Cradled in the Western Slope of the Teton Mountains, Grand Targhee is known for great views AND powder averaging 500 inches per year AND a wide assortment of beginner, intermediate slopes, and expert slopes AND a great ski school. Ski Magazine rated Grand Targhee one of the top 3 Family Ski Resorts in the West.

Wildlife, mountains, pure air, groomed tracks and fresh powder come together and make for a cross-country mecca. Our comprehensive Nordic program provides many opportunities to explore the Tetons including lessons for every level. Targhee's 15 kilometers of professionally groomed trails wind through wooded glades and scenic meadows. All trails accommodate both skating and classic cross-country skiing. The unspoiled beauty of this region is not to be missed!

Grand Targhee offers summer fun and terrific activities in the same proportions as their superb winter recreation.

Jackson Hole Mountain Resort: (includes two mountains)

Apres Vous Mountain: With over 2100 vertical feet of groomers and glades, "AV" is known as the intermediate mountain.

Rendezvous Mountain: This is where you will find the terrain that Jackson Hole is famous for: chutes, bowls, couloirs and glades make up most of the terrain. There are advanced intermediate groomers and cruisers as well, runs like Rendezvous Trail, Grand and Amphitheater. The tram travels 4,139 vertical feet above the valley floor to 10,450 feet above sea level. From the top of the Jackson Hole Tram, you can enjoy some of the best consistent fall line skiing and riding in the world. In addition to the legendary skiing and snowboarding, JHMR offer great dining, and night life.

Grand Teton National Park will leave you in awe of the immense, granite peaks which rise up over 7,000 vertical feet from the valley floor. The Grand Teton rises to 13,770 feet. All views of the range are unique, but be sure to check out the 'Cathedral View' near Jenny Lake. A boat ride across Jenny Lake and a hike up Cascade Canyon will give you a better feel for the vast size of the Teton Range. Gazing over Jackson Lake at the beauty of Mt. Moran with it's distinctive flat top is a memory to keep - especially at sunset. Seven morainal lakes run along the base of the range, and more than 100 alpine lakes can be found in the backcountry. Elk, moose, pronghorn, mule deer, and bison are commonly seen in the park. Black bears are common in forested areas, while grizzlies are occasionally observed in the northern part of the park. More than 300 species of birds can be observed, including bald eagles and peregrine falcons.

Yellowstone National Park is the oldest national park in the world, and served as a model for the whole National Parks concept. Sitting atop an ancient volcano, the combination of water and geothermal heating make for some exceedingly diverse sights. The geysers are one of the highlights of the park. The only other places to have geysers are Siberia, New Zealand and Iceland; however, Yellowstone has more geysers than all three of those areas combined. Yellowstone also boasts the world's 2nd largest high-altitude lake and a deep canyon with 2 magnificent waterfalls. Oh, and the wildlife cannot be forgotten: bison, elk, wolves, and grizzly bears just to name a few.

Summer Activities:
The creek is running and Aspen Pointe is in full summer splendor with willows, aspen, wild flowers, and birds singing. The natural habitat attracts deer, moose, fox, and other indigenous animals and birds.

Explore the beauty of the Greater Yellowstone Ecosystem at 8,000 feet above sea level in Targhee National Forest. Wildflower meadows, spruce and aspen forests, hummingbirds, moose, coyotes, and eagles all contribute to one of America's least spoiled natural settings.

Summer activities include:
  • Horseback Riding
  • World Renowned Fly Fishing on Teton and Snake Rivers
  • Mountain Biking
  • Rodeos
  • Golfing with unsurpassed scenery

Winter Activies:

Grand Targhee
Cradled in the western slope of the Teton Mountains, Grand Targhee is a full-service resort with two mountains for you to explore, over 2,000 acres of lift served terrain on legendary Wyoming snow (averaging 500 plus inches a year!)

Continually recognized by national ski publications for consistently great snow, genuine western hospitality, scenic beauty and overall value. In addition to this terrific crew and having what Ski Magazine calls "the most elbow room in North America", Grand Targhee provides you with the optimum environment to learn or improve.

