Grand Targhee Resort is the first ski resort in the United States to embrace and endorse fat bikes aka snow biking on our Nordic trail system. Bikers who purchase a Nordic ticket for $10 per day or a Nordic season pass for $120 will have access to the Grand Targhee Resort Nordic Trail System.

The fat 'snow' bike was created to go where standard “all terrain” bikes flounder. The floatation and traction afforded by large-volume, low-pressure tires can get you over and through otherwise unrideable terrain…sand, mud, wet rocks and roots, ice and many kinds of snow. The fat bike is purpose built for snow and sand with wide, high flotation tires that enable travel on a variety of low pressure surfaces. Huge tires make for a comfy ride and distribute weight for float and traction in the snow.

We know it’s only September, but Montana, Wyoming, and even parts of Colorado were blessed with some pretty significant snowfall. Some of us just couldn’t resist the itch, and dusted off our skis and boots to take them out for their first walks of the season. Well, we all know that with early season skiing comes some serious spraying, so here are a handful of the best captures we found on the ol’

It’s no surprise that TGR world premiere weekends are always a blast. More than just a movie premiere, this year’s event, yet again, acted as a chance to gather all those in the greater Jackson Hole community together and celebrate a love for all things snow. Mother Nature was certainly listening, as the forecast called for snow on Saturday evening, and it sure delivered.  The jackets came out, the beanies were put on, and as guests lined up outside Walk Festival Hall at Jackson Hole
