The quiet side of the Tetons is known for two things: more snow than Jackson Hole and fewer people. With Stetson-wearing chairlift operators, 2,200 vertical feet of runs, and 500 inches of snow annually, Targhee is the local's choice on a busy powder day. "Skiing inbounds here feels like lift-serviced backcountry," Targhee local and Powder magazine editor Matt Hansen says.
