Mountain Sports School

Finding Your Feet

At the Grand Targhee Mountain Sports School, we’ve got one goal: To help you, your family, and your friends take your skiing or riding to the next level in a safe, encouraging environment. And to have a bunch of fun along the way, too.

Our professional instructors will share the magic of playing in the world-famous Teton powder that falls here, no matter if you’re a seasoned veteran of the sport or trying it for the very first time. Kids? You bet. Adults? Absolutely. We’re lucky to have a team of passionate instructors, many of whom have skied the Ghee for years, to help you build your confidence on the slopes. 

Booking a lesson with a professional instructor is the best way to learn proper technique, adopt good habits, and reach your mountain goals faster. And it’s a whole lot more enjoyable for everyone involved than trying to learn from a friend or a family member. Trust us on that.

Kids Club

Child Care

If you’ve got little ones who aren’t quite ready to head out on the mountain, we’ve got child care options available for you. Our licensed child care center is available to children from 6 months to 5 years old. They’ll be well looked after in a safe environment where they can have a grand ol’ time of their own while you head out to link some turns together.
