If there’s not enough snow for you here in the Northeast, take your skis, snowboards and goggles out west. Grand Targhee Resort, located in Teton Valley, Wyoming on the back-side of Jackson Hole, has been blessed with 142 inches of early-season snowfall already this season, with more snow in the forecast. Targhee is offering a “ski free” program to skiers who have bought season passes to any U.S. or Canadian Ski resort for this 2012 season.
The offer is good for any skier who books three nights or more lodging through Grand Targhee’s website or central reservations. Jackson Hole has a similar amount of snow, and both are amazing places to ski or ride.
- Money-saving tip — flights to Idaho Falls are generally less expensive than to Jackson Hole. Plus, by flying into Idaho Falls, you avoid driving over the Teton Pass to Targhee. The Pass can be a white-knuckle ride if you are not used to driving on snow and ice, or in a rental car with a defroster that doesn’t work properly, as happened to me a couple of years back.
