Grand Targhee Skiing
comes in many shapes and flavors. There are the standard groomed runs, although it’s apparent pretty quickly that there’s not much about the snow or this mountain, or skiing Grand Targhee in general that’s standard fare. There’s the coveted powder reserves where the snow brushesyour cheeks with every turn and your goggles cloud up with your own heavy breathing. Long meandering ski trails, with the longest at 2 & ½ miles in length, are hardly conducive to taking a break. There are no dreaded cat tracks in the middle of the run forcing you take a breather. You never want this ride to stop.
