Trail Creek Report

Last Updated: 3/3

Find Your Trail!

There are literally a thousand places you could track your skis today within an hour’s drive. From freshly groomed Nordic trails, to back country wilderness crust cruising, choose your adventure and head on out and take advantage of all the special opportunities that we have in our special valley!

If your adventure today brings you to Trail Creek you will encounter some pretty nice skiing. Today’s priority for grooming was to rework the classic tracks so the Pisten Bully ventured out making a pass of almost every trail, resetting the classic tracks along the way and smoothing out the edges of the skate lanes to boot. While you might find a lingering goblin from all the wet heavy snow received recently, all in all you will find some pretty nice fast conditions.

As of 9:45 AM a little light snow was falling with a temperature of -10ºC/14ºF and mostly calm winds.

Everything is groomed in and looking good. The classic track is set and the skate lane is fairly smooth. It’s still soft but the forecast for the next few days should allow it to firm up. Enjoy!

Grooming Schedule: Monday, Wednesday, Friday

Groomed trails Friday evening. After lots of snow and warming temperaturs surface was challenging to groom. Hoping for consistent temperatures so we can get track back in shape.

Last Updated: 3/3
Skate: Good  Classic: Good
Finished grooming at 8:45am. Was able to use the ginzu groomer to flatten out and widen the trail. Reset classic track out and back. Trail looks great but still has a few soft spots. Have fun out there!

Teton Springs

Grooming Schedule: Monday, Wednesday, Saturday and Sunday
Last Updated: 3/2
Skate: Good  |  Classic: Fair
Just finished grooming the course, 4 passes around. Skate should be great. Gave classic a “fair” rating due to the poor conditions of the set tracks, but the course (out of the tracks) should be great.

Yeti’s Loop

Grooming Schedule: As Needed
Last Updated: 3/2 @ 7am
Skate: Good  |  Classic: Good
Did a few more laps on Yeti’s Loop Friday afternoon with the old ginzu. Got it cleaned up and buffed out.  Also set a classic track that will work well for classic skiing counter-clockwise.
Mike Harris should be plowed this morning…thank you Skyliners! Please park efficiently as the lot can only accommodate about nine vehicles. Are you enjoying this new trail?
