SKI REPORTS


Shadow Mountain Serenity

Skiing was nice up Shadow Mountain late today. Parallel snowshoe width tracks were a little rough but nice snow made for an easy ski up and nice glide down.  It is still possible to drive all the way to the gate with a car. -Steve S.

GROOMING REPORTS


Trail Creek Grooming Report

Last updated: 12/8

Race Day in Casper!

Many of our high school skiers are enjoying a sunny day in Casper as they compete in the second day of this weekend’s Wyoming High School Nordic race.  Results will be posted as soon as they become available.  If you are looking for your personal Nordic event you would surely be on the right track if you came on out to Trail Creek today for a great Nordic ski!

As of 11 AM conditions are looking quite nice with a warm temperature of -8ºC/18ºF and calm winds.  Overnight about a half inch of fresh snow fell which was just enough to do a nice job of freshening the trails while still leaving them very firm and fast.  Today’s grooming was mostly Pisten Bully skate grooming on all recently groomed trails with fresh classic tracks on a few trails (close field, Woolsey Woods, and Moose Loop) as well.  Early morning skiers were wearing smiles and giving positive reports.

Shooting Star Grooming Report

Last Updated: 12/8

Conditions remain great and should provide fun skiing through the weekend. Outlook is calling for some new snow accumulations for the middle of next week, which may finally allow us to set classic tracks…keep your fingers crossed! Next update will likely be this Wednesday.

Below are some other details:

  • 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)
  • Be aware of soft spots
  • No Classic Track will be set until snowpack increases
  • Conditions will improve as more snow accumulates
  • Grooming frequencies may vary depending on snow conditions

Enjoy!

Come out and ski! The sun is out and the snow is nice. We need more snow this week, but the weather has been great for maintaining our base!


Teton Co./Jackson Parks & Rec Grooming Report

Last Updated: 12/8

7:30am: The levee is finished and still in good shape. I am just starting Stilson and should be done around 9:30.

8:50am: Stilson is finished and looking good although the resident elk herd is out and about so they may have torn up the loop a bit. But still worth a ski and coming to check them out since it seems they will be around for awhile. The school fields will be done around 11:00am.


Grand Targhee Grooming Report

Last Updated: 12/8

XC OPEN (Last groomed AM 12/8/2018), Fat Bike OPEN.


Alta Track

Grooming Schedule: Tuesday, Thursday, Saturday, Sunday
Last Updated: 12/7/2018 21:00:52
Skate: Good  |  Classic: Good
Comments: I groomed up the track on Friday night so it could set up overnight. I tried to reset the classic track but realized after a little while that I was doing more harm than good, so I left it. The skate track is quite variable: really firm in some spots and remarkably soft in others. The southern loops are fairly firm and smooth. The northern loops are soft in spots and a bit lumpy. The entire track is definitely skiable, just be prepared for a variety of conditions. Enjoy!

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: 11/19/2018 11:06:49
Skate: Not Set  |  Classic: Not Set
Comments: Coming Soon!

Teton Canyon

Grooming Schedule: Monday, Wednesday, Saturday and Sunday
Last Updated: 12/7/2018 17:33:59
Skate: Good  |  Classic: Fair
Comments: Friday: Decided to groom late afternoon while the temperature was about 32. Softer snow allowed skate track to turn out nicely. Classic tracks still in fairly good shape from Wednesday’s groom. Not planning to groom tomorrow unless more than an inch of new snow falls overnight.

Teton Springs

Grooming Schedule: Tuesday, Thursday, Saturday
Last Updated: 12/2/2018 5:12:19
Skate: Poor |  Classic: Poor
Comments: Saturday, 12/1 Teton Springs was groomed for the first time this year. I’m giving the trail a “poor” condition due to the amount of vegetation poking through the groomed surface in a few areas. Most of the trail is in good condition. We need one more storm and the trail will be great.
Ski carefully as the base depth is only a few inches deep.

Last Updated: 12/1/2018 10:26:20

Last Updated: 12/3/2018 19:34:45
