Alta, WY – With 39 inches of snow arriving since opening early on Saturday, November 20, Grand Targhee Resort is scheduled to open Sacajawea Chairlift on Friday, November 26.  This will open 100% of the terrain at the resort in time for the weekend.  Grand Targhee Resort has received 112 inches of snow to date.
“We will be the first resort in Wyoming to open 100 percent,” said Shannon Brooks Hamby, communications director.  “This has been one of our best openings on record and our guests have been happily enjoying mid-season conditions during our opening week.”
Lift ticket rates will increase to full price on Friday.  The Papoose Conveyor is scheduled to open for the Thanksgiving holiday and the Branding Iron Grill will serve a traditional turkey or prime rib holiday menu on Thursday from 3:00 to 8:30 pm.
Grand Targhee Snowcat Adventures are taking reservations starting Friday, November 26 (conditions permitting).  Call 307-353-2300 x1355 to book.
Grand Targhee Resort is a year round mountain resort situated on the western slope of the Tetons in Alta, Wyoming, accessible only through Teton Valley, Idaho.   During the winter, our abundance of snow (more than 500 inches annually) and lack of lift lines creates an uncrowded skier and snowboarder paradise, continually recognized for abundant snow, genuine western hospitality, scenic beauty and excellent value.  Tucked among spectacular Teton views and national forest land, Grand Targhee is also an intimate summer getaway for adventure-seekers, with miles of lift-accessed hiking, running and mountain biking trails, renowned music festivals and a variety of activities. A leader in environmental resort practices, Grand Targhee Resort was recently honored with the prestigious 2009 Golden Eagle Award for Environmental Excellence.  For more information, please visit our website at www.grandtarghee.com.
