If you’re in search of a laid-back ski vacation with virtually guaranteed powder, then Grand Targhee should be top-of-mind. Grand Targhee is located in the heart of the Teton Mountains, and experiences a whopping 500 inches of legendary powder a year. Grand Targhee consistently ranks as one of North America’s top resorts for powder hounds; in fact SKI magazine once called it “A place that dumps.” 

Grand Targhee sits on the border of Wyoming and Idaho, on the western side of the Tetons—opposite from Jackson Hole. Targhee is situated in an ideal powder vortex, and traps the Pacific snow traveling east. This hidden gem rarely sees crowds or extensive lift lines, and its close proximity to Jackson Hole, Sun Valley, Big Sky and Salt Lake City, make it a great stop for a road trip. 

The resort is just 12 miles from Driggs, Idaho, and a quick 90 minutes from Jackson Hole airport and Idaho Falls airport, making it an incredibly accessible ski vacation. Those on a budget looking for uncompromised on- and off-mountain quality will be pleasantly surprised on a Grand Targhee ski vacation. While the resort still retains its cool, blasé vibe, Grand Targhee has experienced some recent upgrades, including a new access road and new detachable quad chairlift, which accesses an additional 500 skiable acres on Peak Mountain, and brings Targhee’s total to 2,602 acres.

Ski Grand Targhee

Grand Targhee skiing is spread over two mountains: Fred’s Mountain and Peaked Mountain. The terrain features everything - powder bowls and well-spaced, intermediate glades to tight, technical trees. Intermediates will be pleased to learn that 70 percent of Grand Targhee’s terrain is meant for them. There’s nothing like Grand Targhee’s fresh corduroy after an overnight snowstorm. More advanced intermediates or those looking to try powder skiing will love Grand Targhee.  Since crowds are minimal, it’s easy to find fresh tracks and none of the runs are too steep. Expert and extreme skiers and snowboarders looking for adventure will rejoice in Grand Targhee’s cat skiing, sidecountry and backcountry skiing options.

Where God goes to ski powder!

Jason Ekaireb

Family ski trip

Perfect mountain for getting my 11 year old to fall in love with powder skiing.. Had knee high to thigh high powder all 3 days.. Although it is 70% intermediate, there is plenty of pitch and trees .. The only downside is stays so foggy you don't get to see how beautiful the mountain and views are.. Also we stayed at the mountain lodge which was comfortable but not a lot of choices for dinners. But all in all a great relaxing family place

Come on! 500 inches of powder a year with amazing views of the Tetons? That's right, and I often tell folks skiing in Jackson Hole to spend a night or two staying and skiing at the Grand Targhee ski resort. Located on the west side of the Grand Tetons and just 42 miles from Jackson, it's worth the trip over. Grand Targhee is in the top four resorts in North America for the amount of snow they receive annually. It is well worth the trip over to check it out. Activities are not limited to skiing either. They have snowshoeing, catskiing adventures, sleigh ride dinners and dog sled tours as well Call or email me today for more details on skiing at Grand Targhee!
