Teton Ridge Classic – Jan 9th

Saturday, January 9th is drawing near, bringing the 18th annual Ridge Classic with it. The Grand Targhee based event benefits both Teton Valley Trails and Pathways and the Teton Valley Ski Education Foundation. The race will start at 10 am, with the 24km, 14km, and 7km races starting at intervals separated by 20 seconds. Individual start times will be emailed to registered participants on Friday before the race.

Race packet pickup 5:00 to 7:00 PM Friday night before the race at Streubel Physical Therapy (285 East Little Ave) in Driggs, and from 8:00 – 9:45 AM at the race start on race day. Masks will be required for packet pick up at Streubel PT and at check in on race morning. Curbside pick-up is also available at Streubel PT on Friday night. There is no race day registration. Results will be posted online and at the start/finish area as they become available on race day.

This year we will not be having a post-race lunch and awards ceremony due to COVID precautions. The price of the event has been lowered to reflect this.

There will be 2 self-serve aid stations out on the course with small individual bottled water and individual packets of energy gel/Hammer Gel. There will be no handouts of drink or gels at the aid stations. Aid stations will have volunteers re-suppling drinks and gels on the aid station tables.

Trail Creek Nordic

Last Updated: 1/5

Rustic!
Rustic will definitely be an adjective today if you are lucky enough to get out for a Nordic ski.  We received 8-10 inches overnight on top of yesterday’s 6 inches with more or less blustery weather happening this morning along with times of heavy snow fall with patches of sunshine in between, the result being a lot of work to do to get our trails all back in tip top condition.

The Pisten Bully is scheduled to return to service later in the day and there was no chance of keeping the Ginzu moving through the heavy snow this morning, so the roller was the implement of choice today.  The good news is that pretty much every trail did receive multiple passes and the snowfall is pretty much winding down.  What you will not find today are classic tracks, however, classic skiers should be able to find much joy in the marvel of the new fallen snow and the reality that the rolled snow is pretty firm thanks to the warm temperatures.  Skaters will encounter the opportunity for more workout per kilometer than usual which can be a good thing.

Racing returns this weekend, click on the map above for a more detailed image.  The race course will be closed to the public on Friday and Saturday but most of the woods will be open and hopefully Pisten Bully groomed by then.

Groomer’s choice for today is a classic ski through the woods.

Teton Pines Nordic

Last Updated: 12/30
Daily grooming, wide corduroy skate ski lanes with well defined classic tracks make for excellent ski conditions. Skate and classic cross country ski/ boots/ pole rentals. All service is outside, so come dressed to ski.

We still have lots of nordic gear in our shop if you need to pick up some last minute gifts for the nordic skiers on your list! We currently have a good selection of sizes in skate  gear ( skis/boots/poles) but our classic gear is currently in short supply. We are expecting a small shipment of classic skis around Jan 1. We have a great selection and supply of hats, jackets, pants, socks and gloves by Daehlie, Skida, and Swix. If you want to explore Grand Teton NP and the Jackson Hole area on xc skis, we carry the must have xc ski trail guidebook for our region in the shop:  https://www.facebook.com/SkiYellowstone
