Yesterday, a few friends and I decided to drive over Teton Pass to ski at Grand Targhee Resort in Alta, Wyoming. It takes about an hour and a half to get to Grand Targhee from Spring Creek Ranch, but with beautiful scenery the entire way.
There are great inexpensive shuttle options if you do not have a car during your stay at Spring Creek Ranch. Whichever way you get there, the skiing at Grand Targhee is a winter activity that shouldn’t be missed.
It was already snowing when we started the drive and continued to snow for the entire day. It was the lightest fluffiest snow you could imagine! Every run we did was amazing! The groomers had a few inches of new snow on top and the ungroomed runs were still pretty soft even though there hadn’t been new snow in a few days!
Grand Targhee is a great resort for families, those that are slightly intimidated by Jackson Hole Mountain Resort, or those just looking for a change of scene. We finished off our day at the Trap Bar, which has a great Après Ski menu and lots of yummy drink specials. It was a great way to spend a Sunday!
