Grand Targhee Cat Skiing

Cat Skiing & Boarding

Grand Targhee Resort is home to over 500″ of annual snowfall and Wyoming’s only cat skiing operation. Grand Targhee Cat Skiing is a powder experience of a lifetime, with breathtaking views of the Tetons and 602 dedicated acres of untracked light, dry Teton powder in our vast terrain only accessible to Cat Skiing. You and eleven other skiers and boarders will experience up to 18,000 vertical feet in just one day while you cruise through open bowls, endless glades, and steep tree pitches. Grand Targhee Cat Skiing is only for intermediate to advanced skiers and riders with off-piste experience.

The Grand Targhee Resort team can provide a full day of Cat Skiing for up to 24 people with two private snowcats on over 600 acres of your own snowcat terrain. You will have a mountain to yourself for the day. Please call Central Reservations 800.TARGHEE (827.4433) ext. 1 to book your private Cat Skiing experience today!

Grand Targhee Cat Skiing Cancellation Policy

Due to rapidly changing mountain weather, we are often evaluating terrain and snow conditions leading up to the final hours before your trip. We make every effort to get you out on your scheduled day so long as conditions are safe.

In the unfortunate circumstance that your trip is cancelled, you are provided two options:

  1. You will be provided the option of a full refund less $25 per seat.
  2. You have the option of rescheduling for another date before the end of the season

If you choose to cancel your trip, you must cancel outside 48 hours of trip date for rescheduling or refund eligibility.  Cancellations made within 48 hours of trip date are a full forfeit of trip cost*

*Please keep in mind, we reserved your seat for you, and in doing so prevented other individuals and groups from booking

*You may transfer your seat to another individual if done at least 48 hours in advance; please inform GTR of the change


  • Please be aware, there are no refunds for lodging if your cat is cancelled. The Resort is open for skiing and riding 7 days a week during the winter season. If you cancel your lodging reservation, you will be subject to Grand Targhee Resort’s Lodging Cancellation Policy.

Lodging cancellation policy:  We require a deposit at booking of one night’s stay plus tax. Payment in full is due 30 days prior to arrival.