Winter Wildlife Snowshoe Tour
Discover the winter ecosystem of the Targhee National Forest on snowshoes. Our expert guides lead winter wilderness adventures to seek out the tracks and signs of native wildlife and decipher their winter survival adaptations. No previous snowshoe or skiing experience is necessary. Reservations are recommended for this popular tour. Please call the Activity Center at ext. 1355.

Tubing
Snow tubing is a blast and our most popular evening activity for all ages! Enjoy the thrilling ride and convenience of our magic carpet to whisk you back up the hill!

Snowmobiling
Experience the thrill of riding a snowmobile in America's oldest national park. Targhee Snowmobile Tours offer day trips through Yellowstone National Park for a close-up view of bison and Old Faithful. Convenient Teton Valley snowmobile trips are also offered. Enjoy a full day excursion to Mesa Falls, Cave Falls and the Big Hole Mountains. Transportation is provided and families are welcome!

Ice Skating
Targhee has a great Ice Skating rink this season providing lots of fun for the whole family! There is nothing like après ski ice skating under a Teton sunset!

Noridic Program
Wildlife, mountains, pure air, groomed tracks and fresh powder come together and make for a cross-country mecca. Our comprehensive Nordic program provides many opportunities to explore the Tetons including lessons for every level. Targhee's 15 kilometers of professionally groomed trails wind through wooded glades and scenic meadows. All trails accommodate both skating and classic cross-country skiing. The unspoiled beauty of this region is not to be missed!

Jackson Hole Mountain Resort
SKIING Magazine Ranks Jackson Hole Number 1. The magazine searched high and low for the towns with just the right combination of skiing and quality of life, two of the most important factors that skiers will consider in a relocation. After weighing economics such as median home price, income and rental price as well as snow stats that include acres, inches and vert, Skiing Magazine found nothing beat Jackson Hole. (Not even Aspen, Vail, Breckenridge, Park City or Stowe!)

Apres Vous Mountain
With over 2100 vertical feet of groomers and glades, "AV" is known as our intermediate mountain. Wide open groomers like Werner and Moran allow for fast laps on the high speed Apres Vous Quad. The slightly more adventurous might find themselves in gladed areas like Saratoga Bowl or Moran Woods. Halfpipe and park riders will find their preferred terrain secluded between Werner and Hanna. The base of Apres Vous Mountain flattens into our gentle beginner slopes, accessed off of Eagles Rest and Teewinot chairlifts.

Rendezvous Mountain
This is where you will find the terrain that Jackson Hole is famous for: chutes, bowls, couloirs and glades make up most of the terrain. There are advanced intermediate groomers and cruisers as well, runs like Rendezvous Trail, Grand and Amphitheater. The tram travels 4,139 vertical feet above the valley floor to 10,450 feet (3,185 meters) above sea level. From the top of the Jackson Hole Tram, you can enjoy some of the best consistent fall line skiing and riding in the world. The 8-Passenger Bridger Gondola(tm) offers quick access to a great deal of the mountain from its summit, just below the headwall.

JHMR
JHMR is totally a unique destination. Where else can you take a sleigh ride through 10,000 wintering elk, view herds of bison and be asked to ski defensively to avoid moose on the cat-tracks? Or take in the annual Cowboy Ski Challenge where skiers are pulled over 40 mph behind horses over jumps and other obstacles then kick back and drink Moose Drool in the famous Mangy Moose apres-ski hang out. Two National Parks consider JHMR neighbors, statistics show a skier an acre (still!) on the slopes, and powder can be had in the backcountry almost the entire season. If you are looking for pure unadulterated skiing and riding on the wildest mountain in the lower 48, Jackson Hole cannot be beat.

Mangy Moose Saloon
The famous Teton Village bar with top-name, live entertainment. Apres Ski at the Moose is legendary! Established in 1967, the Moose has been voted the #1 restaurant and entertainment complex of all North America ski resorts. Located in Teton Village at the base of the Jackson Hole ski resort.
