Grand Targhee is definitely a sweet spot to ski. Great terrain and no lines. It is fair to say that Targhee Lodge is far from luxurious. It is literally a motel-style lodge at the base of the hill that was probably built 30 years and not much has changed since then. Having said that, we knew this was the situation... More

After hearing from friends what a great place to ski, we decided to visit and stay at the Grand Targhee Resort. Although the skiing was incredible: no lines at the lifts, deep powder, lots of area to ski, friendly staff, the accommodations leave a lot to be desired. Staying at the lodge is extremely loud and the Targhee Lodge itself... More

My wife and I spent 6 full days on-site at Grand Targhee in early March, 2014. The weather and snow were great, the amenities very nice, clean and affordable, and the people were very friendly and accommodating. We plan on hopefully going back next winter!

We stayed at Grand Targhee on their 4 night ski & stay package in January 2014. We stayed in the the newer lodge, the Teewinot ($185 per night, $50 bucks more per day, but worth it), Rooms were up to date, clean and a decent size. No crowds, beginner hill is great for the kids, blues were true blues, and... More

We have a season pass so we ski here throughout the winter. Skiing is great with new powder frequently adding to their base. They have three quad chairlifts (one for a beginners hill), one double and a magic carpet. Lifts open from 9 am to 4 pm and you need to get here early for decent parking. They have two... More

We traveled to Grand Targhee from Teton Village for 2 days out of our 4-day trip to Jackson Hole. Let me tell you, it was worth the 1-hour bus ride. The terrain isn't nearly as gnarly as Jackson, but there is a much friendlier atmosphere, more local feel, less crowds, and at the time when we were there, higher snow... More

Spent a night at this location the Targhee Lodge. First for my wife and I, and we were exhausted from a 10 inch fresh powder day of skiing while waiting for our room. There are several lodges here and I stayed at the less expensive one. I will admit for the price ($185) it was a little less than expected.... More

As part of the Cheyenne Ski Club we booked a 3 day stay at Grand Targhee on 1/12/13 through the marketing department. We all stayed at the Souix Lodge which is just behind the base lodge of the ski area with adjacent access to a heated outdoor pool and spa facility. Great place to stay if your seeking first tracks... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel):
Grand Targhee Resort is a year round mountain resort situated on the western slope of the Tetons in Alta, Wyoming, accessible only through Teton Valley, Idaho. Located in the Caribou-Targhee National Forest, the abundance of light powder snow (more than 500 inches annually) and lack of lift lines creates a great mountain experience with plenty of elbow room. The Resort is continually recognized for its great snow, genuine western hospitality, scenic beauty, excellent value and commitment to sustainability.During the winter, Grand Targhee is your Powder Paradise in the Heart of the Tetons averaging over 500 inches of champagne powder a year and the wide open slopes will provide endless opportunities for exploration! There are two mountains for you to explore with over 2,000 acres of lift served terrain, over 2,270 vertical feet, and an additional 600 acres of terrain reserved exclusively for Snowcat Adventures. Make sure to check out their other snow activities including dinner and a sleigh ride, 15K of Nordic skiing, fat “snow” bikes, daily snowshoe tours with the Resort Naturalist and a full line-up of après music at the Trap. The mountain is about an hour drive from Jackson Hole, WY, an hour and a half from Idaho Falls, ID, and only a short 5 hour drive from Salt Lake City, UT.During the summer you’ll find a wide variety of activities to keep the whole family content.
