Grand Targhee Resort opened to near record early bounties on Saturday after 89″ dropped from the heavens during October with another 12 anointing the hill during the day.

Conditions were full on – stormy brutality toward the top of each – thankfully speedy – Dreamcatcher hot lap, but that was all forgotten once another 2,000′ of refills were devoured. Since Saturday, La Nina has continued to deliver with another 8″ last night. From the looks of the forecast, it’s going to continue through much of the week.

Think this sounds fun and feel the urge to aim for the Tetons during Thanksgiving? Word is that the ‘ghee is serving an incredible Thanksgiving deal. A pow feast + lodging for $99! Since you need to also eat real food, an actual turkey feast will be sold separately at the Branding Iron Grill. Get more details on Facebook and GrandTarghee.com
