Targhee's Own Olympian

Raised in Alta, Wyoming our Jaelin Kauf grew up on the slopes here at Grand Targhee. Our local Olympian learned to ski on Shoshone with runs like The Eyeball Forest, Bobsled, and The Bat Cave. It wasn’t long before she was racing down screaming cheetah and skiing the ever so rare bump line in the Good and The Bad. Growing up on a steady diet of Targhee powder days, cat skiing on Peaked Mountain, and group shreds with TVSEF it’s easy to see why she fell in love with the sport of skiing. That love led her to pursue a career in the world of mogul skiing. She made the U.S Ski Team in 2016 and has racked up quite the list of accomplishments since then.
