis, skate skis and fat bike.

Another great way to get in some miles with smiles is to attend the TVTAP “Ski with a Buddy” event on Wednesday, January 11th at Teton Reserve Nordic and/or Saturday, January 14th at the Alta Track. These free ski events will be happening from 11AM-2PM. You can sign up for the TVTAP winter trails challenge there! 15 minute lessons will be offered at 11:15 and 12:15. These events are free to everyone, just show up ready to cross country ski in either technique (classic or skate).

Trail Creek

Miles of Corduroy!

If you are lucky enough to make it out to Trail Creek today for a Nordic ski you will discover miles of fresh corduroy and classic tracks.  Overnight two to three inches of snow fell, combine that with some very Nordic friendly temps in the upper 20’s and the result is lots of great skiing.

Most every trail received at least one pass with the Husky with Moose Loop and the fields receiving multiple passes.  It would be a great day to punch the clock a little early and head on out to Trail Creek.

Skier pressure this afternoon will be a little on the light side as there is a high school race in Casper today and tomorrow.  While it would be a great excuse for a road trip if you’ve been itching to head over to Casper, you might be able to watch a bit of the action on the Casper Mountain webcam if a road trip is not on your agenda and you’re not able to come out for a ski this afternoon.

Groomer’s choice for today is Moose Loop.
