Shuttles:

AllTrans, Inc. 307-733-3135 / 800-443-6133  jacksonholealltrans.com.

Shuttle Rates Per Person: To Jackson – $16 one way or $31 round Trip.  The Shuttle is a shared ride to various area hotels and destinations, and meets all incoming and departing flights.  Must be reserved at least 24 hrs in advance.  This shuttle does not drive to GTNP and the Climber’s Ranch, but can get you to town.

Rental Cars:

If you would like to rent a car, most major rental agencies are available in Jackson or the Jackson Hole Airport.  While it is easy to get around town without a vehicle, a rental car is convenient for getting out into the National Park.  Please carpool!  We will send out an email list of participants before the course to help you coordinate travel schedules and carpooling.  The GTCR is located about 40 mins north of the town of Jackson.  The Jackson Hole Airport is about halfway between the town and the National Park.

Where to Stay:

We will be staying at the American Alpine Club Climber’s Ranch in Grand Teton National Park. The Climber’s Ranch is located 4 mi inside the Park beyond the Moose park Entrance, and about 40 min driving time north of Jackson.  For more information about the GTCR, check out these links:

The Climber’s Ranch has shared cabins with wooden bunks.  It’s communal style, rustic lodging in a beautiful setting.  There are nice outdoor spaces with picnic tables, an indoor library, and shared cooking and bathroom facilities.  We will start and end our clinic there.

Other Lodging options:

If you spend more time in the area, we highly recommend the Alpine House Lodge in the town of Jackson.  The Alpine House has beautiful comfy accommodations, including a little spa, a bar with regional wine and beers, and a famous chef-prepared breakfast every morning.

Teton Village, the Jackson Hole Mountain Resort, and more…

If you would like to extend your stay and enjoy more of the area, visit downtown Jackson with it’s well-known Western flair, shops, and restaurants.  The Snake River is popular for whitewater rafting and fishing.  The Jackson Hole Mountain Resort above Teton Village is a great option for hiking and sight-seeing with its aerial Tram.  A short drive to the north lies Yellowstone National Park with amazing geysers, wildlife, beautiful hiking, and fascinating geological history.  In addition, there is endless opportunity for backcountry experiences in the GTNP, including rock climbing and technical ascents beyond the heart of the Tetons.  Jackson Hole Mountain Guides are a great resource for adventures in the park.
