Yes “WinterTwoThousandHeaven” has begun!  LaNina is delivering the goods to our mountains, especially to the Tetons and Grand Targhee Resort. The Ghee opened a week early this season and is already 100% open.  Old-timers have called this the best early base in over 35 years.  The early wet storms have provided mid-season coverage.

With cats rolling it was time to sample the early seasons treats.  The stoke level was an all-time high as we were greeted with 2000 foot shots of silky smooth plower pow in the shadow of the Grand Teton.

Skiing at the Ghee is a soulful experience and one of friendliest you’ll find. This past weekend I was lucky enough to stay slope-side. What a deluxe and unique experience to wake up and have everything right out your front door. You don’t have to drive – simply go to Snorkles for a great breakfast and coffee. Bam you’re on the lift for some freshies! Stop by the Trap bar after skiing for a brew, good food and live music. Next…take a soak and rest up for more pow.
