How to Get Here

Situated in the middle of the country with nonstop service from more than 190 domestic and international destinations, Denver International Airport is a great jumping-off point for visiting other places. Access to mountain resorts and other destinations is easy with shuttle services and buses, and the airport can be reached from downtown Denver via the A Line rail. Colorado also offers 12 regional airports including many near ski-resort destinations.

For alternative travel options, Bustang offers routes across the state’s four corners, including a seasonal Snowstang line connecting to Colorado’s many ski resorts. And if you have time on your hands, Amtrak’s California Zephyr makes multiple stops in Colorado on its cross-country route connecting the western states from Illinois to California.
