Skinny Skis updates – Banff Virtual Partnering with GTNPF

Proceeds to Support GTNPF’s Teton Crest Trail Renewal ProjectFebruary is typically Banff Film Festival month here in Jackson when we get to invite all of our friends in the community to join us down at the high school to watch some amazing films together. Obviously, this year is not a typical year! Hopefully, you have already heard that we’ve moved the festivities onto the web, so you can “virtually” enjoy the film festival in your PJ’s at home this year. 

During the month of February, we will be donating all of the proceeds Skinny Skis earns from Banff Festival rentals to the Grand Teton National Park Foundation and their Teton Crest Trail Renewal Project. The project started last year with a focus of work getting done on Hurricane Pass. The upgrades will continue this summer, 2021, with projects along the south fork of Cascade Canyon and the first phase of improving the Paintbrush Divide. You can read more info on what they’re planning in 2021 further down in the newsletter.

Trail Creek Nordic

Last Updated: 2/8

Off and Running with a New Week!
A not quite so busy Monday is moving ahead full speed today at Trail Creek.  The not quite so busy part is that the oldest practice groups have the day off because they’ve had a busy weekend racing, but we’ll still have plenty of skiers with Lollipoppers, Teewinots, Devos, and Juniors on snow today. 

It looks to be a lovely day to ski, except for perhaps just a bit too much breeze.  Not much snow has fallen since yesterdays’ grooming although there has been a bit of drifting in the fields.  Today’s grooming started with the Pisten Bully laying fresh classic tracks throughout the fields with some additional grooming in preparation for today’s practice schedule.  That was followed by rolling and Ginzu grooming on pretty much every trail.  Some of the skate lanes are a bit soft, although mostly what you will find today is nice skiing. 

The rest of the week is as it has been lately with Wednesday being the busiest day and Thursday the quietest.  Our IMD racers are off to McCall, ID for the final qualifier of the season Friday and Saturday.

Groomer’s choice for today is Moose Loop.

Wind will likely continue to dominate the storyline as another storm cycle is planned to move in on Thursday. We continue to get the trails smooth each morning, but would anticipate that skiing may be more enjoyable with a classic or touring setup if windy conditions exist. Next update will be Thursday 2/11. Enjoy!

I was able to roll hillbender’s, upper Lady slipper, and happy hour. Nemo is currently rider packed and we are unable to groom due to the downed tree. I tried to groom Pole Canyon connector but that’s a no go. We will need some volunteer shovelers to work on that one. Enjoy the ride.

  • Morel Mushroom Foraging in the Tetons
    Let’s make lemonade out of lemons.. the lemonade being morel mushrooms and the lemons being the lingering cold temperatures (snow, sleet, and hail). What comes with so much needed precipitation are morels! Morel mushrooms are fungi that grow in the filtered light of forests. These oddly shaped mushrooms graze the valley floor and make for a fun activity for the whole family. Walking through the woods or floating the Snake River with a keen eye… Read More
