Q: When should I book my flight? Where is the nearest airport? Will I need a car?
A: We recommend waiting until 6 weeks out from the workshop start date in case the workshop is canceled due to insufficient enrollment. We will notify all students in a workshop once sufficient enrollment has been so that you may begin to book your flight at the earliest possible date.
The closest airport to Cullowhee is the Asheville airport, 45 miles east. There are two other airports to consider: Knoxville - 120 miles, drive time approximately 2 hours. Greenville/Spartanburg (SC) - 119 miles, drive time approximately 2 hours.
