Flights to the area--options for airports?

Hello all,

We are planning a trip from NC to Jackson area in August. The flights are extremely expensive and I was wondering if there are other airport options within 4 hours or so? We will be renting a car, so a drive from a less expensive airport would be worth the trouble. Thanks for any help! Happy travels!

Salt Lake City and Bozeman are each about 5 hours from Jackson. Idaho Falls is 90 minutes.

If me I would opt for SLC. Not a bad drive at all and very pretty in the Salt River Valley stretch up to Alpine. Or head up freeway towards Idaho Falls and then east over Teton Pass. Also a pretty drive on the last stretch. Rental cars will be a lot less at a larger airport too. You say "we" and rental cars don't charge by the person like airlines to that saving multiplys fast for each extra person.

We have always found good airfare to SLC and excellent car rental rates. Coming again in September and will fly into SLC- usually use Southwest or Delta.
