Grand Targhee

SKI - - WEST - —S.S.

Nes­tled in the western slope of the Te­ton Range, Grand Targhee re­mains in­fa­mous for deep snow through­out the sea­son. East­bound Pa­cific storms back up against the Te­tons and un­load on Targhee, some­times mak­ing vis­i­bil­ity an is­sue, but the mi­nor in­con­ve­nience is well worth it for con­stant re­freshes of the fluffy stuff. When the clouds do break, the scenery is un­real, and the sur­pris­ingly un­crowded slopes can feel “like hav­ing your own ski area.” While Targhee’s neigh­bor on the other side of the Te­tons, Jack­son Hole, scores higher for ex­treme ter­rain and chal­lenge, Targhee of­fers an in­clu­sive set of wide-open runs, tree trails, and chal­leng­ing bowls for all abil­i­ties, mak­ing it a “great fam­ily hill with a lo­cal feel.” Lodg­ing, din­ing, and après on the moun­tain are lim­ited, but the deep snow and ex­cel­lent ter­rain keep Targhee one of the “best-kept se­crets in the U.S.”
