Nordic Skiing, Fat Biking and Snowshoeing for all! Once again the JH Nordic Alliance will be heading up to Turpin Meadow Ranch for a day filled with winter activities, food, coffee, fun, and a huge raffle. Welcomes community and visitors, families, kids of all ages, dog friendly (on leash), easy access thanks to a free Town-to-Turpin shuttle van.

Mark your calendar for the first Sunday in January: Sunday, January 5th from 10am to 3pm at Turpin Meadow Ranch (24505 Buffalo Valley Rd. Moran WY).

Event includes a free trail pass and free demos of innovative gear from local shops and suppliers. This unique once-a-year event provides a great opportunity to try out the latest cross-country classic, skate, backcountry Nordic skis, fat bikes, and snowshoes. This event is perfect to try out new winter trail activities for free. Nordic skis/gear of all sizes from ages 2-92 will be available.

Aside from the demos, there will be free lessons for those new to classic and skate skiing, USFS winter nature talks, snowshoe tours with Hole Hiking Experience, and back-country Nordic ski tours with JH Ecotour Adventures. If you have never cross country skied or want to explore on and off trail in the beautiful Bridger-Teton national forest, January 5th is the ideal day to try it out.

Turpin Meadows Ranch is a short drive from Jackson Hole (about an hour) in Buffalo Valley. Both lunch and hot and cold drinks will be available for purchase in the Turpin Meadows Lodge. A limited number of cozy, elegantly classic log cabins are available for an overnight stay by

reservation. (307) 543-2000. Or lots of lodging options in Jackson.

Dogs are welcome too! Leashes will be required for dogs near the main lodge but they are free to roam the trails, just be sure to clean up after them. 

Do not miss your chance to play in the snow and try out a new sport (or two!). And cozy up by the fire in Turpin Meadow Ranch Lodge.

And all the while, you get incredible views of the Tetons and Bridger Teton National Forest! Bring your camera – you might spot some elk or bison herd en route in Grand Teton National Park!
