If you go to Idaho

Where to stay and eat

If you’re looking to tune up your ski legs before heading into the backcountry, spend a few days getting used to the altitude and snow conditions by staying and playing at Grand Targhee Resort. If you’re heading straight into the backcountry, try the Pines Motel or the Teton Springs Lodge. There is also an oversupply of rental cabins, condos, and houses that often offer more bang for the buck. Chow down before your trip and celebrate afterward at one of the local favorites: Forage Bistro, The Royal Wolf, or Teton Thai.

What to do

Because of the risks inherent to the backcountry, skiers new to touring will set themselves up for success by hiring a Rendezvous Backcountry Tours guide. If it’s your first time skiing in the Tetons, spend a day with an avalanche instructor learning about local snow conditions through Rendezvous or the American Avalanche Institute. www.jhav
alanche.org
is the go-to site for twice-a-day avalanche information and weather forecasts. Buy supplies at any of three stores in Driggs: Yostmark, Habitat, or Peaked Sports.
