I was on a guy's ski trip in college when my old Jeep broke down in the Grand Targhee parking lot after a long powder day on the hill. Somehow we managed to get up and out of the lot, then coasted down towards Driggs where we were staying. Fortunately, we lost the battle with momentum at the Teton Teepee Lodge. We ducked inside to get out of the blizzard, and to call a tow truck. While we waited for the tow to come over from Jackson (and with the closed pass it took 5-6 hours), the staff and guests at the Teepee made us feel right at home. We cozied up next to the fire, the lodge manager brought us beer, and the guests in the lodge even invited us to dine with them! This place will always have a special place in my heart for the hospitality, great atmosphere, cool guests, and the huge warm fireplace in the middle! Thank you for a wonderful experience!
