Grand Targhee Resort

3300 Ski Hill Rd, Alta, WY 83414, United States

Grand Targhee Resort is a ski resort situated on the west side of the Teton Range in western Wyoming. The west side lends itself to gentler, (often) powdery slopes featuring diverse terrain great for people of all levels. As summertime rolls around, miles of cross-country and downhill bike trails are uncovered across the mountain while live music is trickled into the scene.

    Honestly one of my favorite 'off the map' resorts. Always a great place to grab some powder caches, friendly staff with a mom and pop feel. They do have a hotel at the mountain if that is your fancy. Prices are resonable and planning on some serious upgrades over the 2023 winter!

    I hate posting negative reviews. But this was not at all what we expected when we booked on Expedia. We were looking for reasonably priced hotel near Jackson. The address listed on our confirmation was incorrect and finally figured out we still had another 20 min drive. When we tried calling to confirm the address, it was impossible to get anyone on the phone as we kept getting redirected to various auto messages. When we finally arrived, we were confused if we had actually made it to the correct location as the parking lot appeared to be more of a festival setting and unleashed dogs. (I love dogs, but having been preciously attacked by a Rottweiler, it’s unsettling seeing dogs all around unleashed). Come to find it was more of a mountain biking resort in the summer which was not at all communicated on Expedia. When we finally got checked in to the room, it was dated which we could live with but sink was broken and didn’t drain, which was annoying trying to wash your hands or brush teeth. Walls were paper thin so you could hear every step, door shut, and voice from above. My breaking point was the obnoxious noise of the band playing till almost midnight and the loud guests who had no respect for others trying to get sleep, especially when we had a long travel day and flight to catch the following day. Some pluses: the trap grille had very good food and some of the best wings I have ever had. My husband had responded to a Expedia survey when he woke up from the loud noise, and shortly after, we got a call at 9:30 from the manager on duty asking how he could make our stay better. At that point, there was nothing that could be done as the band wasn’t going to quit playing and they weren’t going to fix the paper thin walls; and my husband just wanted to get back to bed. Overall, if someone is expecting this type of environment, I could see where it could be enjoyable if you’re into the activities more than the accommodations. If you’re just looking for comfortable accommodations within a reasonable distance to the airport, I would recommend elsewhere or pay close attention to all the reviews so you know what your getting into. I would recommend the owners update their listings on the hotel websites to reflect accurate information.

    I'm impressed with Grand Targhee. We got lucky and hit 2 powder days of our 3 days. Wow. Short lift lines, good terrain, and family friendly. Only criticism was scanning tickets each time up the lift

    Great spring skiing at Targhee. It was a sunny Saturday in March and no lines. Was finding great snow in the woods and soft bumps. I would recommend this place.

    We had a great time at Grand Targhee. We were there on a weekend after three days at Jackson Hole. The parking lot was full on the Saturday but there were no real crowds on the hill except for a few lift lines here and there. Sunday was much quieter. We arrived at 830am and got parking right up front. Beautiful place with great terrain. It was a really nice change of pace from Jackson Hole which definitely feels like the "big city" of skiing by comparison. I can't wait to get back on a powder day. The next time I come I will bring my XC gear too as the track looks phenomenal from up above on the hill.
