Salt Lake City International Airport (SLC)
If you are flying in for the retreat, the nearest airport is the Salt Lake City International Airport (SLC). The airport is 44 miles from the retreat venue, 2620 E. Lake Creek Road (or Center Street), Heber City, Utah 84032. Please make sure you've joined the Writing Away Refuge private Facebook group for conference attendees so you can arrange to ride share together to the conference venue through Uber or Lyft. Uber or Lyft for an individual to the venue will cost around $75, so ride-sharing with fellow attendees will be the most cost-effective option.
Other Lodging Options:
If you choose to attend Writing Away Refuge, but not lodge with us, there are hotels in the Heber City area (ex: Holiday Inn Express, Best Western, etc.), and the average rate for these hotels are around $150 per night plus taxes. Do keep in mind that you would need transportation to the retreat each day as well. You will find it a much better deal to lodge with us with all meals and accommodations provided.
Alternate travel options from SLC to retreat venue
If you prefer not to travel by Uber or Lyft, a taxi ride from the airport to the retreat house will take around 46 minutes and will cost around $110. Arranging to share a taxi with a fellow attendee is another good option.
We will help you arrange an Uber to the airport on departure day and ride-share with others to make your travel as inexpensive as possible.
Please contact retreat staff if you have any questions about transportation:
