Why Go: Though it doesn’t officially open this year until Nov. 22, Grand Targhee has been known to open early when conditions permit (with an annual average snowfall of 500+ inches, conditions permit about 25 to 30 percent of the time). And unlike at many other resorts, early-season skiing at Targhee—starting on the Shoshone lift and spreading out from there—is almost exclusively on natural snow. 

Deals: Grand Targhee is offering 30-percent off lodging if you book by Oct. 30, as well as other lodging discounts. In addtion, adult early-season lift ticket pricing starts at $59. 

Don’t Miss: Check out Targhee’s early-season Snowcat Adventure Packages, which start at just $413 per person. The offer includes three nights’ lodging, a one-day lift ticket, and a full day of Grand Targhee Snowcat Adventure skiing between opening day and Dec. 19.
