Aspen/Snowmass is one of the most accessible Rocky Mountain resorts, with hundreds of nonstop and connecting flights weekly into Aspen, Eagle and Denver airports. Serviced by United and Frontier, the Aspen airport is just three miles from Aspen and six miles from Snowmass Village. Located 70 miles from Aspen and Snowmass Village, flights into Eagle are offered on major airlines, permitting one-stop connections from across the globe. Visitors can also choose to fly into Grand Junction (125 miles from Aspen/Snowmass) and then take ground transportation to reach Aspen/Snowmass. Make sure the fare difference is worth the 220-mile drive (or shuttle ride) from Denver to Aspen, if you choose to fly into Denver International Airport.
Colorado Mountain Express (CME) offers door-to-door airport ground transportation service in the form of shared ride shuttles, charter vans and CME Premier privately-chauffeured vehicles. Aspen/Pitkin County and Eagle County Regional airport shuttles offer schedules that are flight specific while multiple daily shuttles are provided to and from Denver International Airport.
Available at the Aspen Airport, Alamo, Enterprise, Avis, Budget, Hertz and Go Rentals all offer 4x4 and SUV rentals for Aspen’s winter weather. http://www.aspenairport.com/grndtrxprtn_rental_cars.asp
Many lodging properties offer complimentary airport transfers.
Aspen boasts an incredible public transportation system that is efficient and convenient. While most of the lodges and hotels are within walking distance to downtown, you may want to venture beyond the city's borders on a RFTA bus or via local taxi. Transportation to and from the airport is also effortless and affordable via ground shuttles, taxis, limousines and local buses.
The Roaring Fork Transit Authority (RFTA) represents an unparalleled community commitment to public transportation in the Roaring Fork Valley. Today, RFTA provides a wide range of transit services to more than three million annual riders throughout the entire Roaring Fork Valley. RFTA operates free skier shuttles to all of the area ski mountains during the winter.
Local Aspen shuttles operate year-round serving shopping, dining and recreation destinations. Buses to/from Aspen to the Pitkin County Airport are free, as are The Village Shuttles in Snowmass Village.
