Getting To Grand Targhee

Where is Grand Targhee Ski Resort? Grand Targhee ski resort is on the western side of the Grand Teton mountain range, just (literally) on the Wyoming side of the border with Idaho. The nearest town is Driggs, 15 minutes drive to the west, and the closest gateway cities are Idaho Falls in Idaho (90 minutes drive to the west) and Jackson in Wyoming (an hour’s drive to the east).

Other ski resorts nearby Grand Targhee is amazingly situated in the middle of the best USA ski resorts. All are from one hour to a day’s drive away. Jackson Hole and Snow King are an hour away on the other side of the range over Teton Pass (great backcountry!). They are a must-do add on to Targhee.

Getting To Grand TargheeRental cars are available at both Jackson and Idaho Falls airports, however reservations are definitely recommended.

If you’re staying in Jackson or Teton Village (at Jackson Hole ski resort) and only visiting Grand Targhee for the day (shame on you!), the Targhee Express bus is the way to do it. The buses pick up from various locations in Jackson (from 7am) and Teton Village (from 7.30am). After flogging yourself in powder for a day, the buses depart Grand Targhee at 4.15pm, dropping you home for dinner. Cost for transport and lift ticket is under US$90. Reservations are required by 9pm the day before travel.

If driving from Utah, the road journey is easy and straightforward. From Colorado, depending which way one goes, road conditions can be challenging if the weather is poor. 4WD vehicles are recommended for all major road travel in this area.

Getting Around The preferred mode of transport for getting around the resort is foot, snowshoe, ski or horse drawn sleigh. Grand Targhee’s base area is tiny so no in-resort shuttles are required.
