Alta Wyoming

Alta Wyoming although in Wyoming is geographically part of Teton Valley Idaho. Teton Valley lies along the eastern border of Idaho, snug against the 13,000' peaks of the Grand Teton range. We share the Tetons with our neighboring valley to the east, Jackson Hole, Wyoming. Folks describe Teton Valley as "the quiet side of the Tetons."

Alta’s Grand Targhee Resort has been called the “friendliest little resort in the West.” The resort may be “little” by Rocky Mountain standards, but its ski area certainly isn’t, nor is the more than 500 inches of snowfall a year here. You can get warmed up on the 2,000 acres of lift-served terrain spread over two mountains. If it’s stunning, untouched landscapes you’re looking for, then take a ride out to 1,000 additional acres for some backcountry cat-skiing. (Heli-skiing, but swap the helicopter for a Snowcat.) Grand Targhee Snowcat Adventures runs half- and full-day outings into pristine snowfields, north-facing bowls and steep rollovers, with 10 to 12 runs (14,000 to 20,000 vertical feet) on a full day.
