Grand Targhee Resort offers Wyoming’s only snowcat skiing. Snowcat Adventures gives you access to over 600 acres of untracked powder. With runs up to 1 ¼ mile long, covering 2,200 vertical feet, the Snowcat Adventure terrain is suited to intermediate through advanced level skiers and snowboarders.

As an all day experience, you will ski/board up to 11 runs amid trees and open bowls. The dry powder runs aren’t groomed and are up there at 8,000 to 10,000 feet, so be in shape. Half day Snowcat Adventures are available too.

If you aren’t happy with the conditions, you can request a Snowcat check. It’s good for another day of Snowcat skiing/boarding within a year.

The price of your adventure includes water, hot drinks, snacks, and meals that include soup and sandwiches. Gear is not included but is available in the area. Check the website for current pricing and package details, and for any restrictions that may apply.

On the mountain, the Grand Targhee Resort Rental and Demo Shop offers ski rental packages featuring skis & equipment by K2, Nordica, and other quality brands. Snowboarders can find rental packages at the Board Shop. Both offer powder specific rentals.

There are five restaurants on the mountain and more in Diggs, Idaho which is only 12 miles away. Lodging is available in Alta, where Grand Targhee resort is located, Driggs, or Victor, Idaho.

Grand Targhee Resort gave Snowcat Adventures the right name. For powderhounds, it is an experience they will never forget. An annual snowfall of around 500 inches almost guarantees satisfaction. If you are looking for a grand adventure, head to Wyoming’s Grand Tetons.
