Accommodations in Jackson are in high demand. So we recommend making reservations as soon as possible. By June, folks from around the world are heading to Grand Teton and Yellowstone National Parks and Jackson is the gateway to those spectacular parks. If you have your own transportation, there are also rooms further south on Broadway (all within three miles of the Center for the Arts) and at Teton Village (10 miles from Jackson).
If you are interested in sharing an accommodation with another conference-goer, use the contact form to add your name to a list. We will forward email addresses to interested folks. Many of the accommodations listed have two double or queen beds, so this is an option for the so-minded. It would be optimum if you indicated what you were looking for in terms of a roommate.
