Default Preseason suggestions in the Jackson Hole/Grand Targhee area?

Deciding to jump in my car and camp two nights somewhere around Jackson Hole... Grand Targhee looks pretty decent right now. Don't have backcountry gear so just looking for something mellow in that area or a good spot to build a jump and enjoy the scenery.

Any suggestions on a camp site area or hiking access this time of year would be appreciated. Thanks

Teton Pass, right at the top i'm sure there will by people making tracks, jumps etc..several big faces within a 10-20 minute hike

i used to tent and carcamp right on the edge of the Targhee parking lot, i doubt anyone would bother you

yep...from there you'll see the start of the path those ppl are on in my pic above,or if you cross the road behind those cars you'll see the posthole path that takes you up that face you see at upper right..(so sad, i 'can remember thae name name of the run, uggh) a bit hard with words, but when you get there it's obvious, and i would think there will be others doing the same as you...if it is clear you see from anywhere up there some amzing views all directions

is Targhee open already? still the deepest snow i've ever ridden in my life was at targhee, snorkel deep, but i had no snorkel, lol

No they can't open til the 22nd because they are on national forest land.. but they usually have a ski free day from what we were told on the 22nd.

some drive-in -and-camp spots come to mind..north out of Wilson (at the bottom of the pass) is Fish Creek rd, go out there and find a spot...and going out of jackson east is Cache creek rd, ends in a parking lot...north of jackson too is the Gros Vente forest service campground, not sure it would be open still though

Driggs is cool to hang out for beers and pizza and alll that, might even find someone to let you crash, or camp or whatever

hope to see some pics! bon voyage
