Grand Targhee Resort#9 in Best Things To Do in Jackson Hole
For those of you who aren't quite ready for the black diamond slopes at the Jackson Hole Mountain Resort, the Grand Targhee Resort offers easier, more family-friendly runs. Located in Alta, Wyoming – a small town about 38 miles northwest of Jackson – this resort has claimed two of the Teton Mountains as its own. Here you'll find more than 2,500 acres of ski terrain that sees an average of 500 inches of snowfall each year. A sizeable portion of the resort caters to beginner and intermediate skiers, plus you can take ski lessons at Grand Targhee. However, recent visitors said that more advanced powder hounds will find several runs that cater to their skill level as well.
Recent travelers enjoyed their time at Grand Targhee Resort and noted that the resort's small size meant fewer crowds, which was a much appreciated reprieve from Jackson Hole's more congested slopes. Some travelers strongly encouraged a visit to the on-site naturalist, whose knowledge in the region's geography and botany enhanced their experience at the resort. Others, however, said if you're a skier who's looking for a challenge, try a different resort.
Grand Targhee Resort is open year-round, offering visitors a variety of warm-weather activities (such as mountain biking, hiking and swimming). The ski area is open from late November to April, with lifts operating between 9 a.m. and 4 p.m. every day, with abbreviated hours on select lifts. Full-day lift tickets in the winter cost $90 for adults ages 13 and older, with discounts offered for seniors and children younger than age 12.
