Extreme Cold and Grooming Operations

For the safety of our staff and grooming equipment the winter trail grooming has been suspended for the last two days due to extreme cold.  Our property's standard states that grooming operations will be not run for the day if the air temperature does not reach 5 degrees Fahrenheit by noon of the given day.

This is a "ski at your own risk" amenity.  Therefore, if you are a hardy skier, the track will remain open during these situations. However, we remind you to take all proper cold weather precautions. 

With warmer temperatures forecasted, we hope to resume normal grooming operations tomorrow.

Stay safe!

Classic Track

After this last round of snow, we now have a suitable depth for grooming the classic cross country ski track! 

This track will be groomed on the side of the trail closest to the marking stakes.  Please note that the classic track is only being set where the terrain allows.

As always please be safe, stay on the groomed trails, and respect the wildlife.

Enjoy the trails!

Winter Trails Now Open

The winter trails are now officially open for the season.  Just like last year, we will aim to groom the trails three times per week (more often during snow cycles).  Currently, the snow depth is too shallow to groom the classic track.  It will be another snow cycle or two, but we will begin grooming the classic ski track as soon as the snow pack allows.

In addition, please remember, winter access to the golf course is confined ONLY to the trail system.  We have already seen skier tracks off trail and over putting greens.  This will cause extra and unnecessary damage to the golf course and may cause unnecessary hardship to overwintering wildlife.

Please observe club rules and respect the wildlife when utilizing the winter trails.

Enjoy the skiing!

Golf Course Closed & Irrigation Winterization

Though the golf course is now closed, our season is not over yet.  After removing all of the course accessories, the first project on the checklist is our irrigation winterization.

We will be winterizing the irrigation system this Thursday through Saturday, October 18th - 20th.

If you own a home on the golf course, we remind you that the maintenance team is not responsible for the winterization, maintenance, or repair of your home's irrigation system.  However, if you would like to use the air pressure to winterize your system during these dates you may do so free of charge.

If you have any questions please call the JHGTC Maintenance Office at 307-733-7802.

The pro shop will work to shotgun start anyone looking to play during the nicest time of the day off the front 9 at noon.

Enjoy the golf in the valley while you can!

Thank you.

Fall Frost Delays

The overnight low was 24 degrees Fahrenheit at the golf course.  With the first heavy frost of the fall, we will need to delay tee times until at least 10:30 am this morning. 

These delays will likely be a regular occurrence for the rest of the season.  Keep an eye on this blog or call the pro shop at 733-3111 ext. 1 for the most up to date frost information.

Thank you.
