“Here is your country. Cherish these natural wonders, cherish the natural resources, cherish the history and romance as a sacred heritage, for your children and your children’s children. Do not let selfish men or greedy interests skin your country of its beauty, its riches or its romance.”

-Theodore Roosevelt

 

Our Stance

We Want Grand Targhee Resort to be
Successful and Financially Viable.

GTR provides a family- friendly and intimate atmosphere that has vanished at the majority of today’s “mega” resorts. We cherish the rural, small-town feel and unique character of Teton Valley. The communities of Alta, Driggs, Tetonia and Victor all benefit from our “local” ski resort. Many folks moved here to escape cities or fled other ski towns that fell victim to the damage caused by industrial tourism or out of control real estate development.

Because of previous approvals, there will be more retail, hotel rooms, and condominiums at Grand Targhee. The Peaked Lift was approved years ago. Many lift improvements, ski runs, snowmaking and restaurants are proposed in current master development plan for which the United States Forest Service (USFS) is required by the National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA) law to solicit public input. Alternative plans for future development will be created via an Environmental Impact Statement. There are many opportunities for Grand Targhee Resort to expand within their present boundaries.

We hope you will get engaged in this process.
