The Front Range Ski Bus, Denver's newest option for
transportation to the slopes, is now officially open. The bus will
take skiers and snowboarders from Union Station in downtown
Denver and the Wooly Mammoth Park and Ride off C-470 and I-70, to
some of Colorado's best slopes. The bus will run from Thursday to
Sunday every week until the end of the 2012 ski season.
The company also has arrangements with Loveland Ski Area and
Arapahoe Basin to provide Ski Bus passengers with discounted lift
tickets. Paying passengers are eligible to receive $49 adult lift
tickets at Loveland Ski Area ($10 off) and $59 adult lift tickets
at Arapahoe Basin ($15 off).
The buses will leave from Union Station at 7 a.m. and from the
Wooly Mammoth carpool lot at 7:30 a.m. The first stop will be
Loveland, followed by stops at Keystone and then Arapahoe Basin.
The return trip will begin with departure from A-Basin at 3:25
p.m., Keystone at 3:40 p.m. and Loveland at 4:20 p.m. (allowing
some leeway for weather conditions). Arrival in downtown Denver
will be around 6 p.m.
Round-trip reservations on the Front Range Ski Bus are $39 for
adults and $29 for children 12 and younger. Passengers can book
their reservation by visiting www.FrontRangeSkiBus.com, or by
visiting the Front Range Ski Bus Facebook page and clicking on the
"Book Now" button.
While trips are now limited to Loveland, Keystone and Arapahoe
Basin, regular trips to Breckenridge and Copper Mountain are
planned to begin running in late January. At that time four buses
will run from Thursday to Sunday until the mountains shut down.
Front Range Ski Bus is owned and operated by Green Mountain Ski
Bus Inc., a Colorado-based business started in 2011. Visit www.FrontRangeSkiBus.com.
