JACKSON, Wyo. — Grand Targhee Resort in northwest Wyoming is proposing an expansion that would increase its skiable acreage by 50% but retain its low-key atmosphere.
Owner and General Manager Geordie Gillett told the Jackson Hole News & Guide that the U.S. Forest Service recently received the resort's 147-page master plan for consideration.
The plan proposes new chairlifts, new restaurants, more snowmaking, a zip line, an aerial adventure course and more.
Gillett says he's aware the expansion plans raise concerns but he says the resort has no intention of ruining the low-key experience it provides customers.
