Grand Targhee offers free skiing

ALTA, Wyo. - Grand Targhee Resort, located in Teton Valley, Wyo., and owned by the Gillett family of Vail, has been blessed with more than 11 1/2 feet of snowfall to date.

Given that La Nina and this winter have not been as generous with some other regions, Targhee is offering a "ski free" program to skiers who have bought season passes to any U.S. or Canadian ski resort for the 2012 season. The offer is good for any skier who books three nights or more lodging through Grand Targhee's website or central reservations.

"We respect how precious skiing and riding is to the die-hard winter enthusiasts who commit to season pass purchases," said Ken Rider, director of marketing and sales for Grand Targhee Resort. "Weather is fickle and we realize that every resort is but one big dump away from the record conditions we all enjoyed last season. For now, we have gotten loads of snow and we want to reach out and use this early season to introduce skiers who love powder to the 2,602 acres available at the 'Ghee."

The offer is good for any 2012 season passholder from any U.S. or Canadian resort. The offer is good for free skiing for one day for each night the skier books in Grand Targhee's properties.

Vail-based Booth Creek Ski Holdings bought the resort in 1997, and in 2000, Booth Creek's CEO, George Gillett, bought the resort with his family.
