does GT have "the goods"?

are you nutters, man?

GT has the best snow in the Rockies right now. it might not be epic in their long history of great seasons, but it surely de-pantses most of the rest of WY, MT, CO, ID, NM

If you guys keep talking up GT I just might loose what ability to concentrate I have left. [img]smile.gif[/img]

I'll be there in a couple of weeks and I can't wait.

If you're going to GT, I have to reccomend you make a reservation and eat at the Lost Horizon Inn. It's a 7 course traditional Japanese feast to die for. The owners of the Inn are also VERY nice people. It's between Driggs and the ski resort, anyone in town will know the place.

I was there two weeks ago. I think the last time I saw that much snow at the base of an area was at Kirkwood in March 2000. Snow ghosts were haunting the mountain. The drive up... damn can't they do a better job of clearing the access road three days after the last storm for us tourists?

I don't know about Targhee, but here's this morning's report from over the hill at Jackson. *Usually*, Targhee will get nearly twice as much snow as Teton Village in a given storm.

I'd recommend you get your butt out there immediately.

Report made at 6:00 on 2/21/03

New Snow in the Last 24 Hours:
11" at the Summit and 8" Mid-Mountain

Snow Depth:
91" at the Summit and 81" Mid-Mountain

Total Snowfall:
over 341" at the Summit and 268" Mid-Mountain

Today is the powder day we've been waiting for all week! Ths storm is promising to continue through Saturday night, bringing up to 12-18" of new snow by Sunday morning. I know I'll be in the trees today, but snow conditions will be amazing all over the mountain, especially over trails that were groomed early like Ampitheater and Gros Ventre. See you on the slopes!

Great Place, that Targhee. Friendly folks and great amounts of GREAT snow. I was there 2 weeks ago and conditions were awesome. BEWARE...Snow=clouds so there is a trade off. The mountain can be VERY foggy. Funny thing...when I was there (2/8--2/10)the resort always seemed to UNDERREPORT the amount of snow they had received. Example...on 2/10 they rerported 9 inches but the snow was OVER MY KNEES.. Does this place have the goods?!?!?! Yoe better believe it. This place is just a great skiers'/boarders' mountain. PS not much nightlife but after a day on that mountain you won't have much energy left. Go for it!
