The single largest regret that I have about our short trip to Jackson Hole was that we didn’t get the opportunity to experience the gorgeous snow conditions and wonderful terrain of Grand Targhee, which is a fairly short 1 hr 45 min. drive from Jackson Hole, on the other side of the Grand Teton range. Targhee boasts smaller crowds, over 500 inches of natural snowfall per year, and a guarantee that if you are not satisfied with the snow conditions on any particular day, you may return your ski pass and receive a voucher to ski on another day that same year.
There’s no snow making here - and they don’t need it. The motto: “snow from heaven, not from hoses.” Everyone to whom we spoke gave this place rave reviews. Targhee will surely be one of my first stops when I return to JH.
