Dogs on the Trails

Just a friendly remainder, please remember to clean up after your pets in dog friendly areas, specifically the Wilson Centennial Trail. There are lots of mutt mitt stations along the trail to aid in clean-up. We encourage dog owners to make the extra effort to keep our trails clean so they can remain dog friendly.
For those looking for dog-free trails, check out Teton Pines, Trail Creek, Grand Targhee and skier tracked trails in Grand Teton National Park.

Trail Creek Report

Last Updated: 2/12

Looking for Grunts?!

From Coach Kathy, “I told the Lollipoppers there was a family grunts living under the bridge. And then we worked on herringbone and grunted all the way to the top. Beautiful snow! “.  Wee little ones learning to ski is always an amazing thing.

Speaking of amazing things, JHSC qualified seven athletes for Junior Nationals in Alaska; Sam Johnson, Elijah Weenig, Kate Brigham, Natalie O’Brien, David King, Bridger Stiles, Mason Wheeler after the conclusion of the Intermountain Division Nordic racing season last weekend in Idaho.  Way to go skiers!

Even more amazing things are in store for you today if you make it out to Trail Creek.  As of 12:15 PM the sun was shining, the wind was calm, and the temperature was a very Nordic friendly -3ºC/27ºF.  Today’s grooming was double Pisten Bully passes of the Moose Chase Course complete with fresh classic tracks. Conditions have firmed nicely with some really nice skiing today.

You will notice a new trail going into the A frame cabin in the woods which is for our gracious hosts the Seiferts who will be coming to stay for a while beginning Saturday.  Make sure to wave if you see them as much of what we ski on is their property.

An interesting note was received by one of our long time members who has a great knowledge of snow; “Base Study Plot information at JH Resort:  Depth: 50”, avg: 33” we have 151% of normal while total snowfall: 118”, avg: 112”.   We are 105% of norm.  Difference between depth and snowfall could be explained by temps. The cold, light density snow has not yet settled.”

If you’ve been out you can’t help noticing how deep the snow is, one of the main differences this year is that we just haven’t had a thaw yet this winter.  Thanks for the report.

Groomer’s choice for today is to just get out and enjoy this top 10 Day.

Teton Co./Jackson Parks & Rec Grooming Report
Last Updated: 2/12

8:00am: The school fields and the levee have been groomed and both are in great shape. I am heading to Stilson shortly and should be done around 10:30.

10:00am: Stilson is finished and in good shape although there are a few rough spots. The trail was completed drifted in at spots from last nights winds which can lead to challenging grooming. I got it level again after lots of laps and should be ready for next storm.

Shooting Star Grooming Report
Last Updated: 2/9

The moose are out and taking advantage of the amazing Nordic conditions. Be on the lookout for these fuzzy guys as they seek refuge from the deep snow. The course received extensive blade work over the last few days to assist w/leveling the track. Expect softer skiing to remain as plenty of the white stuff is expected to accumulate through all next week. Enjoy!

Next Update: Wednesday
Note: Track in excellent condition, thanks to Friday intensive grooming.


Grand Targhee Grooming Report
Last Updated: 2/12

Déjà vu! Another 8″ in 24 hours, just for you! We’ve officially surpassed the 300″ mark and that means it’s time to celebrate! Slash some pow, flash a smile and say thank you Mother Nature for your tidings! And then of course, head to open mic night at the Trap from 3-6pm and boogie woogie. Like the snow dance, but better.

Cross Country/Fat Bike 15k: XC OPEN (Last groomed AM 2/12/2019), Fat Bike CLOSED.
