Grand Targhee Ski & Snowboard Foundation

ABOUT THE FOUNDATION

Another fantastic season of snow sports is in the books, and over here at the Grand Targhee Ski and Snowboard Foundation, we’re so proud of all our athletes and the progression they’ve made.

As some of you will have noticed, we’ve changed our name from the Teton Valley Ski Education Foundation to the Grand Targhee Ski and Snowboard Foundation. This change was a natural progression for our organization as we aligned ourselves further with our key partner, Grand Targhee Resort. The shift in naming brings many opportunities for both parties with further access to resources and a stronger sense of place, whether our athletes are at home or away. We also wanted to make sure all of our athletes and disciplines were represented in our new name. We couldn’t be more thrilled to fly the Grand Targhee flag and look forward to many more years of setting the course for success on the slopes, trails, and in life for all our athletes.

Academy continues to have an amazing season, with many laughs, medals, crashes, and podiums!
