Good Times on the Park Road

Fresh snow in groomed trail, soft but still enjoyable for skate and classic. Nice double class track still in place from Tuesday’s grooming.

We crossed xc ski campers from Wyoming Catholic College, Lander, returning from 3 nights snow camping, a freshman tradition.
Visited the historic Lucas Fabian cabins just off the groomed trail approx 2.5 miles out from the trail head. Saw a young female moose bedded down behind one cabin, who was very calm in spite of the conversation of us 5 nordic skiers some 40 ft away.

Also crossed a few dogs pulling their owners on ski and foot!

Post ski lunch at Dornan’s…perfect, quiet , snowy day in the Park.

Tribute to Sean O’Malley and Nordic News

Sean O’Malley, one of the early members of Jackson Hole Nordic Alliance who also previously published the local Nordic News is retiring from Teton County at the end of January 2019. We value Sean’s sparkle and local knowledge that he put into this and wanted to commemorate his contributions over the years to the Nordic community by looking back at an all-time favorite Nordic News issue from 2005.

Trail Creek Report

Last Updated: 1/10

Wilson Winter Sports!

What a beautiful site to see; rows of Nordic skis poised and ready to transport a bus load of our local school kids on an educational and exciting ski journey.  You can see this spectacle for yourself if you make it out mid-day on Tuesdays or Thursdays for the next few weeks.

You can see your own beautiful views if you grab your skis and come on out to Trail Creek for a great Nordic ski today.  As of 11:30 AM moderate snow was falling with calm winds and a temperature of -8ºC/18ºF.  The forecast only calls for an inch or two so even skaters should be able to make pretty good speed throughout the day.  For grooming today the Pisten Bully basically made a pass through all trails, touching up either skate or classic tracks whichever needed the most attention.  All in all whatever your technique wherever you want to go you will find nice skiing.  You might find more tracks than usual today as the moose seemed to be extra active today.

Groomer’s choice for today is Armin’s.

The last series of storms that passed through Targhee has left some pretty unique, rideable wind features all over the mountain. Dip off the groomers and find yourself some waves to ride! This tide will keep rising with 1-3″ expected throughout the day. Mostly cloudy skies w/ occasional snow showers, light winds, and a high of 28 will prevail today. Surf’s up!

I’ll be picking up where Tristan left off this morning, grooming this new snow for all you afternoon skiers! I have limited time so I’ll be focusing on the south part of the trail system and probably only the skate as the classic tracks are probably not filled in yet. I’ll be starting around 1:15 and should be done by 2:30 at the latest.
