  • Departure: An AWLS shuttle will return airline passengers only to the airport on the morning of Day 8. Please schedule your flight based upon a 9 a.m. departure from AWLS. The AWLS campus is about an hour from the Jackson Airport, so take that into consideration.
  • Hub Cities: Flights to hub cities in the area (such as Salt Lake City, UT; Billings, MT; Idaho Falls, ID) are sometimes less expensive. Salt Lake City and Idaho Falls have shuttle service to Jackson.
  • Driving: If you are driving to AWLS, please schedule your arrival between 1:00 and 5:00 p.m. on Day 1 of the workshop.
