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

GT is one of the best ski resorts in the intermountain west. If you are looking for great snow, lots of terrain, and small lift lines this is the place. The mountain is awesome. There are lots of groomers but the best skiing is everywhere else. I just wish my legs were stronger.

Came here from Jackson on March 20th. Great spring skiing, hanging outside with a beer on a beautiful sunny day. Nice folks all around.

Our ski group from Toronto was staying in Jackson, and a day trip was arranged though Targhee Express. We had outstanding service through the whole day. The bus was on time, comfortable... And Jessie, the bus driver and tour guide extraordinaire was entertaining, knowledgeable, always willing to accommodate our members. Unfortunately, one of our skiers was injured and Jessie was...

We had a GREAT ski experience for our first visit to Grand Targhee Ski Resort!!! Some friends also opted to join us after leaving a Utah resort, and THEY loved it as well. We all extended our stay to ski in fresh snow another day or two. The resort staff were more than accommodating from reservations weeks before (we got... More

Our Fountain Valley Ski Club enjoyed a snow day at Grand Targhee courtesy of Targhee Express deal ($99 lift ticket and bus ride) from Jackson. The snow was amazing and the terrain varied but we totally made out with the personal guide treatment of our bus driver Jesse! He toured a group of us (12 people) all over the mountain... More

Targhee is an outstanding area - no surprise to anybody who skis. If you are staying in Jackson and skiing Jackson Hole take a day over at Targhee. We used and strongly recommend the Targhee Express. You get a round trip bus ride, which picks up at various stops around town, a lift ticket and if you are lucky enough... More
