Winter Operations 2020/21

Advanced Lift Ticket Purchase Required – Update to Operational Plan

This coming winter is going to be much different than the ones in the past. We have put precautions and plans in place to operate November 20, 2020 – April 11, 2021, opening day conditions permitting. It is going to take the cooperation of all guests and employees to keep this a safe and healthy winter. The COVID environment is ever-changing and could disrupt operations and our plan at any moment. We may have to make quick operational changes to comply with local, state, and government authorities.

We are asking you to support and respect the decisions we have made so we can continue to operate. It is going to take all of us working together to enjoy every possible powder day we can. We are asking that you minimize your time in our buildings and maximize the time outdoors. Please use your cars as a basecamp while gearing up for the morning. We will have additional outside seating and heaters, but access to buildings will be limited due to capacity restrictions. Our mandatory face coverings will continue throughout winter; face coverings will be required inside all buildings, while waiting to load the lifts, riding the lifts, and when a six-foot distancing cannot be maintained. 

Our employees undergo daily health screens and additional training on COVID safety. We are continuing with increased frequency of cleaning in high trafficked areas and high touch surfaces. We are using CDC approved disinfecting solutions to clean throughout the resort and our vacation rentals, and we are using electro static sprayers in our public areas and UV light wands in our guest rooms and vacation rentals.

We are encouraging advanced purchases of day lift tickets, gear rentals, and ski and snowboard lessons. We will be shipping out all season passes this winter. Please make sure to read the information closely and help us expedite service.

Thank you for an incredible summer and doing your part in getting us through to the end. Here’s to a safe and healthy winter. We can’t wait to see you on the mountain and share the love of powder!

It is recommended that you come prepared with your own face covering. “Buffs” should be a part of your winter dress as it will also help with the cold temperatures and sunny days.  You may want to think about packing more than one face covering, as the weather could dampen it.

COVID-19 | SPECIAL CONSIDERATION  

If a governmental agency restricts recreational travel from the state, county or country from which a traveler resides, if a stay-at-home order or quarantine is mandated prior to traveling or upon return to the traveler’s home state, or, if a traveler tests positive for COVID-19, Grand Targhee Resort will issue a full refund or rescheduling within the same season for lodging, lift tickets, and activities.  The effective date of the restriction must occur prior to the traveler’s arrival at Grand Targhee Resort.  The Resort will not charge for services it is unable to provide due to COVID-19 with respect to lodging, lift tickets, and activities. 

Travelers must provide written documentation to reservations@grandtarghee.com.   

Reservations may be canceled by the Grand Targhee Resort, for any or no cause or reason.  In the event of cancellation by the Resort, reservations will be re-booked or relocated, or refunded in full.  Notice (which may be sent via e-mail) of cancellation will be provided. 

There is not a singles lift line. You  may form your own group at your own discretion. Individuals are permitted to ride single on all lifts if they would like. You may ride the lift with unrelated parties at your own discretion. 

The best place for your season pass is where you can easily present it to our ticket checkers. A lanyard works well as long as you have it ready to go and are presenting it to our ticket checkers. You may also purchase a season pass sleeve that fits around your arm from Teton Mountain Outfitters. 

Your lift ticket should be visible and easy to access for our ticket checkers. Please make sure that we will be able to access it within an arm’s reach. Your jacket’s side pocket is a great, visible location.
