Our Capital Campaign is in full swing. 

We just wanted to take a moment to thank everyone that has donated to the Jackson Ski Touring Capital Campaign thus far!  Because of your generous contributions we have already raised 85% of our $600,000 goal! 

However, as successful as we've been so far, we can't stop now.  We still need your help.  Every little bit counts and your money will be going to support improving our existing trail system, building new  trail connection points and establishing a fund to support equipment.

Don't foreget to tell your friends!

If you would like to make a contribution or further information contact Vice President Sam Harding spharding42@gmail.com

It’s Friday!  The weekend is just about here, and what a fun one it will be.  We have been busy getting ready for the White Mountain Classic 30K race being held tomorrow.  Have no fear, there is still plenty of terrain available for recreational skiing.  It is also a fun spectator event.  We literally close down the roads here in Jackson, so that participants can ski right through the village.  The Ellis River Trail, South Hall, East Pasture & Prospect Farm will NOT be affected by the event. Come check it out and have a great time skiing yourself.

Fischer/Tubbs and Swix will be on site Saturday 1/24 for a demo day from 10:00-3:00.  It’s a great opportunity to test drive some new gear.  No obligation to buy and it’s free.  Having the opportunity to try boots or skis first, goes a long way to ensuring that you like the gear.  Swix will also be hosting a FREE waxing clinic (Waxing 101) at 12:00 on Saturday.  Come learn how to wax from the best.  Proper wax on your skis will greatly enhance your skiing experience, especially on those so called “waxless” skis. 

The Cocoa Café on the Ellis River Trail will be open this weekend from 10:00-3:00.  We’ll have the fire going, be sure to stop by grab a snack from our local bakeries and roast some s’mores, enjoy a cup of hot cocoa or just relax and take in the scenery. 

We have guided Snowshoe tours with a naturalist heading out on the trails at 10:00 am & 1:00pm both Saturday and Sunday.  These tours are just $10 per person and you’ll be out for 2 hours. You’ll learn some interesting facts about the forest and have some laughs along the way with Peter and Rob our guides.

Our amazing ski school staff is also standing by.  We offer a Super Saver package every day of the season. It’s only $45 for an all-day trail pass, your rental equipment, and 1 hour lesson.  What a great deal! Group and Private Lessons are offered throughout the day, no reservation needed.  Let us give you some tips on how to get up those hills efficiently and how to navigate your way down the hills.

On Sunday you can ski with a friend of Jackson Ski Touring.  Meet Ray by the fireplace inside the touring center at 10:00am, on Sunday the 25th.  You will need a trail pass for the day of course, but the tour is FREE. It is a great way to venture out on a trail that you may have never skied before, and it’s an opportunity to make a new ski friend. 

The weather looks good, there is even a chance for some light snowfall on Saturday.  We have fantastic mid-winter conditions! Just check out our photo of the day, or better yet, come ski it to believe it!

If you would like to receive our daily conditions report directly to your inbox every morning, we would be happy to add you to the list.  Send your request and email address to info@Jacksonxc.org. It’s the best way to stay the most up to date on conditions.

I’ll see you out on the trails!
