Help us create and deliver the information that you enjoy most!
JHNordic is looking for community input to assist us in improving our digital platforms and community information services on Jackson Hole Winter Trails recreation – Nordic skiing, fat biking & snowshoeing.
JH Nordic is community-based and designed for you – we want to learn from you!
Raffle Prizes for participation! 10 survey participants will be randomly selected to win either the latest JH Nordic buff or a JH Nordic NoSo patch.
The Ski Club decided late this morning to cancel the Ski Swap due to respect for community health concerns.
“This is a truly gut-wrenching decision to make,” Chief Marketing Officer Jeff Moran said in a prepared statement. “We’ve been working with Teton County Public Health and other partners to create a safe and responsible event plan, but when our team stopped to consider all possible outcomes, we realized the safety of our community has to outweigh the fundraiser.”

Winter outlook in JH
Where to go Nordic skiing, fat biking, snowshoeing on our winter trails.
Jim Woodmency of MountainWeather.com (JHNordic Trail Report weather source) just published his Winter Outlook as “Snowy Again”, synthesizing his meteorological sources from NOAA (National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration’s Climate Prediction Center), Farmer’s Almanac, and historical trends. Check out his latest report.
And while we’re looking ahead, it’s a great time to start planning for some new trails to explore. This winter, more than ever, getting out on your Nordic skis, fat bike, snowshoes, or just a walk will be the perfect way to recreate, workout, have some fun-filled socially-distancing with friends and family. It’s amazing what new and favorite classic trails you can find via the JHNordic.com‘s Search feature!
