MAKE YOUR TRAVEL PLANS EARLY! – The special rate of $100/night is only guaranteed through February 24th.

Located in beautiful Jackson, Wyoming, the Snow King Resort is the primary hotel for the 2012 meeting.  Snow King Resort is located at the base of Snow King Mountain.  The Jackson Hole Airport is a convenient ten miles away.  Grand Teton National Park is four miles and Yellowstone National Park is fifty-nine miles from Jackson.  Teton Village and the Jackson Hole Ski Area are located twelve miles from the resort.

The Snow King Resort is a full-service property that was built in 1976 and has been recently renovated.  The Resort presently offers 204 spacious, recently renovated hotel rooms, including 13 suites as well as over fifty one, two, three and four bedroom condominiums.  The Resort is open year-round and offers over 40,000 square feet of conference and convention space.  Complimentary wi-fi throughout the resort is available for our guests.

The special rate of $100/night plus tax is available for conference attendees.  Reservations can be made by calling 1-800-522-KING(5464).  Cost of the room will be charged to the attendees credit card 3 days prior to their arrival date.

This special rate is available to meeting attendees from 3 days before the start of the meeting to 3 days after the meeting is concluded.  While making reservations, tell the resort that you are with the American Fisheries Society.  There are a number of rooms blocked for the meeting; however, Jackson is a very popular tourist destination, and when blocked rooms are gone, you are not guaranteed a room.

If you are planning to come to Jackson early, make sure to book your room reservations well in advance.  From March 22nd to March 25th, Snow King will be hosting the “Snowmobile Hill Climb”.  Every year almost 10,000 spectators come to watch snowmobilers race up 1,500 vertical feet on the steepest slope Snow King Mountain has to offer.  However, not all the contestants make it to the top.  Part of the excitement is seeing vehicles careening back down the mountain.  Be sure to get in on the fun and make your travel plans now!

The weekend prior to the start of the meeting is also the last few days to ski on Snow King Mountain just out the back door of Snow King Resort.  Skiing closes at Snow King Mountain for the winter season on March 26th

Jackson Hole Mountain Resort, the large ski resort that Jackson is famous for, will still be open for skiing during and after the meeting.  A free shuttle service to the Mountain is offered from Snow King Resort.
