If you ever find yourself in Jackson Hole, Make sure you make the trip across the pass for some uncrowded lines at Grand Targhee resort. At some point in your ski bum life you must hike to the summit of Marys Nipple at Grand Targhee Resort and feast your eyes in the Grand Teton and its younger sisters, Mt. Owen, and Middle Teton.
Marys nipple got its name from the resorts original owners and planners! With the Tetons so close, who knows what it could have been called?
The West side of the Nipple offers some great side country access to some of the best powder available in the Northern Rockies.
The slopes are short but incredibly sweet, some shots of up to 1100 vertical can be lapped countless times with a short boot pack to the summit.
Grand Targhee recently added an Avalanche Beacon farm to encourage the safe use of the backcountry accessed in there backyard!
