Facilities & Services

The base area at Grand Targhee is rather compact, but there are adequate services and facilities for the relatively low number of visitors.

Grand Targhee Ski Rentals/Snowboard

A rental shop with some of the latest gear is located in the main plaza. The shop has demo packages and standard snowboard and ski rental packages, but no clothing, backcountry gear or anything else out of the ordinary. Snowshoes can be rented through the Activity Center.

Alternatively, you can stop in Driggs at Peaked Sports for ski rentals.

Facilities for Children

For a smaller resort, Grand Targhee has an exceptional array of kids programs available, all based out of the Kids Club. Day care is available for kids 2 months to 5 years and this can include skiing. The child care is available in half day or full day (including lunch) programs.

Evening child care is also available for kids up to 12, but on Saturday nights it’s a minimum requirement of 3 children and other nights it’s a minimum of 5 kids.

Grand Targhee Ski School

Whether you’re 4 to 6 years old or 6 to 14 years old or a crusty knocked kneed veteran, the Grand Targhee ski and snowboard school has a huge range of programs to suit everyone, including adaptive programs. Group lessons for snowboarding start from age 6. Most group classes will feel like private lessons at Targhee.

For intermediate skiers and above, you might want to spend the extra dough to get out on the Early Tracks program which gets you underway before everyone else at 8.00am, under the watchful eye of an experienced instructor/guide. On a powder day this could be money well spent.

Eating On Mountain

There are no gorgeous mountain-top restaurants that take in the views of the Tetons, with all eateries being located down at the base in the Targhee Main Plaza.

Wild Bill’s Grill inside the Rendezvous day lodge is a cafeteria serving up classic ski resort cafeteria fare. There are signs up everywhere stating that you can’t loiter at the tables for too long, so one can only assume it gets pretty crowded in there at times. Lord knows why anyone would stay in there too long because it’s rather dark and dingy.

Snorkel’s Café is open for breakfast, brunch or lunch, which is a very small café with reasonably nice offerings. Standard American pub grub is available from the Trap Bar. The pick for a really lovely lunch is the Branding Iron Grill, where you can enjoy table service and the views up the slopes. Great nosh and drinks!

On weekends, you can grab a quick lunch at the outdoor BBQ.
