Grooming Update -December 10th -
Check out the new 2018-19 Jackson Hole Winter Trails & Pathway Map (at right).
Printed maps are now available from all JH Nordic Alliance member locations. Thanks to Teton Co/Jackson Community Pathways, Friends of Pathways, JH Lodging Tax/Travel and Tourism Board, Teton Pines Nordic, Turpin Meadows, and JHNordic for their support. An informative, practical complement to the GPS maps and info on JHNordic.com.
New 2018-19 Grooming schedules are posted below, similar to last year in Jackson Hole and Teton Valley.
The early season snow base is gradually building up, with a number of groomed trail and ungroomed tracks offering good quality early season nordic skiing and fat biking. While most most trails have been groomed, many do no have the snow depths to set a classic XC track (only a smooth snow surface). These trails are still very classic XC skiing friendly, (as well as Skate skiing), just no parallel track to keep the classic skis easily going straight.
