Grand Targhee Resort Offers Free Skiing to All North America’s Season Passholders
Offer to skiers to come enjoy early season powder and close-in lodging package
(Alta, WY – Jan. 6, 2012) -- Grand Targhee Resort, located in Teton Valley, Wyoming on the back-side of Jackson Hole, has been blessed with more than eleven and a half feet of snowfall to date. These 142 inches of early-season snowfall has given the resort a 47 inch powder and packed powder base with more snow in the forecast. Given that La Niña 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 this 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 & 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. All three mountains, Fred’s, Peaked and Mary’s are open with 100 percent of our terrain. We think it’s a good time to plan a ‘break away’ to Grand Targhee for a long weekend or full week of skiing.”
The offer is good for any season passholder from any U.S. or Canadian resort that holds a valid 2012 season pass. The offer is good for free skiing for one day for each night the skier books in Grand Targhee’s properties. Some 150 properties are available for booking and guests utilizing this offer must stay a minimum of three nights. Offer is good while lodging availability lasts. Lodging rates range from $98 per night to $599 per night. Currently, adult daily lift tickets are $69.
“We are all skiers and riders,” Rider said. “Obviously we want every resort in the world to be blessed with ample snow. As long as Targhee is blessed this year, we want to share it with everyone who can make it up here. The conditions are incredible and offer a variety for all levels of skiers and riders—from powder, steeps and cliffs to nice long groomers.”

This is a solid deal.
I'm trying to convince a friend to let us borrow his car for a couple days and head up to Jackson on the 11th. Either drop the cash on a room at the resort, and get tickets free, or spend $53 on liftopia and crash on a buddies floor for free. Thinking the second would be a better/cheaper option.
