Planning Your Trip

If you’ve made it to this page, it means you’ve either committed
to attending the SNO Adviser Academy this summer or you’re
seriously considering it. Either way, we’d like to congratulate you on
making an excellent decision!

Now, let’s figure out how to help you get here.

Travel >>

First, an important note about the timing of your arrival: Please take the Monday before your workshop as your travel day. We begin at 9 a.m. the first day, and we’ll be working hard, so plan to arrive in Minneapolis the day before to allow yourself some time to settle in, relax and be a tourist.

If you’re traveling in by air, you should be flying into Minneapolis-St. Paul International Airport. From there, access to ride-sharing services, like Uber and Lyft, are plentiful to get you to your hotel of choice; otherwise, rent a car. It’s about a 20-minute ride, without traffic, to the area we’ll recommend you stay in.

For your departure, it’s up to you how long you’d like to extend your stay. But, for the eager beavers ready to get home, we’ll wrap up by 1:00 p.m. (CDT) on our last day. That leaves you plenty of time to fly out that afternoon or evening.
