Grand Targhee instituted a smoke-free policy this summer that was one more step towards a tobacco-less environment. All resort indoor facilities have been designated smoke free since 2003, but in June, the resort extended its policy throughout the entire base area, including outdoors. Smoke free bans are now in place in all buildings, parking lots, lift lines, chairlifts, and the entire base area.

Smoking will be permitted in one designated area located at the end of one of the parking lots. "Our pristine environment immediately conjures up clean air and the participation in a healthy lifestyle. Our no-smoking policy definitely complements that expectation," explained Grand Targhee's Susie Barnett-Bushong.
