FACE COVERINGS

Face coverings are recommended 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. 

We ask once again for your cooperation and patience as we navigate through the season, that you continue to use safe practices, limit your time indoors, and social distance wherever you can. We will modify our operations as required by any health restrictions or changing circumstances, and we will continue to try to do the best we can for our employees, community, and guests. Be prepared to use your car as a basecamp for storing personal gear, as gear storage will be limited to designated lockers.

SEASON PASSES & LIFT TICKETS

Lift tickets are now on sale. We recommend that tickets and other products be purchased online at grandtarghee.com in advance for guaranteed access and the best pricing. You will be able to purchase full-day and half-day adult, junior, senior tickets, and Shoshone-only tickets online or in-person at Habitat in Driggs. Season passholders and Mountain Collective passholders are not required to make a reservation. Friends and Family, military, and passholders from other Mountain Collective resorts will not need to be purchased in advance. We will monitor total capacity and advance ticket sales, and tickets may no longer be available on specific days online, at the resort, or at Habitat.

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.

Our new parking lot is ready for this winter. 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 first few rows and most of the back part of the upper lot will remain free and first-come, first served. Our goal is to park cars more efficiently this winter, alleviating the congestion entering the resort and making riding the shuttle more reliable. 

We will be providing dedicated parking lot shuttles that will service the farther out lots throughout the day with dedicated shuttle stops. We have made the decision to designate some of the parking rows as paid parking. Paid parking will be $10 on weekdays and $20 on weekends and holidays. As always, we encourage the use of the free in-town shuttle.

SHUTTLE SCHEDULE

Our housekeeping team is working to keep the resort, lodging, and vacation rentals clean and sanitized during your visit. We have modified our stayover service for winter. Please read the following:

  • 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 recommended for 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. You may pick up your pass at the Activity Center.

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.

Refund requests must be submitted to seasonpass@grandtarghee.com 

No, we are not guaranteeing parking for season passholders or advance purchasers. We have secured the necessary approvals to restrict access to Ski Hill Road when parking is at or near capacity. The shuttle will be your best option as it won’t be restricted if the road is being managed.

We will also have large highway signs in Driggs and Alta with up-to-date information regarding our parking lots and capacity. 

Parking & Road Conditions

No, e-tickets are non-refundable and non-transferrable.

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.
