Resort Roadtrip: Grand Targhee

For this week's Resort Roadtrip blog series, we traveled to Grand Targhee in Alta, Wyoming. With more than 500 inches annually of light powder snow and and wide open spaces (2602 acres!), it doesn't get much better than Grand Targhee. Here is what Grand Targhee had to say about their resort:

1. How many runs and chairlifts do you have at the resort?

       5

      2. What is the typical condition at the resort, and what type of lens should we be prepared to use?

        Sunny lens and low light – cloudy day/low visibility (we don’t like the word fog) ☺ We are in the clouds.

        Optimal Lenses:

        Ice Lense - great for cloudy/foggy days and when it's a little darker

          Mary’s
