However, if you hit it wrong, and come after a period of no new snow, the area can be a bit draggy (nothing especially steep or thrilling in-bounds).
If you hit it right, with ample fresh snow, Targhee offers days of untracked bliss. The same snow at Jackson Hole is skiied out in a few hours (and not as deep).
To be fair, the terrain at Jackson is so phenomenal that you don't need fresh snow to have an epic day.
Final comment, the term "Grand Foghee" has merit. The lovely photo above represents one of the few bluebird days per year. I've only had one, and we've been there 3 times. Regardless, Targhee is a great American original!
