We stayed a weekend this summer at the Grand Targhee Resort and were amazed at variety of outdoor activities that were available. The Activity Center informed us of how we could buy tickets to ride the main ski lift to the top of the mountain and then either bike, hike, or ride the lift back down. We choose to hike... More

Enjoyed several hikes at Grand Targhee. We hiked Rick's Basin which had beautiful views of the mountains and wildflowers. Another day we took the chair lift up to the top and hiked down the Bannock trail. A beautiful, breathtaking view at the top and on the hike down. A great place to visit during the summer!

After several days of driving to various National Parks we decided to stay close to home our last day in Driggs Idaho. We were very excited to find a bunch of family friendly activities a short drive away at the Grand Targhee Resort. We spent the morning riding the lift and hiking the trails at the top of the mountain.... More

We actually stayed in Victor, ID but in a quest for things to do, heard we could ride the chairlift at Grand Targhee for scenic views and hiking. The tickets were $15 per adult (our hotel had told us they'd be $5 apiece), so we were a little taken aback. We had our three year old daughter with us, and... More

Stayed at the resort for 4 days in June. Obviously not there for the skiing, but took advantage of a hike after a chairlift ride to the top! It was beautiful! There is a little display at the top to show what you are looking at. The rooms were beautiful in Teewinot Lodge, and the conference room was beautiful as... More

The Mountain was beautiful and had great runs for having a fun days ride. Most of the snow was fabricated, and little powder was to be found. However, the resort served well for carving some lines and having a good time.

If you enjoy making your own run and lots of powder, Grand Targhee is for you. The mountain is basically wide open, and very little is off limits or out of bounds. It is entirely possible to ski all day and never ski the same tracks. In addition to the massive amount of powder and expansive terrain, the views are... More

This is our first visit to Grand Targhee and we will definitely be returning. We've skied Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday so far this week and will be back to finish out the week tomorrow, Friday and possibly Saturday morning. The snow is excellent in the morning - they had fresh snow just a couple of days before the start of... More

Grand Targhee is a skier's mountain--not a lot of frills, lots of ungroomed areas to ski (a positive in my opinion!), and generally uncrowded. When I was there, visibility was close to zero for two days--but the snow was fantastic. Once it cleared up a bit and we could see the mountain, there were lots of untracked areas that simply...
