FACE COVERINGS

Face coverings will be required inside all Grand Targhee buildings and public transportation. We will continue to follow all state and federal mandates and guidelines throughout the winter. Please respect your fellow skiers and snowboarders along with our employees while spreading good vibes. 

SEASON PASSES & LIFT TICKETS

Lift tickets must be purchased in advance and include full-day and half-day adult, junior, and senior tickets and Shoshone only tickets. Purchase lift tickets at least seven days in advance to save (quantiles are limited). Season passholders and Mountain Collective passholders are not required to make a reservation.

LIFT OPERATIONS

SHUTTLES & PARKING

Grand Targhee Resort is committed to providing a safe and healthy experience this winter. There will be three shuttles running every hour from Driggs to the Resort. There will also be one dedicated shuttle that will run between Victor and Driggs.

Grand Targhee Resort’s new parking lot is scheduled for completion by October 2021. This new lot will increase parking capacity by 30%. With this new lot, the resort is implementing a new flow throughout the lots and dedicating a small area for paid parking. 

 

The resort is investing in a dedicated parking lot shuttle that will service all lots and run throughout the day. These two large shuttles will have designated stops throughout each lot and will run regularly throughout the day. For the resort to provide this service and help fund the new parking lot, the resort has decided to delegate some of the parking as paid parking. Paid parking will be $10 and $20 on weekends and holidays. 

 

To improve the traffic flow into the resort, there will be a new configuration to the parking lot, and traffic will move in one direction. The main upper lot will now be one way. The first few and the last six rows will remain open to the public free of charge, with four rows designated for paid parking in the middle. All other lots will be free to park in. Once the main lot is full, traffic will flow into both lower lots, alleviating the traffic build-up on Ski Hill Road.

When to seek emergency medical attention

  • Trouble breathing
  • Persistent pain or pressure in the chest
  • New confusion
  • Inability to wake or stay awake
  • Bluish lips or face

*This list is not all possible symptoms. Please call your medical provider for any other symptoms that are severe or concerning to you.

Yes, face coverings are mandatory in all buildings and transportation.

Face coverings are mandatory for anyone over the age of 5.

There are no exceptions to our face-covering policy. 

Grand Targhee Resort will no longer be offering a mask or face covering exemption. The resort continues to operate with the most up to date information from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), the U.S. Department of Labor Occupation Safety and Health Administration (OSHA), and state and local public health agencies to impose legitimate safety requirements necessary for a safe operation based on real health risks.

These safety requirements are consistent with regulations about direct threats from the ADA and are consistent with advice from the CDC and public health authorities. A direct threat is a significant risk to the health or safety of others that cannot be eliminated by a modification of policies, practices, or procedures, or by the provision of auxiliary aids or services. The resort is no longer offering accommodations for guests who are unable to wear face coverings.

Guests must contact the resort 72 hours before their arrival of any unique accessibility or accommodation concerns. Please email exemption.request@grandtarghee.com.

Thank you for your continued support as we work through operating with COVID-19. We will continue to adjust our policies as we see fit to operate safely for all. It is going to take all of us to make this season safe. Wear a face covering, social distance, and respect the guidelines we have put in place. 

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. 

If you do not have a face covering you may purchase a “buff” from Teton Mountain Outfitters or The Board Shop. We will have a limited supply of face masks for guests who enter our facilities. 

Advanced lift ticket purchase is required for all day single and mulit-day lift tickets. Reservations are not required for season passholders or  Mountain Collective Passholders. 

If you plan on purchasing tickets with a club card, 5th or 6th grade pass, children 5 & Under tickets, Nordic, adaptive, military discount or other discount programs INCLUDING the season pass Friends and Family Program, you will need to present your card at the ticket window for purchase. You may email activity@grandtarghee.com with questions. We have selected a ticket release quantity which we feel will allow us to support our passholders and visitors. Please be patient with this process!

No, you do not have to make a reservation. More information to come on where you can pick up your pass.

The resort is offering a no-questions-asked refund policy on the purchase of your season pass. If you wish to refund your season pass at Grand Targhee for the 2021/22 winter season, then you may request a full refund prior to November 15, 2021. After November 15, 2021, you must have purchased season pass insurance to be eligible for a refund or credit toward your 2022/23 season pass.

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.
