The conference hotel is the historic Wort Hotel.

Getting There & Away:

  • Jackson Hole Airport (JAC) + taxi or shuttle via Jackson Hole Shuttle
  • Idaho Falls Airport (IDA) + beautiful 1 hr 45 min. drive to Jackson Hole OR shuttle via Salt Lake Express (please note shuttle route times before booking your flights)
  • Salt Lake City Airport (SLC) + beautiful 4.5 hour drive to Jackson Hole OR bus/shuttle from SLC via Mountain States Express, Salt Lake Express, or Greyhound. Please budget time appropriately if you decide to take a shuttle or bus from SLC as there may be a limited number of routes each day or a number of stops along the route.
  • Denver Airport (DIA) + short flight to Jackson Hole (a number of carriers run these local flights; Frontier is usually the cheapest) OR a 2.5-hour GreenRide shuttle to Laramie and then sorting out a shared ride from Laramie to Jackson via the conference organizers; do get in touch if you’re looking to pursue the latter option.

*Please note: it is well worth booking a rental car for this trip, especially if you want to visit the parks. If you would like to share a rental car, please post on the ACIS Facebook page or contact the conference organizers to be put in touch with others who are hoping to do the same.
