No terrain park, but powder as far as the eye can see.
We were a little surprised not to find terrain park for freestylers and snowboarders at Grand Targhee. Snowboarding has become so popular in the US that practically every resort has installed at least a few kickers or a halfpipe. Grand Targhee explanation: „Our terrain is so diverse, you’ll find plenty of natural snowboard terrain parks spread out all over the entire area.“ We set out to verify the veracity of the claim, and found quite a bit of proof in Chief Joseph Bowl in the form of numerous natural jumps and extremely challenging powder runs. And if that’s not rough enough, you’re sure to get your adrenaline rush on Bobcat, Reliable or Das Boat (Caution: a 3m high rock patch runs through the middle of these trails). Breathtaking powder runs can be found all over the entire ski area. Since Grand Targhee receives an incredible 43 feet (13m) of precipitation in the form of light as air, dryer than dust snow a year, the most of any ski area in the US, this resort in western Wyoming is practically the ideal spot for freeriders. Freestylers with higher expectations, however, are going to miss their halfpipes and kickers.
