Our car looked like a white loaf of bread when it was finally time to leave. My husband and I stayed in the Sioux Lodge and appreciated the spacious rooms, microwave, and frig. If we would have had kids though, it might have felt crowded. We did have a locking closet on the balcony, for skis and snowshoes, much appreciated. We ate two meals at the Branding Iron restaurant, very good, and the fancy s'mores were fun. We are cross country skiers and appreciated access to the trails without getting in our car. However, there is one main trail, one mile long, to reach some of the rest of the ski area. It is a black trail, with hills and curves, so if you are a beginner, it could be a challenge. Also, if limited in time, say you just want to ski an hour, then a chunk of that time is just getting to the other trails. Overall, enjoyable visit.

- 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.
