The Teton County/Jackson Parks and Recreation Department (TCJPR) is currently implementing our normal seasonal grooming schedule. Seasonal grooming occurs generally from December 15th to March 15th each year. Snow depths around the valley and drainages are just sufficient enough to utilize the Department’s PistenBully PB100. Staff currently grooms Tuesday through Saturday with the assistance of Bushong Property Services on Mondays up Cache Creek to Noker Draw. Follow us on Twitter @TCJPRGrooming which is linked to the webpage for daily updates on conditions or changes in the schedule. Grooming is made possible through TCJPR operational funds and the Wyoming State Parks, Historic Sites & Trails RTP Grant in collaboration with Teton County Community Pathways, Jackson Hole Mountain Resort, JH Nordic Alliance, JH Friends of Pathways and Teton Valley Trails and Pathways.
