The Town of Jackson, Grand Teton National Park, Yellowstone, Jackson Hole Mountain Resort and other area landmarks located throughout Teton County are located in the remote Northwest corner of Wyoming. While increasingly visited and internationally sought-after, the destination remains accessible on a smaller-scale. Roads are typically low density, highways are less-prevalent and interstates are further afield. The Jackson Hole Airport (JAC) connects with 13 major US cities and offers excellent service via most major carriers.
With a welcoming spirit of excitement and sharing in this celestial celebration, we politely offer that Eclipse watchers and especially chasers looking for mobility as weather conditions shift, may wish to consider basing from a more connected, less remote location accordingly.
Jackson, Wyoming and surrounding areas offer every accommodation type for travelers and tourists. As a top Wyoming industry, providing safe, effective and friendly tourism accommodations is essential. At this time, there is little to no lodging available in the area.
The popularity of this particular spot, coupled with the demand of a rare celestial event, saw accommodations reach near-capacity over two years ago. We apologize for the inconvenience and hope to offer the following existing lodging resources via The Jackson Hole Chamber of Commerce and the Wyoming Office of Travel and Tourism’s comprehensive Wyoming Eclipse Resource.
Will the airport be open on the day of the Eclipse?
Yes, the Jackson Hole Airport will remain operational during the eclipse for the traveling public.
Can I pay for parking and park to view the Eclipse from Airport Public Parking?
No, parking and terminal access will be restricted to people using the Airport for official business or to pick/up drop off customers for their flights.
Will my flight be impacted by the Eclipse?
The Airport may suspend airside operations for a half hour before totality and a half hour after totality. Impact to departure and arrival times for commercial aircraft should be minimal.
What if traffic congestion causes me to be late for my flight?
The Airport encourages everyone to arrive at the airport 2 hours before their flight time. Due to predicted congestion, we are suggesting visitors and locals to consider allowing additional time to travel to/from the Airport on the day of the Eclipse. Commercial aircraft will not be held for late passengers.
Any impacts if I am flying on a private aircraft?
We do expect a high traffic volume before and after the Eclipse and have limited ramp space. Please contact Jackson Hole Aviation as they have a reservation system in place for this period.
For additional questions, please contact Director of Operations, Dustin Havel by calling (307)-733-7695 or emailing email@example.com
As explained in the Getting Here portion of the site, it is suggested that travelers self-educate about access via roads for best and proper decision making, particularly when planning for unknown factors related to eclipse viewing. The Town of Jackson and Teton County’s roads are more limited than other locations of its popularity scale, yet public transportation via the START Bus offers efficient and comfortable mass transit for locals and visitors. Bus public transport is well complimented by Jackson’s extensive pathway system for biking and walking as an alternative way of getting around the valley.
Along with the START Bus, locals and visitors seeking alternative transportation, particularly during the busy and potentially congested eclipse time, can avoid motor traffic all together using the valley’s extensive pathway network.
A new in-town bike share option coming online in April provides another community option for alternative commuter and visitor travel. Thank you for considering incorporating these public resources when travel planning.
Stretching over 65-miles through Teton County’s Town of Jackson, Grand Teton National Park and all the way out to Teton Village, Wyoming, community pathways offers, a safe, affordable, environmentally sound and less impactful mode of transit.
It is free to park along most public streets within the Town of Jackson limits for up to 72 hours during the summer months, though in certain areas time-restrictions do apply. Parking in the majority of downtown district is limited to three (3) hours on the street in the same location. Parking on public streets (excluding the downtown district) is limited to 72-hours during the summer months.
