About the Ski Resort

Grand Targhee Ski & Summer Resort is nestled in the Targhee National Forest at 8,000 feet in the high country of the Tetons and lies 42 miles west of Jackson, Wyo.

Famous for its consistently superb snow conditions -- more than 500 inches a year of the lightest snow -- this family run, family-oriented resort has two mountains.

Fred's Mountain is served by three chairlifts and a surface lift and offers 2,200 vertical feet and 1,500 skiable acres (300 crafted and 1,200 powder.) The mountain is predominantly intermediate to advanced-intermediate.

Targhee's second mountain, Peaked Mountain, is reserved for snowcat powder skiing. You can ski 3,000 acres, 2,800 feet of vertical and unsurpassed scenery and snow conditions.

Rounding out Targhee's ski opportunities are 15 km of groomed cross-country trails, and a permanent freestyle half-pipe for snowboard skiing.

Grand Targhee is a place where you can bring the kids and everyone will have a great time playing and skiing. The Kid's Club, 2 months to 5 years, has its own log cabin and spends time doing indoor activities as well as ski instruction. For ages 6 to 14, there's the all new Powder Scouts Program.
