Just a great getaway altogether. Very restful atmosphere, but activities if you want to partake. The only thing that was a challenge is that the way the rooms are designed, you are very exposed to other guests walking past your room window.

The G.T. is a great resort if you are into sports. Unfortunately, my hubby and I aren't. We stayed there because we wanted to be close to the Grand Tetons. Don't get me wrong, the place is beautiful and our room had a gorgeous view. If we went during the winter and liked to ski, we probably would have enjoyed... More

The resort has a naturalist on staff. She has a hut at the top of the chair lift. It is full of books and displays. There are programs too all to help people learn about the plants and animals in the area. Apparently this position was required by the forest service as part of the resort's permit. I hiked with...

We ended up here after going to Idaho for a hot air balloon trip and I'm glad we did. Not nearly as crowded as places nearer to Jackson Hole. We took the ski lift to the top and hiked the three mile trail to the bottom. Beautiful hike.

Grand Targhee Ski Resort is a wonderful mid-sized ski resort. There are no large towns nearby so it is rare that the lift lines are more than 5 minutes long. The whole of the resort boasts of wonderful powder and they receive over 40 feet (500 inches) annually, much of it coming in overnight storms. Many visitors come to Grand... More

This review is of the chair lift up the mountain. I love high country and mountain scenic views. But at my age and shape arduous climbing is beyond me. The Grand Teton Mountains of northwest Wyoming and southwest Idaho offer some of the most spectacular views in North America. Our accommodation was in Victor, Idaho, near Jackson Hole, at the...

We visited during the summer and are pleased we did! This is a beautiful, peaceful place. There are lots of mountain bikers (not us), and a great chair lift that takes you to the back part of the Tetons. Beautiful! You can hike, you can stroll, you can admire the wildflowers, and you can enjoy some coffee and food when... More

So we don't downhill ski - and we don't mountain bike. With that disclosure, this place was much smaller than I expected. Just a couple restaurants and a couple shops with a parking lot and some lifts! However, it seemed like a lot of downhill options and the bikers coming off the hill looked like they were pretty serious and... More

This was a summer trip to view wildflowers. We bought lift tickets and rode up the lift to spectacular views and wildflowers galore! Saw a little wildlife, too. Some of our party hiked down to the base, the rest of us rode down the chair lift. Only downside - we didn't find out there is a safety bar that can... More
