Alta's Caribou-Targhee National Forest is where visitors will find Grand Targhee Resort, nestled in the western shadow of the Teton Range and eight miles from Grand Teton herself. With a peak vertical drop of nearly 2,500 feet, Grand Targhee's slopes have a markedly high rate of skiing difficulty, but dogsledding, sleighrides, snowshoeing, and snowmobile riding areas are also abundant for non-daredevils. When ski season ends and summer approaches, music festivals and camping for little ones arrive to take full advantage of the thaw.
The Resort has partnered with the Caribou-Targhee National Forest to offer Naturalist Showshoe Tours where participants experience wildlife, snow tracking, animal behavior, and geology up close and personal. Snowmobile Tours are daytime trips through Yellowstone National Park, Mesa Falls, Grassy Lake, Cave Falls, and a multitude of other natural wonders. Avalanche Dog Demonstrations are inspiring and enlightening lessons put on by the resort's ski patrollers and their trained canine companions.
Single- and Multi-Day Lift Tickets, Multi-Day Pack Passes, and Nordic & Snow Biking Tickets are priced and available here.
