Winter Service Levels and Important Dates

Do you enjoy any of the trails that Teton County or the town of Jackson maintains during the winter season? If so, you’ll be happy to know that grooming will continue through March based on the snowpack and forecast. Conditions will be evaluated the week of April 3rd to determine if grooming can continue past that date. Please continue to check the Parks and Recreation website for up-to-date information including grooming and ice rink status:   http://www.tetonparksandrec.org/1338/Parks-Pathways

As a trail user and citizen of this fine area you are invited to the Parks and Recreation Public Open House at Teton County Library on Thursday, March 9th (5-7pm) and Friday, March 10th (1-3PM) to solicit public input on Winter Service Levels, as well as Karns Meadow Zoning and Melody Ranch Trailhead Bicycle Pump Track. For more information visit: https://engagetetoncountywy.com/tetonopenhouse

As a winter trail user, please take the time to have your voice heard through the winter service levels survey for 2022/2023.

Special Olympics Wyoming Winter Games in Jackson

Special Olympics Wyoming State Winter Games will be back in Jackson this year March 14-16!  We’re celebrating the 45th year of State Winter Games in 2023; these games began in Jackson in 1978.  Due to Covid restrictions and challenges, our athletes have not been able to come to Jackson in person since the 2020 State Winter Games; they are truly looking forward to their first year back!

Did you know that Special Olympics Wyoming:
Offers programming in every county in Wyoming, serves more than 1,600 Wyoming athletes across 16 sports, never asks athletes or their families to pay to participate, annually hosts 5 statewide competitions and many additional area competitions, sent a delegation of 45 athletes, coaches, Unified Partners, and staff to the 2022 Special Olympics USA Games in Orlando, including athlete Izzy Shanor from Jackson, and continues to grow and expand programming year after year.

We are still in need of volunteers for the competitions on Wednesday and Thursday.  If anyone is interested in assisting, please reach out to the office at (307) 235-3062 or sports@specialolympicswy.org.

Moose-Wilson Road summer construction schedule

With our deep snowpack, a favorite local classic cross country and snowshoe trail starting from the Granite Canyon trailhead running over the snow-covered  Moose-Wilson road north to LSR, is often a good choice into early April. However, GTNP announced today that the road will be closed to all users starting from April 10th.

A nice side alternative would be skiing/snowshoeing across the Meadow to the east of the road, as long as snow allows. Parking may be limited, so check with the GTNP South entrance. We will report back in early April as information becomes available on details.

The road from the LSRP south to Granite Canyon Entrance will open to through traffic, seven days a week, beginning June 30 at 7 p.m., with possible 20-minute delays. The Moose-Wilson Road project will be completed in phases and will provide for better driving, parking, hiking and accessibility for visitors, preserving the rustic character and opportunities for wildlife viewing.

Expect a full road closure from LSRP to Granite Canyon Entrance Station from April 10—May 26.

The road will open to weekend traffic only at 7 p.m. May 26—June 30.

Trail Creek

Last Update:
Tandem Like We Planned’em
Most people have heard of tandem bicycles, but have you heard of tandem skis? The Teewinots have, and it looks like they had a great time experimenting with them out at Trail Creek this week! Hopefully no arguments were settled with impromptu ski pole duels along the way! Thanks, Coach Libby, for the amazing and hilarious pictures!

Today’s grooming was a fairly comprehensive coverage of the system, varying between best line, double passes, and single passes as befitting the circumstances. Most fields trails got double passes, and the Stadium, Lower Stadium, and Lollipopper Land were all also groomed. Thanks to some light snow and drifting yesterday, conditions turned out very nicely in most places.

Groomer’s choice is Moose Loop.

Shooting Star

Grooming Daily
Last Update: 3/6
Weather pending GCM will be doing our annual application of black sand on the greens to naturally promote uniform snow melt. On Monday we’ll be grooming the greens throughout the day, which then needs to set up overnight to create a surface for us to walk on for applying the sand with rotary spreaders. The sand is to be applied Tues-Thursday (Subject to weather). Do not walk on the greens at any time. Throughout this week you will see machinery working during the day (snowcat, snowmobiles) and there could be some temporary rough sections, especially in areas where we are entering & exiting the greens. Grooming will also temporarily switch to evening grooming beginning at 5:30pm starting Monday and remain this way until this time sensitive operation is complete. Grooming in the evening is needed so we can apply the sand first thing in the mornings. Thanks for everyone assistance and skiing should remain enjoyable during this process.
