What's to do besides skiing in and around Grand Targhee?

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 

I'm thinking to plan a trip to Grand Targhee next Jan-Feb.  The plan is to take the wife, the kids, grandkids ... a plethora of people.  We'll have 10 -12 people in all, and not all ski or ride.  So what activities are there to do in and around Grand Targhee, as the wife and others get very bored sitting around the condo. 

 

I have looked a bit on-line for Alta, Driggs and other nearby towns, but my sense is there's not much for the wife and our other non-skiers to do.

 

Feedback is very much appreciated.

Great place for family ski vacations if you're going there to ski. Very little else. Non-existent lift lines, tons of soft powder, ego trees for the kids and beautiful views.  On-mountain dining and activities quite limited. You could always plan a day trip or split your time with Jackson.

 

Have fun.

Just stay in Jackson.  Lot's of activities for the non skiers there.

Plan a visit to Yellowstone. You can get the shuttle from Jackson to Flagg Ranch, where you pick up a snow coach. Stay a couple of nights at the Snow Lodge at Old Faithful. Reserve a snowmobile tour to Canyon. Take a snowshoe hike through the geyser basin. Have the snow coach drop you at the Keppler Cascade and snowshoe back to the snow lodge.

How do I know? I took my wife when I did steep and deep camp at Jackson. A visit to yellostone is always special, but it is truly spectacular (and expensive) in winter.

Thanks for the feedback and based on the 'nothing to do in Alta-Driggs, etc' we'll be heading to SLC again.  Staying in Jackson is just not an option.  But I do see Grand Targhee as having all of the makings for a 'guy' trip.
