From what I recall about our trip to JH/targhee a couple years back, whether or not you're getting the cold smoke you'll want to spend some quality time at this place
 
 
It was a quality little place, with good beer, and we had a great time getting wasted there on the way back from Grand Targhee.  It's on the road from driggs (I assume!) to JHMR

Hate to break it to you but there are still assholes in the Driggs area... Very prominent Mormon area and the fuzz keep their eye out for those who aren't their own.  As long as you keep your nose clean you won't have any issues but you will probably be harassed at some point.  If you are planning on working for the mtn I'd get ahold of them and see what all is left as far as employee housing goes.
MOAR powderz plz!

^^^Mormons aren't polygomists but still funny.
maybe there is a sect of the FLDS faith in driggs?? There is a difference between FLDS and LDS.  LDS is Mormon and FLDS just calls themselves mormon.  Hence why everyone thinks all mormons have multiple wives.  None do.

No doubt, but he's right.

On the flipside, it seems like a majority of the Mormon girls are blue eyed, blond hair and very, very pretty.  It also seems that the majority of them at some point in their 20's have to see how the other half lives and seriously sexually popular woman it up.  Talk about easy pickings and a not strings attached relationship.  Shooting fish in a barrel...

and I quote.

Polygamy (called plural marriage by Mormons in the 19th century or the Principle by modern fundamentalist practitioners of polygamy) was taught by leaders of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints (LDS Church) for more than half of the 19th century,[1] and practiced publicly from 1852 to 1890

Not saying they all are or even a large percent are...but some..which is enough for me. I mean hell, they even have an awesome beer poking fun at it.

rzero... there are no members of the church of Jesus Christ of Latter day saints that practice polygamy.  There were splinter groups that broke off from the church after it stopped the practice that do... they do not follow the doctrine of marriage taught by the lds church, or have the same beliefs. 
 
 
o.p. welcome to driggs..............although I would rather have you move to colorado or utah ;)
 
 
edit: I make some crappy little edits with mediocre snowboarding... you missed one hell of a year last year. Targhee is building a terrain park again.... so stoked. anywho, here are a couple...

Meh, I see it now.  That seemed like such a random response.  I guess I was too transfixed on checking out his videos than reading every line item there.
