Winter Family Getaways
Grand Targhee Resort is on many westerners list of favorite winter family getaways. Targhee has a national reputation as well, so it definitely appeals to a broader audience from various pockets across the country. However, it’s particularly obvious that ski and snowboard aficionados in the Rocky Mountain region truly appreciate what this small, but ultra special resort, offers winter sports enthusiasts of all ages. Grand Targhee is located within the grandeur of the Teton Mountains, just inside the Wyoming border, in an unassuming and lovely little hamlet called Alta, Wyoming. There’s no commercial activity in Alta during your family ski vacation. The downtown is basically a well-kept sheep farm, surrounded by a quaint school and church, adding to its overall charm for those passing thru on a cozy winter family getaway.
