Dirty Thirty: Grand Targhee celebrates 30 years of snowboarding

ALTA, WY— Grand Targhee Resort turned 50 this winter, but snowboarders had to wait another 20 years before they were able to enjoy the ‘Ghee’s glory. So to celebrate the 30th anniversary of snowboarding, Targhee is throwing a snowboard reunion weekend full of competitions, demos, parties and more all weekend long.

Join in celebrating the “birth of snowboarding at Grand Targhee” with guests of honor Mark Austin and Barry Olsen, former snowboard instructors who pioneered Targhee’s snowboard program in 1988.

Events include a Quarter Pipe Jam Session next to the Trap Bar Deck, a Shred Show at Habitat to showcase favorite boards, an Instagram photo challenge with big prizes, demos, and more. Check out the event page for a full schedule of events for the weekend and details on the Instagram Photo Challenge.


A sneak peek at Instagram photo challenge prizes: swag, entrance into the Teton Surf Classic, Grand Targhee Resort lift tickets, and a Kemper Snowboard grand prize.

So here’s to you, snowboarders. Come celebrate a whole history at Grand Targhee.
