Keystone Shuttle Service & Mountain Transportation
Colorado Mountain Express
Shuttle rides through CME can be booked on a per/person basis or you can opt to reserve a private shuttle from Denver to Keystone exclusively for your travel party. Door-to-door services and point-to-point services are both available. If you use the link below you will receive a 10% discount on any door-to-door reservation you make. Point-to-point services cannot be discounted by the Colorado Ski Authority.
The Powderhound Transportation company allows travelers to reserve private shuttles to Keystone Ski Resort. Keystone shuttle service is provided from the Denver and Eagle/Vail airports. All skier shuttles are reserved privately on your own schedule – this is more convenient than any of the shared-ride shuttle options that are available.
Vail Limo Services
Vail Limo Service is a private shuttle company, servicing all parts of Colorado with SUVs, traditional shuttle vans, Sprinters, SUV Limos, and Limo Buses. They will take you to Keystone from DIA or Eagle/Vail airport to your destination and back again. And it is all completely private. No shared rides. No stopping for other people. This is the luxury you have been waiting for, but didn’t know where to find.

This is a free bus shuttle service that runs throughout the Summit County area. This free bus service brings skiers to/from Keystone, Arapahoe Basin, Copper Mountain, Breckenridge. The Summit Stage also has bus stops in many of the residential neighborhoods around the Keystone Ski Resort. There are hundreds of bus stops throughout Summit County.
Keystone Travel Directions
If you are arriving by plane you will likely fly into the Denver International Airport. This is Colorado’s largest and busiest airport, and the drive to/from Keystone usually takes about 1.5 hours in the winter.
Denver to Keystone Road Travel
Once you are in Denver, you will have the option of taking a shuttle from Denver to Keystone Resort. There are several shuttle services between the Denver airport and Summit County that we have listed above. Many choose to rent a car, for all of the obvious and predictable reasons. If you choose this option, know that the roads are all paved and safe. When the weather gets bad, just go slower. You will not get there any faster if you are dead, to steal a quote from my grandma.
And whether or not you take a shuttle or rent a car, you need to be aware of the travel conditions on I-70, as they can be pretty rugged with traffic. So first check the highway cams to make sure there isn’t tons of traffic, a rockslide, or something else that would trap you on the the interstate for, like, ever: I-70 Highway Cams. Then you’ll also want to check the road conditions with CDOT. The mountaincams are great to get a real time view of conditions, but CDOT will let you know what is going on with the whole channel, well beyond where these cams are posted. Believe us, every Denver skier–of which there are many–are constantly checking these two sites because traffic can be so tricky with no ways out at certain bottlenecks.
When you leave Denver, you will climb up the continental divide as you get ascend into the foothills of the Rocky Mountains. At just above 11,000 feet you will enter the Eisenhower Tunnel and drive through the continental divide. You will see the Loveland ski area on your left just before you enter the tunnel.
On the other side of the tunnel you will be in Summit County. As you descend down the mountain on I-70, the exit for Silverthorne, CO and the Keystone Ski Resort will be at the bottom of the hill. Take a left onto route 6 once you exit and just follow the road to Keystone.
