3 Creek Ranch Nordic Update & Schedule

January 23 - January 29, 2017


3 Creek Ranch

3 Creek Ranch Nordic Schedule
January 23 – January 29, 2017

- Monday, January 23
Ski Tour: Ditch Creek, behind Teton Science School
Time: 9:00 AM – 3:00 PM.
Location: Meet at the Nordic Center at 9:00 AM
Mileage: 4.5 miles
Elevation gain: 390’   Maxi Elevation: 7,172’

We will begin at the Teton Science School, and ski east along the open meadows and banks of Ditch Creek for the first mile. We’ll then loop back around these meadows, ski the gradual hill to the upper hay meadows below Coyote Rock, then follow the old two track ranch road south the remaining 2 miles and finish up at the Kelly Warm Springs. We will leave a shuttle vehicle at the Warm Springs for our return to the Science School. This gentle tour is mostly flat, with a short uphill and an enjoyable downhill over the last 2 miles..and has remote, ‘off the beaten path’ feel, with wide open meadows and surrounding mountain views. We will probably be breaking our own trail for most of the day. Facilities at the Science School and Warm Springs.

We will need to leave a shuttle vehicle at the Warm Springs.

Notes on what to bring: Recommended gear for all our Ski Tours: a small daypack, insulated water bottles, (a small thermos of hot tea or cocoa is always a pleasure to have), lunch/snacks. Clothing: although all of us warm up and cool down in a unique manner…we strongly recommend wearing any combination of light-to-mid weight layers such as smartwool or capilene, and maybe a thin down vest (anything non-cotton!) that can be removed or added based on weather conditions and level of exertion; a lightweight outer shell jacket, extra warm layer such as a light weight down puffy jacket for a lunch stop; and consider having both a light-weight and heavier-weight hat and gloves. As always, contact me if I can help you with these types of Nordic clothing.
Length and destination of the tour is weather dependent.
