Grand Targhee Resort
“There’s only one word for skiing at Grand Targhee: extraordinary. (Though other words such as effortless, knee-deep, and uncrowded all apply.) The key is the more than 500 inches a year that fall on the backside of the Tetons – the snowier Western side – each year. Add to that a skiable terrain of nearly 2,000 acres, with more than 1,000 reserved for SnowCat Adventures, and you have an experience beyond compare. In addition to our legendary powder, families love our corduroy grooming – with cruising runs that are a signature of Grand Targhee Resort.”
The Grand Targhee Experience
Your vacation deserves the finest transportation, so don’t be concerned with driving mountain passes, traveling with a group of strangers, or running late for a schedule! Far better than a shuttle service, taxi, or car rental, ANA’s GRAND EXCURSIONS offers private trips, flexible departures, safe & spacious transport, baggage storage, DVDs, assistance with all details, hot beverages/water/snacks en route, mountain advice, and surprises for kids. Round trip “Wait & Return” service only. A perfect solution for Snow-Cat participants, who wish to arrive in time for the first run and have a flexible return schedule. Or a perfect option for those not interested in the group experience of the shuttle and who prefer amenities not available with a taxi or rental car. We offer transportation to Grand Targhee as a stand-alone option or you may wish helpful assistance, while visiting the resort, and my add on our optional Mountain Assistance Service.
Additional and Optional
Mountain Assistance Service
This personalized additional service can help you have a most relaxing and enjoyable day. A guide’s phone call the night before will confirm departure time, answer questions, and clarify details. Upon arrival, finish dressing in the spacious vehicle, while tickets are purchased and equipment is transported. A mountain resort orientation familiarizes you with the facilities and mountain runs. Your reserved lunch table is ready when you are. You will have access to your extra belongings stored securely in the vehicle. Assistance can also be provided for a variety of personal requests, such as childcare, photography, advice, and help to obtain rentals or other activities, including spa relaxation, Snow-Cat skiing, snow biking, dog-sledding, snow-shoeing, Nordic skiing, paragliding, and shopping to the nearby town of Driggs, ID. An entire group, with a variety of interests, can enjoy a day at Grand Targhee Resort, without everyone participating in the same activity.
Pick up and return times will vary upon your request.
Lifts open at 9am. Half-day tickets begin at 12:30pm. Lifts close at 4pm.
Travel time is approximately 1½ hrs from Jackson to Grand Targhee under typical winter conditions. You may determine the schedule, and at the day’s end you can enjoy the shops after skiing, adult beverages at the bar, a stop for a famous huckle-berry milk shake, or perhaps schedule an early return.
(fun facts: Snowflakes are really clear; the way they reflect light makes them look white.)
