OUR SNOW IS ANYTHING BUT “AVERAGE!”
- A standard in the ski and snowboard industry is to list the amount of snowfall received during a winter season as “average annual snowfall.” Well, ours is anything but average. With Grand Targhee's abundant snowfall, 500 inches plus (that’s over 43 feet) each season, it’s no wonder that year after year national ski magazines rate Grand Targhee in the top three resorts in North America for snow quality and quantity. Not only do we get more natural snow that most resorts, our snow is drier (less than 5% water content) and thus lighter.
IT’S GUARANTEED - We are so confident that you’ll be satisfied with our snow conditions at Grand Targhee, from November through April, we guarantee it. If for some reason you’re not, simply return your lift ticket to the Ticket Office within one hour of the time of purchase and you will receive a “Snow Check” good for another lift ticket on any day during the current season. No questions, no hassles, it’s that easy. There’s a reason we’re blessed with so much of Mother Nature’s finest. According to Meteorologist Jim Woodmencey, who has lived in Jackson, Wyoming since 1982, storms impale themselves on the Tetons, spinning around Mt. Moran, Mt. Owen and the Grand’s 13,700 foot summit and spill copious amounts of moisture on Targhee. Waking up to a foot of fresh powder is the norm here and many of you will remember that amazing day in February, a couple of years ago when 42” fell overnight. Wow!
IT’S NEVER BEEN EASIER TO SKI POWDER
- as more and more people discover the pure joy of powder skiing while riding on new snowboards and powder skis designed for deep snow, powder reserves are becoming more popular and we certainly have our share of those. Another plus - Grand Targhee still boasts one of the lowest ratios of skiers to off-trail powder acres in the country. If there’s not enough of the fluffy stuff for you on Fred’s Mountain, schedule a Snowcat Adventure trip to Peaked Mountain. Our snowcats pamper you with 1,000 acres and 2,400 vertical feet of unsurpassed scenery and snow conditions.
