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

Awesome place to visit in the summer. They are open and have great activities available. We took the lift up and picniked, then hiked down.

We went to Grand Targhee in early July hoping to find a decent place for a couple of days hiking in the high mountains of western Wyoming. We found so much more than that. The resort has an extensive network of hiking trails, well-maintained and covering a variety of different terrains and skill levels, as well as chairlift rides to... More

Ride up on a ski lift for $15. Once off there is a trail on the ridge line that showcases the Tetons in al their glory. Then take the Bannock trail down. Takes about 1.5 hours to walk. Trail is a bit rough, yet no problem if you take it slow. Wild flowers in mid July were in full bloom.... More

This was our first trip out west to ski...IT WAS AMAZING! Views were beautiful, people were friendly, lines were small and we were there on a holiday weekend. Was way worth it!!! Lots of fresh snow and fun!

Want something a bit more laid back? With some lifts from the 60s? It is smaller, with less vertical, and not as steep as Jackson, but that adds to the charm. Leave the crowds behind and explore this gem. If I was a local I would make Targhee my resort of choice.

Grand Targhee usually has better snow and more of it than other ski areas in the vicinity. The way the mountain is laid out, it is easy to ride the lifts to the top and everyone can make their own way down on separate runs, then meet at the bottom to ride the chair together again. There is plenty of... More

Just got back from 4 days at Grand Targhee. On the upside the conditions were good and the staff and people we met were lovely. Great resort for BLUE skiers but after 4 hours of of skiing blue we were bored. If you are a middle of the road skier and like to ski the same fall line over and... More
