The Beautiful Teton Valley
Back in the 1960’s the vision for creating this magnificent resort in the heart of the Tetons was conceived of by local families. They were seeking quality recreation opportunities for their children in an area blessed with amazing natural resources, like copious amounts of snow and beautiful mountains, but not necessarily the infrastructure to enjoy these resources. Thus, Grand Targhee was born, and families and have been reaping the rewards ever since. Teton Springs Resort and Grand Targhee year after year are the perfect partners for creating a quality family winter vacation.
