Informal Small Group Skiing at Trail Creek

Due to current coronavirus health concerns, we regret that this Thursday’s final Nordic Masters Rec Skate Ski Clinic is cancelled.

For those still interested in skate skiing this afternoon, an informal small group will be skiing at Trail Creek Nordic Center – meeting at 11am at the Ski Club cabin. We respect the need for appropriate social distancing. Don’t forget to bring $15 for your trail fee.

Good “off-season” spring classic and skate skiing currently at Trail Creek.

The Board of Directors and the leadership staff of the Jackson Hole Ski & Snowboard Club (JHSC) have canceled the 45th Annual Rendezvous River Sports Karen Oatey Pole Pedal Paddle (PPP), scheduled for April 4, 2020 to help mitigate the spread of COVID-19 “Coronavirus.” JHSC was subsequently informed that the Teton County Commissioners have denied the special event permit for the same reasons in action taken at the public meeting March 16. 

Stay tuned for information about how we will be celebrating the 5-year anniversary of the Karen Oatey Scholarship Endowment, and our progress with scholarships at the Club.

Grooming Daily

All Caught Up!
Today’s grooming happened last night with the Ginzu groomer.  Temps had warmed into the low 40’s yesterday afternoon allowing the Ginzu to not only make some pretty nice corduroy on the skate lanes, but a new classic track was set on almost every major trail with mostly positive results.

Conditions will be very fast early in the morning, warming as the day proceeds so pick your time by watching the thermometer and how fast you like your skiing.

Yesterday was a surprisingly busy day as people are looking for healthy ways to get exercise.  Just remember to keep your social distance and follow all the rest of the appropriate procedures and we can hopefully maintain this resource for some time yet.

The next grooming will be late this afternoon.

Groomer’s choice for today is to keep healthy.

8am: Cache Creek and May park are groomed and in good shape. Game Creek will be finished around 11.

Last Updated: 3/17
Grooming Daily

Snow conditions are NOT safe outside of the groomed trails. All traffic needs to remain on the groomed areas as the current snow coverage is very deceiving and inconsistent, increasing the likelihood of injuries. 

Trails this week will be icy during the morning period. Expect conditions to soften as temperatures warm. Grooming will shift to evenings beginning today at 5pm. The current snow profile is very trying on equipment. We’ll do our best to continue providing a quality product, but expect icier spring style skiing. Thanks and be safe. 
 

Jackson Hole Golf and Tennis Club

Update: 3/9

From our Nordic track maintenance team:

With rising temperatures and winter coming to an end, adjustments will be made to the route of the groomed trail. Beginning this past weekend, the trail will only be groomed on the north side of Spring Gulch Road.

This accomplishes two important things. For one, it allows us to extend the grooming period of the season because as the roadways clear it becomes increasing difficult and unsafe for the staff to cross the roads with grooming equipment. In addition, suspending grooming operations south of Spring Gulch Road helps us minimize disturbances to the local moose population. In general, please be extra mindful not to disturb wildlife during this important period for their winter survival.

Nordic: Trails above were groomed yesterday morning and should be in decent shape. CCC Ponds grooming is done now due to March 15 wildlife restrictions in place for migrating deer – and they are migrating. If you do use those trails, please give wildlife their space and control your dogs. With these warm temperatures, probably won’t groom the golf course more unless we get a big snow. Thank you to the folks who have helped keep the trails clean and picked up after their pets – that has been a huge help. Thank you also to Andrew Zook who volunteered to groom the fat tire trails – has helped to divert bikes off the ski trails. Will groom above as weather allows.

Fat Bike 2/13: All Lower Kelly Park is groomed with a great riding base. Should be perfect conditions for the next 3-5 days due to high pressure system. For more information contact Geared Up, 307-399-5539 c.307-760-1912, www.gearedupbikes.com

Grand Teton National Park
Teton Park Road

Last Updated: 3/17
Grooming Has Ended

Spring plowing began in Grand Teton National Park on Monday, March 16. The plowing operations mark the end of over-snow access on the 14-mile section of the Teton Park Road between Taggart Lake Trailhead and the Signal Mountain area.

For safety reasons, visitors may not access the Teton Park Road once plowing operations are underway.   Rotary snow removal equipment and plows may be working at any time, and the roadway will be closed to all uses at all times until further notice. Skiers and those on snow shoes using areas adjacent to the roadway are cautions to avoid the arc of snow blown from the rotary equipment because pieces of ice and gravel can be thrown great distances.
