What's The Easiest Way To Get You To Aspen Snowmass? And How Do You Get Around When You Are There?
A combination of regular flights and shuttle buses makes getting to and around Aspen very easy.
Getting to Denver International Airport:
There are few if any direct flights from Europe/U.K. and Asia/Australasia to Denver:
- If you're coming from Europe/UK you'll likely need to go via New York, Washington or Chicago. Talk to your travel agent about options.
- If you’re coming from Asia/Australasia then prepare yourself for the special experience that is entering the US through LAX.
If you've got the time, you might want to try a road trip from either coast -- see a little bit of the states before you start your training.
Getting to Aspen from Denver:
Regular shuttle buses run between Denver and Aspen Snowmass. All shuttles provide comfortable, fast (1.5 - 2 hrs) and convenient service to and from the Denver area. Two options to consider:
- The Colorado Mountain & Resort Express (CME) bus takes you directly from Denver International Airport to Aspen Snowmass (appox $80).
Another option is to spend time in Denver and get acclimatized to the altitude changes. There are regular bus’s from the airport to Denver’s busy and exiting town center, from there the Greyhound runs twice daily trips along the I70.
Aspen offers great public transportation. There is a free shuttle that runs every half an hour between Aspen and Snowmass starting at 6:15am and running until 2:15am.
