To be honest, this is my favorite place to ski! Grand Targhee Resort is a wonderful place to ski or snowboard. The pure, deep, powder snow that seems to always be there is amazing. It is close and accessable. The lift lines are almost always very short. There are plenty of intermediate slopes, and also some excellent advanced terrain. The beginners area is very good. It can be a children's paradise. Though with my luck I often encounter fog and heavy snow fall while I am on the mountain, I have come to love it; for that is how it can boast over 500 inches of snow a year! It snows a lot! When it is clear, the views of the Teton mountains are exquisite! It really can be breathtaking to see the surrounding peaks.
