Grand Targhee Resort to Open Wednesday, November 27, 2019

(Alta, WY – November 25, 2019) Grand Targhee Resort is scheduled to open on Wednesday, November 27, 2019. Warmer temperatures and dry conditions prevented the planned opening on November 22, 2019. However, the last few days have brought snow and favorable snowmaking temperatures to the area and has allowed the resort to open Shoshone and Papoose with access to the Big Horn trail. Lift tickets will be $10 until more terrain becomes available to skiers and snowboarders. All eyes are on the forecast this week, with the possibility of more snowfall.

Resort lodging accommodations, the Trap Bar, the General Store, Snorkels Café, the Branding Iron, Wild Bills, Teton Mountain Outfitters, The Board Shop, the Rental Shop, Ski & Snowboard School, and Kids Club will also open beginning Wednesday, November 27, 2019.
