January 27th Grooming Report
Beer and Banters!
While you will have to bring your own beer since this is a virtual event, if you Nordic ski in Jackson Hole, tonight’s virtual gathering would be a great event to have on your calendar. From the Jackson Hole Historical Society website:
Join Jackson Hole Historical Society & Museum (JHHSM) to explore Nordic skiing in Jackson Hole – the past, present and future. Panelists for the Online Beers & Banter conversation at 7 pm on Thursday, January 27 include Pete Karns, Martin Hagen, Phil Leeds,

Beers & Banter guests will talk about their personal experiences ranging from competing and winning medals as Nordic skiers to enjoying and actively supporting the sport in the valley. Online Beers and Banter will be moderated by JHHSM Executive Director Morgan Jaouen, following an informal, conversational format. At the end, an audience Q&A will complete the evening.
It should be a fascinating event, if you have time check it out.
Speaking of a great event, how about a Nordic ski at Trail Creek today? Our never ending string of fair weather and lapis lazuli skies continues yet another day. While morning temps were in the negative zero range, the official Prinoth Husky thermometer was registering temps in the 10º-15º range as grooming concluded, with those sure to climb in the blazing sunshine as the day progresses.
Today’s grooming covered almost every trail with double passes throughout the fields and on Moose Loop. Many classic tracks were touched up and all in all skiing continues to be great. As of report time the Masters Skate Clinic was just getting started.
Groomer’s choice for today is Moose Loop.
