Transportation

We will be driving in car caravans to shooting locations.  You may share a rental vehicle with another participant, but no one will be allowed in either of the guides' cars.

 

Housing

We recommended booking a condo at The Aspens. This is where Amy and Melissa will be staying and we will meet here every morning to depart for sunrise.  We stayed here for our scouting trip and found the location and amenities to be ideal.

 

You can coordinate sharing a unit with other workshop participants through the workshop Facebook group.  You will be added to this group when your deposit is paid.    

 

From their website:

 

The Aspens is conveniently located four miles from Teton Village, home to Jackson Hole Mountain Resort, and eight miles from the town of Jackson.

Fully furnished one-, two-, and three-bedroom condos in the Aspens offer fireplaces, full-sized kitchens, private decks or patios, flatscreen tvs, wi-fi, washer/dryer, hairdryers, welcome amenities and more.
