Your End of Season Targhee Bucket List
What a season it has been! With 449″ and counting, the good times at Targhee live on. As we wind down and begin to put an end to the 2017/18 season, the days grow longer and the temperatures warmer. With that, events like Sick Trick and DJ Cut La What remind us why spring ski days at the Ghee are so great. Below I’ve compiled an end of season ‘Bucket List’ of sorts for those not ready to call it quits quite yet because the season isn’t over; we’ve received 11 inches in the last 48 hours, and there’s plenty of fun to be had!
Spring brings warmer temperatures and some beautiful bluebird days, making for a great hike up Mary’s. Grab a friend and head up Dreamcatcher, then traverse over to the base of Mary’s. Unzip that jacket and make the quick hike up. You’ll be in for a treat, with amazing views looking over both The Valley and The Tetons, as well as untracked snow. Just remember to stay safe and be considerate of your surroundings!
Go Cat Skiing
You’d think by April the Cat Skiers would have called it quits. But, they’re still at it. For locals, now is a great time to head out for a day of freshies on Peaked’s trails that are only accessible through this operation. Space is available over the next few days, so no major planning is needed. Drop what you’re doing and take advantage of this latest storm cycle before the adventuring comes to an end for the season!
Attend Spring Sessions Events
We have three major events left here at the Ghee. This Saturday many will head up the hill with their Cardboard Box sleds in tow ready to race down Big Horn. Come cheer the contestants on, enjoy some tunes and check out the creativity.
Next weekend the Pond Skim will be taking place. Make sure to dress in your favorite Spring Skiing garb whether you’re planning on getting wet or not. But, what doesn’t sound awesome about clipping into your skis while wearing a tutu in an effort to see how far you can skim over that pool of water?
Lastly, the Teton Adaptive FUNdraiser and Race will be taking place on Palmer’s Raceway. Call on your fastest skier and rider companions and create a team of 5 or less people. The best part is you’ll be supporting Teton Adaptive Sports while also having a great time! Raffle tickets are also on sale, and there are plenty of prizes to be won. You can purchase tickets at Ski School and will have a chance to win a pair of skis or snowboard, gear, gift cards for local businesses and much more!
Enjoy Tunes at the Trap
Pop into the Trap Bar and Grill to loosen those boots and listen to some great music. All music plays from 3-6pm, and you can find a list of bands and their schedule here. Monday-Thursday après specials are always worth checking out too!
Avalanche Dog Demo Day at the Top of Sacajawea
Ever wonder what the roles are of the K9s you see around the resort? Every Sunday at 1:00pm patrol offers an avalanche dog demonstration. Head up to the top of Sacajawea to the Ski Patrol shack and see what those pups are capable of.
The Branding Iron Prime Rib Dinner
Finish off that Sunday ski session with some tasty provisions because there’s nothing better than a good meal after a day full of turns. The Prime Rib Dinner at the Branding Iron is one you don’t want to miss. Feel free to call ahead to ensure your spot is saved. Dinner begins at 5:30pm and goes until 8:30pm!
Emily joined Grand Targhee’s team after making the decision to move across the country in search of a place where she’d be able to fuse her passion, work, and love for the mountains into one. She’s decided, life at Targhee definitely beats the rat race she came from.
