Thanksgiving, The Targhee Way



With Thanksgiving quickly approaching; we look forward to another joyous holiday celebrated with family and friends, indulging in food, spirits, and merriment. Rather than rush out the door before the leftovers cool, this year we encourage you to try something different and sample Thanksgiving “The Targhee Way”. Just follow these four simple steps and you’ll have it down.

Step One: Build Up an Appetite

We all know a big appetite is essential for properly enjoying Thanksgiving. Step one is simple…Ski all day at the Ghee! Every turn burns calories, every calorie burned ensures you’ll be able to tackle that last slice of pumpkin pie.

Step Two: A Hands Free Dinner

Once your appetite has shifted into sixth-gear, satisfy it at The Branding Iron’s Prix Fixe Thanksgiving Dinner. Dinner will be served from  2:00PM to 8:00PM, so you’ll be able to hit the last chair or loosen the boots and call it early. Enjoy a three course Thanksgiving Dinner, without the prep or dishes, all without having to leave the mountain. The Thanksgiving Dinner is a local favorite, reservations are encouraged!

Step Three: Football & Spirits

Venture out for a night cap and conversation with old and new friends at The Trap. Watch your favorite team and sample brews from the Thursday night “Trap Tap Takeover”, with great beer specials featuring local breweries.

Step Four: Ski & Ride Your Heart Out, While Still Scoring Killer Deals on Gifts.

Grand Targhee Resort is home to two great gear shops: Teton Mountain Outfitters and The Board Shop! This holiday, shop smart and you’ll save while still getting in a long day of shredding.

Teton Mountain Outfitters is offering 30-60% off last years skis, boots, insulation and outerwear. They also have sales on select 2018 gear!


The Board Shop is offering 30-60% off last years retail and demo boards, boots, bindings, outerwear, goggles and helmets.

In The Valley, Habitat will be open until 8:00PM on Friday, offering 15% off storewide, and a free wax with any purchase over 20 bucks!

These sales are being offered during the entire week, and the shops are open 8:30am to 5:00pm, making your winter sports holiday shopping a no-brainer.

With all the time you’ll save by shopping and dining at the mountain, spend it where it counts… sharing the holiday with friends and family making memories and reconnecting with nature.
