I am arriving on Sept. 1 at 8:30 and going to the Teton Science School. Anyone else arriving then and want to share a taxi?

Deborah Dorosin Aug 29, 2015 at 08:03 PM

Debbie Dorosin & Ike Silberman=coming a day early-the 31st evening and staying at the inn, if anon lease is there than.

Patricia Rasmussen Aug 28, 2015 at 10:15 PM

Got the letter from leader, packing. Do we really need and dress up clothes and shoes?
Antje Mann Aug 29, 2015 at 02:53 PM

that's not the way I understand it. It's casual all the way.
Judy Bloore Aug 29, 2015 at 06:48 PM

Yes, it is casual. I wore jeans and long sleeve t-shirt during evenings. Tennis shoes. A few people did put on skirts.

Staying at Inn. From airport upon arrival, do we go directly to Inn, then Teton Inst-- or to Institute first, then to Inn, then back to Institute for dinner, etc?
Judy Bloore Aug 28, 2015 at 11:37 AM

They picked us up at airport. They had two different shuttles, one to campus and one to inn. I was at the school, but I think you get checked into inn and they shuttle you back to school for dinner and evening. Dinner at 6pm, so shuttle alittle after 5? I think it was about a 15-20 min. shuttle ride.

Judy Bloore Aug 27, 2015 at 06:42 PM

Fantastic trip! Suggest:
medium weight parka with hood; top of mountain breezy and cold.
Take extra socks to wear as slippers for restroom at night at school (concrete floor is cold). Take only one water bottle, they supply a second. Never get wet on canoe or raft trip so you can skip water shoes, tennis shoes better. Any other questions???

How long were you up on the mountain? Just a few hours?
Judy Bloore Aug 27, 2015 at 09:46 PM

It's an all day trip. You eat lunch 1/2 way through your hike and that helps break up the hike. If you are in the advanced group, expect a 6 mile hike. It is at 10,000 feet with many up and down parts. The middle hike is just over 2 miles and not as rough. I thought I was in good shape but the long hike took its toll on me. Our weather was beautiful and after an hour my long sleeve top was all I needed; but needed the sweatshirt hoodie the first hour.

does the road scholar program have binocluars or eye glasses they let you use for viewing if not what is the best to bring?
Judy Bloore Aug 27, 2015 at 06:35 PM

The leaders have extra binoculars for all to use.

Enrolled in Get-Together in Tetons on 9/2. Anyone staying at The Inn at Jackson Hole? I am arriving a day early, from Florida, to get used to the altitude.
Richard Rasmussen Aug 13, 2015 at 06:53 PM

We are see you there Rick and Patty
Faith Winow Aug 14, 2015 at 07:25 AM

I'm staying at the Inn as well.
Mary-June Fox Aug 30, 2015 at 10:22 AM

I will be staying at the inn and arriving about 130pm on day 1. I am a bit concerned about high altitude hiking.
Mary-June Fox Aug 30, 2015 at 10:25 AM

I am on Facebook, you want to check out my photography. I am really on this trip for the views and will be on the slower hike group.

Does the Teton Science school provide sheets and towels?
Harriet Swanson Aug 13, 2015 at 06:59 PM

Tanya Alexander at Teton Science School emailed the following to me, and I am sharing with fellow travelers. linens are provided at the Teton Science Schools campus (linens on the beds, a towel set (bath towel, hand towel, and washcloth) for each participant upon your arrival. We will provide a towel change mid-way through the program. We also provide soap bars and a cup for each participant; we do not provide shampoo or conditioner. Any participants staying at the Inn will have linens as well, with typical hotel amenities. As for clothing, I would recommend bringing versatile clothing that you can wear in layers. This time of year the high temperatures are often in the 70s. However, we are at over 6,000 feet elevation, so the evening temperatures are typically in the 40s and sometimes drop below freezing. It is important to bring a warm sweater or fleece to wear in the mornings or evenings. I usually pack two warm layers that can be worn with multiple outfits, and bring a backpack so that I can pack them away in the middle of the day when it is warmer.
