Visited Grand Targhee twice during recent vacation. This is the quiet side of the Grand Tetons - all the beauty with many fewer people. Staff was very helpful directing us to good hiking trails. One day we took the lift to the top and walked down through magnificent fields of wild flowers. The views of the Grand Tetons from the... More

Picked up $5 coupon (off $15 ski lift ticket) at Teton Geotourism Center in downtown Driggs. It is about half hour scenic drive to Grand Targhee Ski Resort. From the activity center, take the ski lift to a mountain top near 10K feet elevation. A short trail past nature center to have panoramic view of Grand Teton peaks. We took... More

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.
