Trail Report: Alta

Alta is a beautiful place to ski, especially when the Tetons are in view! Flat with gentle hills, enough to get a great work out. Dog friendly…See info, map and elevation profile here. Photo credit: Derek N.

Busy Weekend!

Decisions, decisions, decisions…  Area Nordic racers are going to be spread over 700 miles of the Rocky Mountain west with all the possible venues this weekend.  Starting from the east to the west, high school racers are off to Casper for Wyoming High School Nordic racing Friday and Saturday, area Sandbaggers will surely show up at the Spud Chase over in Teton Valley Saturday, and our IMD racers are off today for the third and final junior national qualifier at Bogus Basin Saturday and Sunday.  If you’ve got a bit of the “Valley Fever” and a road trip sounds good, there are plenty of possibilities this weekend.  If you can’t get away, at least you should find plenty of space on your local Nordic Trail.

As of 1 PM it is partly cloudy and breezy with a temperature of -11ºC/12ºF.  Today’s grooming was double Pisten Bully passes with fresh classic tracks of the entire Moose Chase course.  A few minor connectors were put in for the first time but tracks have firmed up nicely since recent storms.  There is some moderate drifting going on in the fields but the woods sections should stay nice all day.

Groomer’s choice for today is Homesite.

8:25am: The school fields and the levee are groomed and in good shape. Both should be much firmer than Tuesday as long as they are given some time to setup. I am heading to Stilson shortly and should be done around 11:00.

Grand Targhee Grooming Report
Last Updated: 2/7

The powder’s been light and deep enough these last few days for the fabled snowdragons to emerge; you can see these elusive creatures tearing down the slopes, an arc of snow crescendo-ing on every turn. There’s an explosion of light powder then they’re gone, fading into the snowscape, leaving behind only a set of deep tracks. With an additional 3″ overnight, many of these tracks will be refilled. Bundle up, aim tips downhill, and disappear through those clouds of snow as you slide and slash down the mountain!

Cross Country/Fat Bike 15k: XC OPEN (Last groomed AM 2/7/2019), Fat Bike OPEN.


Pinedale Nordic Trail Report
Last Updated: 2/5

All trails above groomed this morning except Powerline, Flatline and Heart Attack. 8″ of new snow from yesterday. 27F degrees, overcast, slight breeze. Road plowed and snow packed. Parking areas plowed. Expect soft conditions again today. Classic skiing would be my choice.


Alta Track

Grooming Schedule: Tuesday, Thursday, Saturday, Sunday
Last Updated: 2/6 @ 11pm
Skate: Good |  Classic: Good
Finished up grooming shift at 11pm (Wednesday night). Left the classic track alone as it looked really good (Ned set it today). Pulled the Ginzu groomer for two laps on entire trail system (skate lane only).
Track is still a little soft, but not bad considering all the new snow we just received.
Several minor changes have been made at intersections for Saturday’s Alta Vista race.
I plan on rolling the kids hill tomorrow (before afternoon Nordic practice).
Have fun and stay warm!
