Apres Ski in Grand Targhee

Grand Targhee Village

Grand Targhee has a small base village with several restaurants, bars, shops, three hotels, a convenience store and a Day Spa. There isn’t much to do, but there are just enough options to hold your attention for a long ski weekend or short ski break in the week.

The village is home to Teton Mountain Outfitters, a high-end retail outfitter for apparel and ski equipment. The shop also performs custom boot fittings to maximize your fun in the powder. Boarders head to Fred’s Board Shop. The village also has a small General Storewith basic supplies and Grand Targhee logo-ed merchandise.

Other activities for those not tracking up Grand Targhee’s legendary powder are available through the Activity Center and include cross-country skiing, tubing and guided nature hikes as well as sleigh rides. For those looking to take it a little easier, the resort also has a day spa on site.

If you’re looking for something else, take a short drive down the valley to Driggs, Idaho, where Main Street offers additional shops and restaurants.

Grand Targhee Restaurants, Bars & Apres Ski

Apres-ski at Grand Targhee is surprisingly robust given the small size and scale of the village. Your best bet for après ski is the Trap Bar. Pony up to the bar and lie like a local about your day on the slopes.

Grand Targhee’s small village has a handful of restaurants and bars. If staying in the resort village, The Branding Iron is as popular at dinner as at lunch and offers a more expansive menu for dinner including chic local cuisine as well as traditional comfort food.

The Trap Bar and Grille comes alive at night and is the hub of the resort’s (rather tame) nightlife. Live musical acts perform frequently throughout the winter and sleigh ride dinners are also available through the resorts Activity Center.

Nearby Driggs, Idaho is the closest major town. If you’re looking for authentic Southwestern cuisine, we recommend the Fuego grill.

On the legal side, Wyoming’s liquor laws are particularly strict. While in every US state you must be 21 years old to consume alcohol, Wyoming law requires you to be 21 just to enter a bar, even during the day. This bizarre requirement can pose problems for groups with persons of varying ages, so if your group includes young adults under the age of 21, please be advised accordingly.

The liquor laws should not be a problem when dining at Grand Targhee resort itself as the restaurants have roped off bar areas set apart from the restaurant which allows patrons of all ages to dine together.

Grand Targhee offers a variety of activities beyond alpine skiing, which include nordic skiing, snowshoeing and snow tubing.

Both are serviced by a cozy nordic center.  Fat tire biking and snow tubing round out the more adventurous winter offerings. The resort also offers avalanche dog demonstrations on Saturday afternoons at 1pm throughout the winter.

If you’re looking to venture outside the resort, Grand Targhee is located near to two of Americ’as most famous national parks – Grand Teton National Park and Yellowstone National Park to the north. Grand Targhee is a near to both parks, where vistors will encouter some of the continent’s most majestic wildlife.
