One of the best places I've been. I went there and in two days 42 inches of powder fell and it was rad! The wind took its toll on the snow later on but really a sweet resort.

Great people, great snow and the base was pretty great to. Love it!

Great, laid back field

Targhee can be a mighty field when it snows- but it didn't when we there. Off trail was tracked out and hard snow, so we stuck to the trails. Which were fine - but don't expect a lot of variety. Lots of interesting other stuff to do - snow shoeing, snow bikes, Yellowstone not far away.

Targhee is worth the trip over Teton pass if you're spending some time in Jackson. There are hardly ever lift lines even on deep days so if you're looking for all day laps this is the place. Great sidecountry access as well. Ticket prices are reasonable. Check out the knotty pine down the road for their show line ups for apres or just a solid meal.

Great Experience!!

Great Experience!!

This truly is a gem in the midst of the Grand Tetons...

The first time we went out there was 2001 and again twice since. After being to Steamboat, driving up to the base area at the "ghee" was kind of like leaving the city for the country! I was in line at the lift 10 minutes before it opened, maybe 7 or 8 people in front of me! That was the day my heart went to the mountains, awesome views and some decent snow to boot. I only knew one person at the time back home in Minnesota who had ever heard of the joint!

To be truthful our mission was Jackson Hole, but a local told us if you want powder go to Targhee forget about the village. Thus, Grand Targhee has stolen my heart since that awesome day January 01'..........

Grand Targhee nestled on the western side of the Grand Tetons is a fantastic ski experience. Having skied here on several ski holidays I have always had fresh powder snow to rip up. The resort itself has beautiful tree glades and amazing powder bowls to immerse yourself in. In February 2010 I got 2 days of knee to waist deep powder.

Crowds are minimal even on a Saturday! It is generally ski straight onto the chair all day.

Nightlife is pretty quiet but if you are there to ski, a beer and jacuzzi is about all you might handle.

I stayed in Driggs at Motel 8 and did the drive up the hill and found it to be pretty easy.

Grand Targhee has been rated by us as one of six ski resorts that scores full marks as a Powderhounds ski destination (that takes into account the factors of quality and quantity of powder, a lack of crowds, and quality advanced and expert terrain). The Powderhounds are obviously impressed with Grand Targhee in Wyoming!

Pros: the abundant snow is from “heaven (not from hoses)”; uncrowded slopes so there are plenty of opportunities for freshies; variety of alpine and treed terrain; fantastic for intermediates and powderhounds on the L plates; family friendly; convenient ski in ski out lodgings; and very affordable.

Cons: minimal white knuckle terrain relative to Jackson Hole; and a relatively dull nightlife. And if all that powder in-bounds isn’t enough for you, there’s also good backcountry access and cat skiing adjacent to the resort.
