GROOMING REPORTS


Trail Creek Grooming Report

Last updated: 12/13

Double Classic Tracks!

Today at Trail Creek was a catch up day with the result being that most of yesterday’s lovely snow has been transformed into some very nice ski tracks.  As of 12:15 PM the temperature is -9ºC/16ºF with a very thin overcast, calm winds, and the most classic tracks we have had yet this year plus double classic tracks throughout the close field.

The Pisten Bully was able to make quick work of the soft stuff; making double passes complete with fresh classic tracks nearly everywhere.  While the corduroy and classic tracks are nice and crisp, the skate lanes might be just a smidge soft yet.  About 20% of the classic tracks are still from late in yesterday’s grooming.  While we are getting really close for the East Fields, the ruler is still not quite at the 24 inches usually required although negotiations are ongoing.

Groomer’s choice is Homesite.

Shooting Star Grooming Report

Last Updated: 12/12

The recent snow accumulations allowed us to set the classic tracks today. Although our snowpack is still on the lower side, we expect to continue setting the classic tracks for the foreseeable future. Anticipate snow showers today with occasional drifting. Outlook is for calmer weather tomorrow and conditions should continue to firm up through Friday. Next update will be Saturday. Have fun.

Below are some other details:

  • Classic tracks won’t be set on holes 1 & 2 until more snow accumulates.
  • Tight corners may be soft/rough as its difficult for the grooming equipment to navigate through them(Example: Sharp Turn from 8 Green to 9 Tees)
  • Early Season Conditions Persist (Rocky/grassy/Inconsistent profile depth & compaction)

Enjoy!

Teton Co./Jackson Parks & Rec Grooming Report

Last Updated: 12/13

8:30am: The school fields and the levee are finished and in great shape. Both classic and skate lanes should ski well. Stilson will be done around 11:00am.

9:50am: The Pistenbully is currently broken down. The main loop at Stilson is finished and a skate lane to Wilson is in good shape. I will update once we have a time frame for the Pistenbully to be repaired. As of now I will take the roller out tomorrow.

6:50pm: The Pistenbully is fixed thanks to our snowcat mechanic, Berg! I have to pick it up tomorrow morning so all trails will be finished a bit later than usual.


Grand Targhee Grooming Report

Last Updated: 12/13

Cross Country/Fat Bike 15k: XC OPEN (Last groomed AM 12/12/2018), Fat Bike OPEN.


Alta Track

Grooming Schedule: Tuesday, Thursday, Saturday, Sunday
Last Updated: 12/13/2018 10:53:57
Skate: Good  |  Classic: Good
Comments: Andy went out Wednesday night to roll out the new snow and set the track. I went out this morning to reset the classic track on some wind affected loops. I made a couple of passes to widen the trail where last night’s wind created minor drifting. Conditions are firm and groomed generally flat.

Driggs

Grooming Schedule: Monday, Wednesday, Friday
Last Updated: 12/6/2018 20:45:13
Skate: Poor  |  Classic: Not Set
Comments:Plowed a bunch of snow in the ditches and rolled out the trail to establish a base. The base depth is more shallow than the mowed grass. I’d recommend waiting till we get a few more inches of snow before skiing the Driggs Track. Let it snow!!!

Sherman Park

Grooming Schedule: Monday, Wednesday, Friday
Last Updated: 12/11/2018 20:49:31
Skate: Fair  |  Classic: Not Set
Comments: Got the park rolled out this evening! It will be a good base for more snow to come tomorrow. It’s good to be skiing in Victor!

Teton Canyon

Grooming Schedule: Monday, Wednesday, Saturday and Sunday
Last Updated: 12/13/2018 7:52:43
Skate: Good |  Classic: Good
Comments:Thursday: Yesterday made 4 passes with the roller to compact the 8-12 inches of new snow. This morning plan to use the Ginzu to reset both skate and classic tracks. After cold night, think both should turn out well, if not a bit soft. Finish by 11am.

Teton Springs

Grooming Schedule: Tuesday, Thursday, Saturday
Last Updated: 12/13/2018 10:24:29
Skate: Good |  Classic: Good
Comments: I rolled out about 6″ of fresh snow from yesterday’s storm. It packed well, but will remain soft for a bit. There is still some vegetation poking through, but the coverage is good overall and everything is very skiable. I laid out the classic track and the skate track; they should be nice once they set up a bit. Keep an eye out for two beautiful swans on one of the ponds near the track. Enjoy!
