The Mountain

Grand Targhee Resort is a year round mountain resort situated on the western slope of the Tetons in Alta, Wyoming. Located in the Caribou-Targhee National Forest, our abundance of light powder snow (more than 500 inches annually) and lack of lift lines creates an uncrowded (wide open) skier and snowboarder paradise. We are continually recognized for our great snow, genuine western hospitality, scenic beauty, excellent value and commitment to sustainability.

OUR SNOW IS ANYTHING BUT “AVERAGE!” –  A standard in the ski and snowboard industry is to list the amount of snowfall received during a winter season as “average annual snowfall.” Well, ours is anything but average. With Grand Targhee’s abundant snowfall, 500 inches plus (that’s over 43 feet) each season, it’s no wonder that year after year national ski magazines rate Grand Targhee in the top three resorts in North America for snow quality and quantity. Not only do we get more natural snow than most resorts, our snow is drier (less than 5% water content) and thus lighter.

IT’S GUARANTEED – We are so confident that you’ll be satisfied with our snow conditions at Grand Targhee Resort, we guarantee it. If for some reason you’re not, simply return your lift ticket to the Activity Center with 2 or less lift scans/ski runs and you will receive a “Snow Check” good for another lift ticket on any day during the current season. *Some restrictions apply.

IT’S NEVER BEEN EASIER TO SKI POWDER – as more and more people discover the pure joy of powder skiing while riding on new snowboards and powder skis designed for deep snow, powder reserves are becoming more popular and we certainly have our share of those. Another plus – Grand Targhee Resort still boasts one of the lowest ratios of skiers to off-trail powder acres in the country. If there’s not enough of the fluffy stuff for you on Fred’s Mountain, schedule a Snowcat Adventure trip to Peaked Mountain. Our snowcats pamper you with 602 acres and 2,400 vertical feet of unsurpassed scenery and snow conditions.
