Targhee Ski Resort

    Ski- Grand Targhee Resort is a year round mountain resort situated on the western slope of the Tetons in Alta, Wyoming, accessible only through Teton Valley, Idaho. Located in the Caribou-Targhee National Forest, our abundance of light powder snow (more than 500 inches annually) and lack of lift lines creates an uncrowded (wide open) skier and snowboarder paradise. We are continually recognized for our great snow, genuine western hospitality, scenic beauty, excellent value and commitment to sustainability.
