I have been to Grand Targhee twice within the past few years and overall it is a great mountain. This place always rates high on snow quality and for good reason. It was never crowded and its location seems to put in a place where it gets some major dumps. Getting there is another story. It is very out of the way, but the scenery is incredible. The view of the Grand Tetons from the top of the mountain is breathtaking. The only negative I can think if is that there seems to be no nightlife at the base village. We only went there for the day, but it was very quiet. Do not expect to come here and hit the bars and restaurants. The base village is very small and compact. You come here for the snow and that is Grand Targhee's greatest selling point. It is also a very family friendly resort. Everyone there was very friendly.
