Full review

We skied Grand Targhee in late March 2008. There was a big snowstorm that day and visibility was awful. The much-vaunted views of the Tetons were completely obscured. Furthermore, of the three non-bunny lifts, one was closed due to high winds. But, guess what? We LOVED it. Grand Targhee is a very special place and we felt lucky to ski there. We stumbled across gigantic open bowls of deep powder and skied through forests of snow-covered pines. Not just our skis but our boots -- all the way up the calves -- were buried in powder as we cut fresh tracks one run after another. The terrain was plenty steep for advanced but not extreme skiers like ourselves. The lifts are speedy and efficient, the lifties were smiling and the whole place had a party atmosphere. Even the french fries were outstanding. Another point: if you have youngsters in your group, GT has the best bunny hill area I've ever seen anywhere, with a good variety of runs, tree skiing and respectable mini-pitches where you can actually get in a few real turns. (Much better greens than Jackson Hole.) In short, if there's any way for you to get to GT, go there!
