Plus Teton Pass can be quite the experience. My old shitbox that I owned in the US had brakes that were prone to overheating and the pass provided a little bit of puckering.Grand Farghee is small. It is great skiing, but limited terrain and a very limited village. I have day tripped there 3 times and I only saw it the 3rd time (hence the Grand Farghee nickname).
I would ask them one question. Are you on the Teton Village resort shuttle route (or are you on the START bus route)?
^^ This. I would however say flying into Jackson Hole there is a smaller plane and postal will take preference over your ski bags.... you may be without them for a bit. Often they will truck them to you...next morning delivery or if they end up in the system it could take a few days.My preference is to fly into Jackson Hole airport. Stay in Teton Village - there is a inexpensive bus to town so no need for a car. Eating out is cheap in town but not in the village so a kitchen or kitchenette is beneficial. If staying in Teton Village is out of your budget (there used to be some great cheaper units but they have just about all been knocked down and replaced with expensive 5 star options) it is actually the down season in the town of Jackson in winter so you can negotiate good rates for accommodation.
I always get a couple of quotes from providers like Skimax and TravelPlan when planning trips to more well known resorts as they sometimes have access to accommodation and lift pass deals which you cannot get yourself. Then do lots of research and compare.
In this case, "small" can be a good thing. Takes very little time to figure out where to go at Targhee, especially in comparison to JH. But definitely better to go the first time when the sun is shining. Very few areas with trees to provide guidance. But a day or two after a powder storm, the place is magical. Ride to the top of one of the the three lifts, then point the skis down. The green trail from the top of Dreamcatcher has wonderful views for advanced beginners. That high-speed lift from the base feels like it accesses 50% of the terrain, both groomed trails and hundreds of acres of ungroomed open bowl skiing. The separate area set up for kids and beginners is good fun as well, complete with glades and other features besides groomed trails.Grand Farghee is small.

well thats a shame.Thanks to this bloody virus we decided to don't go anywhere , way to risky .
"If you don't do it this year you'll be an year older when you do" (Warren Miller)
Oh well ! Not a big deal
We live in Melbourne. The worry is being caught up on a plane or airport area where somebody is found positive and you are not allowed to leave even just for precaution .
Even though the risk but be quite low , ask those people on the Jetstar flight :
Tigerair is contacting hundreds of passengers from 13 different flights after two people who travelled on the same plane tested positive to coronavirus.
The airline pulled the plane from service on Thursday after Queensland Health alerted it to a positive case of coronavirus on board.
What are the signs and symptoms of coronavirus and how is it spread?
As the number of confirmed cases of deadly coronavirus in Australia continues to grow, experts are beginning to get a greater understanding of the disease and its impact.
Two people with the virus are in isolation in the Gold Coast University Hospital.
If we had already paid we would probably go but , I didn't so ....can go next year .
Yep I did a season in the US just after 9/11, figured with all the extra security it would be as safe as you could get. Plus I was living at an Olympic venue, the security was off the charts, the metal detectors for the games were dialled up so high that they were tripped off by the metal in CG’s bra.seriously!??
I think you have less than ice of catching 'it' in a ski resort in Nth America than you do in Aus.
Reminds me of me moving to a ski resort shortly after 9/11. People told my parents to stop me (yeah right I was an adult!) And thankfully my mum said "she is an adult we can't stop her, but we think she is safer in a remote mountain in American that an office job in Syd"
