Meals

The hotel has a continental breakfast and we will attend the After Dark event for dinner one night. Otherwise, meals are not provided.

Limited Space

We reserve rooms one year in advance for Simplot. That means we are limited by the number of beds for athletes. Our maximum capacity is 24 athletes and we had 22 last year. If we exceed 24 that are traveling and staying with the team, we will use practice attendance as a means to limit the group to 24. We will make some exceptions for those athletes that live outside the area and can’t attend some practices because of the travel time.
