Before we get into specifics… be sure the check out The National Park Service’s “Planning Your Trip” information. It’s packed with useful tips.
If you plan to fly Jackson Hole Airport is by far your best option. It’s only a 15 minute drive into town and there are several rental car services on site. If you book soon, you shouldn’t have trouble flying here.If you can’t do Jackson Hole, you can try Idaho Falls Regional Airport. It’s just under a 2 hour drive to Jackson and you have car rental options there as well.
Driving is a little trickier, since no interstates go through Jackson.
If you’re driving from the west coast, you’ll want to take I-80 or I-84 going east. You’ll then connect with I-15, heading north to I-80 E. Take UT-16 N, U.S. 30 W and US-89 N to N Cache St in Jackson.
There are two general routes you can take from the eastern U.S., depending on where you start from.You can take I-90 west to Route 89. Take 89 south, to 287, right through Yellowstone National Park. Be warned that this will take some time, since traffic through the park can be slow as people watch the wildlife. From 287 take the 26 south to Jackson. You can also take I-80 west to US-191 N. This will take you to N Cache St in Jackson.
We recommend staying in Jackson Hole. There's plenty of lodging throughout the valley, up at Teton Village, and in the town of Jackson. You can review our race day shuttle and parking plan here, if you like to plan around that.
