Teton Co./Jackson Parks & Rec Grooming Update

Recreational trails in Teton County are supposed to stay groomed until March 15. But two of the most popular, Cache and Game Creek, will remain functional through Saturday, March 28.

Jackson/Teton County Parks & Recreation receives grant funding from the Wyoming State Trails Program, which keeps county trails groomed through March 15. But county staff recognized the value Cache and Game bring to the community, and due to the good snowpack this year, decided to extend grooming services through March 28.


Turpin Meadow Last Day Grooming

Final Grooming Update: Sunday, March 8, is our last day of grooming and the last day our lodge will be open this winter! We will have freshly groomed trails for the last day of skiing, snowshoeing, and fat biking. Our lodge will be open and serving lunch until 2:30! Come see us one last time and help us close down this awesome winter with a bang!  – Turpin Meadow Ranch

After Sunday, the trails will remain open (as most are on Bridger-Teton forest Service lands) , but no further grooming. The TMR Lodge has its last overnight Saturday night, and last lunch on Sunday. Still a deep base of snow thanks to an exceptional season for snow.

Thanks to Ron, Bobbi, Aaron (groomer and technical) and their fantastic team for hosting such a fantastic season!!

Loving the Sunshine!

A group of high school girls were having a great time making their own trails across the East Fields yesterday afternoon. Today yet another warm sunny day is in store. While early morning conditions are a bit on the icy side, another skier from yesterday reported great skiing around 10 AM and the teams had no complaints later in the afternoon, even if conditions did get a bit slushy.

Speaking of teams, the 10 athletes headed to the national championship at Donner Pass in California are now there, checking it out. Racing begins tomorrow with live streams available here and results available here.

Today’s grooming once again happened last night with the Ginzu groomer and with pretty good results. All major classic tracks were reset, as well as skate lanes receiving multiple passes. Much great skiing remains; just keep an eye on the thermometer to get just what you want, remembering that shady areas warm more slowly than those in the sunshine.

Snow returns tonight. Look for the next grooming Sunday morning.

P&R will continue grooming Cache and Game Creek through March 28th this year. Valley locations will be evaluated daily to determine when those will no longer be groomed. Our goal is to get through March 15th with valley locations. Keep checking back for updates!

The school fields are groomed and in good shape. The levee is groomed with a shallow classic track. Stilson groomed.

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

Trails are in great shape and will favor fans of fast skate skiing. The recent warm weather has transitioned our snowpack into a hard-packed and icy surface. Due to the firmness of the snow, classic tracks will not be set today and likely for the remainder of the season. Also, skiers should anticipate icier/fast conditions in the mornings that should evolve to softer/slushy snow in the afternoons as the temperature warms. Outlook is calling for a wintery mix of rain & snow to pass through this weekend. Have fun and enjoy the spring conditions!

Next Update: Monday


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.

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
