All of the resorts and lodges offer shuttle services to the airport, and some offer a courtesy vehicle in some cases. Otherwise, when planning a visit, plan to bring your own vehicle, or make prior arrangements for some form of transportation. Keep in mind too, that you should have good winter tires if you are planning a winter vacation and watch out for animals on the road in all seasons.
