Colorado Ski Transportation
Your options when choosing how to get up to Vail, Beaver Creek, Breckenridge, Keystone, fall into a few different options:
1) Shared Ride Shuttles: These are the most economical way to get up to the resorts for 1 or 2 passengers. It's a bit inconvenient waiting for others at the airport, stopping at the other hotels/ so expect a longer travel time with this option. Also, be aware of any type of transfer if you're happening to be going to Copper Mountain, or somewhere not normally serviced.
2) Rent a Car: Pretty self-explanatory. I'd just like to mention that sometimes the rates for a rental from DIA can be outrageous! I've heard horror stories of people spending 2-300 a day for a small SUV. Also, factor in the parking rates at some of the resorts can range 25-60 per day. Kind of a waste if your vehicle is sitting in a garage, while you are out on the slopes!
Also, not to scare people off, but the mountain passes can be extremely dangerous with weather. If you're not used to driving in adverse weather conditions, I'd highly advise against this option. (There are more nice days than not in Colorado, but you just never know!)
3) Private Car Service: This is our thing. We specialize in driving folks up to the ski resorts in big ol' comfy SUV's and we price to be competitive with the shuttles (3 or more passengers). There are companies that charge double for the same service. Not us. We're happy to stay busy and feel like we earned an honest living at the end of the day.
