Tucked away in a cozy Corner of Colorado’s Rocky Mountain, lies Beaver Creek, Colorado. Getting to Beaver Creek is half the fun. There are many options for accessing this unique mountain community. By far the most popular is to fly into the Denver International Airport and take a shuttle or rent a car. Shuttles allow for a more relaxing experience because you aren’t faced with the task of driving in Colorado’s rugged mountains. Sit back and relax as your designated shuttle driver escorts you from either the Denver International Airport or the Vail Eagle Airport.
Here are some tips for planning your ground transportation from Denver to the Vail Valley.
1) Book your shuttles or ground transportation online in advance
If you book your shuttles online in advance you will save money. Many shuttle and transportation operators have online bookings that allow for you to plan your dates, times and flight itinerary for your shuttle.
2) Bigger Groups Save on Shuttle Transfers
The more people you have will allow you to receive discounts on group transportation options. Typically, the group rates start at 4+ people. Sometimes you can save up to 20% off the cost of your transportation
3) Departure and Arrival Times
It is very important to book the correct times for your shuttle. Travel time between Denver Airport and Beaver Creek is 2.5 hours. Make sure you have enough time to check in at the airport and aren’t left staying the night in Denver unintentionally.
4) Weather and Road Condition
If you see or hear of a big storm coming into the Colorado Rocky Mountains, you might want to adjust your shuttle times to accommodate the slow driving on the interstate as a result of inclement weather. Bad weather can double the time it takes and possibly close the interstate all together.
