Grand Targhee

post #1 of 12
Thread Starter 
Planning a trip to Targhee for the end of March- can anyone recommend a couple of good lodging choices (probably in Driggs). Being close to the resort is a major plus for us, as we will have to be there pretty early. Thanks in advance!

The Pines Motel in Driggs is great.  Right in town so can walk to a number of restaurants.  Outdoor hot tub.

Would anyone call Targhee a destination resort?  I ski free there on my local ski pass but an not sure just skiing there would be worth the expense of the trip...

Depends . . . Targhee has been mentioned for families looking for a Dec holiday destination that's not too crowded.  I like to ski Targhee when going to JH or driving up to Big Sky from SLC.  Not sure I would schedule a full week at GT, but would be happy to spend 3-4 days.  Especially if storm chasing a bit.

 

I'm an advanced skier who likes powder but could certainly use more experience in powder.  GT terrain is good for that.  In the same way that Powder Mountain does with powder conditions.  Not places I would go to on a solo trip, but happy to spend time there with a ski buddy or two or three.

Anyone has any advice on how/where to ski Targhee?  

 

Also good advice on places to eat in Driggs/Alta area would be greatly appreciated.  Any other tips?

 

thanks!

We had a very good dinner at the Royal Wolf in Driggs.  Not just standard bar food.  Pays to go early because it's small and fills up.

The catski operation is first class and is totally worth it.  I'd consider Targhee a destination resort.

Alexzn,

I second the Wolf.👍👍

Tony's is good for pizza. Also 👍👍

I do consider GT a destination resort.

Sorry I missed your earlier inquiries.

We had a great time, daughter did very well in the comp.  Missed the big powder day on Tue by a day, but got plenty of great skiing Wed-Fri.  Special thanks to HarkinBanks for the local info!

So do you think GT could be consider a "destination resort"? :)

 

The day after a powder dump can be pretty fun at GT.  That's what I got the first time there.
