Sioux Lodge Grand Targhee

It’s incredibly convenient to stay on-mountain at Grand Targhee Ski Resort, but accommodation is limited to a choice of three small ‘lodges’. Sioux Lodge is the pick of the bunch. The recently renovated units of Sioux Lodge are semi self contained and come in a range of configurations from studios to two bedroom units. You’ll sleep soundly knowing that there will only be a few hundred other people on the hill competing for the freshies in the morning.

Where is the Sioux Lodge?

The Sioux Lodge is located at the Grand Targhee ski resort in a very convenient location. The lodge is literally ski-in and can be ski-out if you’re heading down to the Shoshone Lift. The ticket office, shops and restaurants are within 100m of your door. Fantastic!

Grand Targhee ski resort is on the western side of the Grand Teton range, just (literally) on the Wyoming side of the border with Idaho. The nearest town is Driggs and the gateway cities are Idaho Falls in Idaho and Jackson in Wyoming. Grand Targhee offers shuttles from the airports at Jackson and Idaho Falls.

The other ski resorts nearby are both an hour away over Teton Pass near the town of Jackson. Jackson Hole is the big daddy, while on the doorstep of Jackson, the small Snow King is a small, fun and cheap alternative. Sun Valley ski resort (Idaho) is about 4 hours drive away to the south west.

Rooms

The rooms at Sioux Lodge are tastefully decorated and come in three different types – studio, one bedroom loft and 2 bedroom units. The studio sleeps up to 4 people in a queen bed and a bunk located in an alcove. The lofts sleep up to 4 people with the queen bed in an open upstairs loft and the bunk in an alcove in the main living area. The 2 bedroom units sleep up to 8 people.

The two bedroom units feature:
  • Spacious lounge / dining area;
  • Private balcony
  • Flat screen TV and games console;
  • Bedroom one - queen bed;
  • Bedroom two - two sets of bunks (suitable for four children or young adults);
  • Murphy double bed in the lounge area (the classic pull down from the wall variety!);
  • Full dining table;
  • Kitchenette with microwave, refrigerator and coffee maker;
  • One full bathroom downstairs, plus one toilet/wash basin upstairs;
  • Free WiFi internet access.
The lounge areas of the 2 bedroom units are sparsely furnished but are comfortable for stays of a few nights.

Facilities/Services

Facilities and services at the Sioux Lodge are many. They include:
  • Outdoor hot tub and heated swimming pool;
  • Sauna;
  • Exercise room;
  • Laundry facilities;
  • Free self-parking directly in front of the lodge;
  • Lifts, shops, restaurants and ticket office 100 metres away;
  • Ski locker (with lock and key) outside the front door.

Dining

For the penny pinchers amongst us, self catering is difficult at best in Sioux Lodge. The kitchenette is very basic and has no sink, cutlery, crockery, pots or pans. Doing a simple breakfast or lunch is a definite possibility if you stock up on some basics at the supermarkets in the nearby town of Driggs. Some basic items and snacks can be picked up on the hill at the Targhee Trading Post (try the fresh baked cookies –yum!).

Several dining options are available a few metres walk from the lodge in the main plaza at either the Trap Bar, Snorkel’s Deli & Coffee House, Wild Bill’s Grille, The Branding Iron Grill and the ‘Powder Mountain’ Pizza shop.

For breakfast Snorkel’s is the place to go, and it also does reasonable sandwiches for lunch. The Branding Iron serves up first rate dinners.

At the Trap Bar, the Powderhounds had one of the best burgers served to them in the US. It came with bacon and bleu cheese – mmmmm, bleu cheese........ A great range of brews are on tap. Also, get a dose of the unique waffle chips during après. Live music plays most afternoons.

For something different, a short drive to Driggs will reward you with some very tasty tucker and brews at the Royal Wolf. The local teetotalling Mormons apparently objected fiercely to this establishment and hence you’ll find it tucked away out of sight down a side street off the main drag. Anything on the menu is good and the sides are sensational – try the fully loaded Idaho spuds, homemade samosas and potato skins, washed down with a ‘Rogue’ brown ale.

Why Stay at the Sioux Lodge in Grand Targhee?
