Grand Targhee

The Targhee Lodge is the most affordable; the Teewinot is a step up with available hot tub among the amenities; Sioux Lodge Suites are more like a home away from home, with refrigerator and microwave available, as well as a sitting area and a spa, outdoor heated pool and hot tub nearby. These lodges are close in to the ski areas. Further out, you can rent a condo or vacation home for your stay. These are especially convenient and affordable if you are bringing a large group. For your dining pleasure, there are several choices, including the Targhee Steakhouse, serving breakfast, lunch and dinner. Snorkel's Cafe, Wild Bill's Grille, or the Trap Bar & Grille round out your choices.

Getting There

In a related article we have information on how to get to the Jackson Hole area, which is close to most of the ski resorts we've mentioned, either by car or by airplane. If you're flying in, most of the resorts will provide shuttle service to and from the airport, or you can rent a car from one of the major car rental agencies at the Jackson airport. If you're going to Big Horn, we mentioned the 3 airports that aren't too far from there in an earlier paragraph. Driving? Jackson area ski resorts are best reached through Salt Lake if you're coming from the south, since they are pretty close to the Idaho border. Coming from the west, depending on your departure place you can drive to Salt Lake then north, or if coming from the west but further north of Salt Lake, drive through Idaho Falls to Driggs, then head east from there.
