Report from Monday December 28th, 2020
It’s been several days of super fun skiing at Grand Targhee Resort.
According to Targhee’s numbers, 17″ have collected atop the slopes in the last 3 days. For the droves of holidaymakers visiting the area, that fresh-fall arrived just in time to make the season that much more ‘merry.’
Though Grand Targhee does still advise of existent early-season conditions, the occasional rocky patch or thin-cover of opening days are all but gone. Main facets to keep an eye for: earthworks that form the edge of cat tracks or any natural, large rock feature. Aside from that, it’s all good.
With the cloud cover gone (for the moment) overnights have been cold so the surface layer of the snowpack has been kept light and dry. As of yesterday, Monday, Southerly as well North-facing slopes were skiing equally well. And even the mogul mania of a well-skied face still features pushed snow that was more than workable with a confidently applied edge.
And despite the higher volume of skier traffic, conditions at the outer edges of Grand Targhee Resort are rip-able, as are the lines through the trees. And, thanks to the recent snow, iconic peak Mary’s Nipple is turned-on and getting a tickle-or-two.
Forecast models for the up-coming weekend also look promising at present (so fingers X’d there). Meanwhile, I advise we all keep skiing.
And again–as always–much appreciation to the hardworking staff of Grand Targhee Resort who continue to operate under their Winter Plan so that we can have our winter fun in the stunning Teton Mountains. Cheers!
