ok time for the actual TR.

Day one Grand Targhee.

this is the first thing that pops into my head when I think about Grand Targhee now, the Grand Teton.

Skied the "Ghee" saturday with Tacamoluv, Free Range Lobster, and Meatpuppet all from the TGR board. We had a great chill crew for this day. Grand Targhee is pretty mellow, chill place. Lots of families and people of all ages were out enjoying the sunshine, warm temps(50s) and soft snow. I like this place alot reminds of the reason why when and if I have family why the "local" hill will be my haunt while my kids grow up.

Targhee Terrain isnt flat and isnt that steep. in fact its pretty much the same pitch everywhere you go. Starting from skiers left you have blackfoot double which services Blue cruisers and blue level offpiste bowl skiing. Here are some pictures from the run underneath the Floyd Fantasy a blue/black which is no steeper than upper emma.

The main lift and the one in the middle is Dream Catcher a 2000 vertical feet High Speed Quad that services mostly Blue groomers and wide open blue level bowl skiing. It also services some of the best views I have seen at a ski area.

Peaked Mountain was not open for hiking but those who have seen anomaly have seen this face before.

The furtherest right lift on the mountain is Sacajawea High Speed Quad. this lift services again blue groomers some actual tree skiing(that was rotted out and not that fun), and the hike up to Peaked Mountain.

thanks to Straightline Tacluv's hands are out in front.

Free Range Lobster is ok on a board but he REALLY rips on teles.

Cat skiing terrain at targhee. prime exsposure for corn snow.

Overall I really like this place, nice chill, great coverage, local vibe, and never overbearing. The views are awesome too. Very cool place to go.

Hey, on the Corbet's shot (I didn't go either) -- it looks like the rut at the bottom is gone. Or is that just the camera angle?

So why didn't you guys PM me that you were coming up?

I was there Friday, Saturday & Sunday.

You could have possibly ridden a KATANA or a DUKE!
