This was my second trip ever out West. Went Dec 16-19, 2007. Originally scheduled Steamboat, but lack of snow there and abundance at Targhee made my change to GT. Was I ever glad. What a great experience. NO LIFT LINES. The lightest powder I've ever seen. Plenty of snow (and was only Mid December). The friendliest staff. And great lodging for the price. It was fogged in and snowing 2 of the 3 days I was there, but, I LOVED IT. Made me felt I was in the middle of nowhere with the whole mountain to myself. Gotta get back there next December.
