The discounts available are up to 10% within North America, and up to 6% for those coming from outside North America. Flights from Japan may be discounted up to 30%.

An additional 5% discount is offered on flights within North America for tickets booked 60 days in advance or more (i.e. before about April 11th)

Please be advised that although the conference itself does not include a Saturday night, staying over a Saturday night may dramatically reduce airfares.

For those using a travel agent, they should be advised that the meeting identifier code MUST appear in the "tour code" box on all tickets issued in conjunction with ICOLS. Contact the Delta Meeting Network for more details.

4b. Airport Transportation

Transportation between SLC airport and Snowbird is arranged through Snowbird Central Reservations, with a company called Canyon Transport. The shuttles are pre-scheduled (you make a reservation, give them your flight arrival and departure times, etc.) and the regular summer hours are 8AM-10PM from SLC airport, and 6AM-7PM from Snowbird. During these hours the price is $20 per person. Outside of these hours, they have a 3 person minimum price ($60 for up to 3 people).

5. Meals

See the Snowbird web pages for details on their many restaurants, cafes, and other eateries. Conference participants and accompanying guests are expected to make their own arrangements. There will be a conference banquet Thursday evening, June 14, 2001 ($40/person).
 

6. Social program

See the Snowbird web pages for: Summer Activies, such as hiking, shopping, etc.

We will have a mixture of scheduled events for ICOLS participants and non-participants. The Monday and Tuesday events are intended only for non-participants, since they overlap with talks during conference sessions. Payment for tours and excursions will be billed to your room at hotel check-in. Register for any of these events through the ICOLS Registration form. Please sign up at least 2 weeks in advance if possible (i.e., by May 25, 2001), since the number of on-site excursion registrations may be limited. Contact ICOLS-secretariat@forsythe.stanford.edu to make changes or cancellations

Daily bus transportation into Salt Lake City is also available through Snowbird.
