Spring Road Clearing is Underway in GTNP Read More HERE. And depending on an overnight freeze, the crust has been skiing well. With Wednesday’s warm daytime temps, you may need to wait until we get 1-2 nights of temps in the 20s.
Note: March 16th was the last day for grooming from Taggart to Signal
Webcam with views of the Taggart end of the trail and the Grand Teton are on JHNordic.com . Check out snow and road conditions for the spring!
Groomer’s Comments – Turpin Meadow Ranch has closed for the winter season. Last trail grooming day was March 4th. The trails are open to skiers, fat bikes, and snowshoes, however, there will be no grooming, so expect to break trail. Some trail may continue to be packed by passing snowmobiles.
The TMR Lodge is closed until late spring.
See you this summer or next winter!
Back in reality in Wyoming we are having some really good skiing on this first day of spring. While there wasn’t quite enough snow for fresh classic tracks, the Ginzu Groomer made two passes of the entire network resulting in some pretty nice skate lanes. Classic skiers will be able to either utilize pretty good tracks with an inch of light snow or just jump on the skate lanes.
The elk have been having quite a party in the Woolsey Woods area, while they are definitely more wary of Nordic skiers than moose, they have relaxed a bit over the winter and you might catch a glimpse if you head that way.
Look for grooming Thursday and Saturday morning with grooming to be determined depending on weather and skier traffic after that. 11:15 AM conditions are cloudy, a light breeze, and a temperature of -1ºC/30ºF.
Groomer’s Choice for today is the East Fields.
Groomer’s Comments: Conditions continue to provide excellent Nordic skiing. Look for light snow to fall over the next several days which should make for an enjoyable outing. Another update will be sent once conditions change. Enjoy!
Groomer’s Comments: It’s a bit warm and soft but pretty good for spring
