Reviews for Grand Targhee Resort
A ski resort's overall star rating displayed here is not calculated based on a simple average but takes several factors, including the age of a review, into account.
Used to ski here a lot 30-45 yrs ago. Made a quick 2 day trip to reunite. First day mtn was blown down. I realize this is a fact of life and accept it. Second day dawned clear blue skies, NO wind, No NEW SNOW. My group, plus most locals and non locals got in line early to take advantage of nice weather. We stood in line for over one hour. Chair opened at 9:50. Very disappointed! Then, to top it off, chairs that close at 3:30, access was denied after 3:15, further cutting into the ski day. I listened to two different excuses, neither should be accepted by management from ski patrol or lift maintenance. There primary jobs are to open the mtn on time and safely. Other mtns with a lot more exposure and concerns do it every day on time and safely. I know, because I was on the team that makes it happen. Not sure if it is growing pains or a lack of management.

Been skiing here for 30 years and still love it. Best wide open terrain and snow anywhere.
Taught my wife and kids to ski here and we come back every year. ... Full Review
Targhee's parking lot completely filled around 8:30am which requires you to ride their shuttle system which is slow and unreliable. Locals are probably aware of this and are able to plan ahead, but there was no obvious warning on their website. I spent an additional 3 hours getting to the resort. I paid for a full day ticket, but was only able to ski a half day as a result. They refused to refund the difference. Very disappointed by the time wasted and the poor/disrespectful customer service team that refused to any attempts at restitution. ... Full Review
Long as there's plenty of Snow, it's a gem. Been skiing there around 15 years. Usually in jan or Feb. Need more Day lockers for skis and equipment, so don't have to haul in and out for a week of skiing. ITS A Pain!. Great staff. Fun,Fun hill. New years eve was cool! My favorite place to chill out. Lol...

The snow quality is great...if you can see it. The locals call it Grand Foghee for a reason. I've been there 3 times, and it's always so foggy you can't see anything. The dreamcatcher lift kept breaking down, the blackfoot lift is new, but it is soooo slow. Why not a hi-speed quad?? Parking was miserable. The traffic was back-up for a mile down the hill. All these little querks are ok if you're charging $60-$80 for a ticket, but at $100. No way.
This place rests it's income solely on the snow. Everything else is a joke.... Full Review
Such a gem, but I hope it stays a secret. Mainly for the local Driggs crowd and students at BYUI (in Rexburg). Many are drawn to Jackson Hole and that is FINE ! We got lucky with a POW day in April. I was blown-away that it lasted SO LONG. Back East (& most resorts in the West), it's matted down within an hour or so, therefore you must get on it EARLY - because of the crowds. Not here. Well into the afternoon, you could still leave fresh tracks. Days like that and you can't wait to return. I was simply impressed away how awesome this resort was (& I've been to MOST of the Utah resorts too). My ONLY petty complaint that day, was the cloud cover, as you couldn't see the Tetons. ...

Our family has been going to Targhee for 4 years. Our two children are 6 and 8. I don't think they know life not skiing Targhee, that is pretty cool.
The mountain accommodations are not the best, but regardless represent amazing value.
The mountain staff is helpful and quite knowledgeable.
As for the skiing the mountain from a person that has been skiing for 40+ years, simply amazing. The POW left by storm dumps that hit this mountain boggle the mind.
This mountain is the best kept secret in all of skiing.

Spent three days riding at Grand Targhee 2/15-17/2018. Had an amazing time. Snowed all night before first day of riding and before 2pm it was literally knee deep and then the sun came out and it was amazing. Next two days were equally good but never saw the sun again and never saw the tetons. Top of the main lift on the 17th was downright terrifying the visibility was so poor it was skiing by feel. I suppose this is the price you pay for a constant snow cloud. Everyone was super friendly and I never had to wait in line.... Full Review
Grand Targhee is a true gem of a mountain. It really has everything you could want from tons of snow every year, excellent terrain, and minimal crowds. It's remote location is part of why it is so awesome. I only waited in one short lift line on a Saturday and the conditions were excellent. ... Full Review
Great place for my 3 kids (7 years, 10 years, and 12 years) to learn and strut their stuff and for me (lived and worked at ski resorts for 6 years and got pretty good) This place has it all. Make sure you show up in shape because there are no lift lines to recover. ... Full Review
