GROOMING REPORTS


Trail Creek Grooming Report

Last updated: 12/21 @ Noon

Clear as Mud?!

This weekend area youth are racing in both Cody and Bozeman.  While this might seem rather confusing, it is understandable with a bit of concentration.  Basically for high school age skiers they can participate in either the JHSC Nordic program or the Jackson High School Program.  JHSC operates Trail Creek but JHS also provides support.  The JHSC skiers participate in the IMD Nordic Division as it offers proximity and competition advantages over the High Plains Nordic Division which is mainly in Colorado and eastern Wyoming.  Most Wyoming high school Nordic teams participate in High Plains Nordic.

IMD has three qualifiers which results in top skiers who will attend nationals.  Wyoming High School host 6 races plus a state championship each year.  To make things even more confusing many Wyoming high schools attend the Soldier Hollow IMD race.  One final thing to throw into the complicated matrix is that our younger skiers also compete in the IMD Qualifiers and only younger skiers compete in the IMD Youth Championships.

This weekend’s IMD Qualifier in Bozeman is being attended by JHSC high school and younger members while the JHS team is competing in Cody.  While the situation is a little confusing, it all works out and the kids on both teams seem to get along just fine.  To confuse yourself even more you can check out the entire community Nordic calendar here.

Things are even a little confused here today at Trail Creek with howling winds creating a few issues on the trails. While the temperature is right at freezing and there is some lovely sunshine, the wind is one of the strongest of the year.  All trails received Pisten Bully skate grooming but classic tracks were not reset to save a little fuel as drifting is even happening in the woods.  There is also a lot of debris blowing off the trees onto the trails.

Shooting Star Grooming Report

Last Updated: 12/19

The trails received some extra blade work this morning to buff out a few soft spots that formed from this past weekend’s weather and the course should ski well for the majority of the day.  Outlook is calling for a winter weather system to pass through later this afternoon and linger through Thursday. Once the storm arrives expect possible drifting and snow accumulations to occur. Next update will be Friday. Enjoy!
