Arapahoe Basin strongly encourages our guests and employees to ride the free Summit Stage bus or to carpool to the ski area! Riding public transportation and carpooling reduces greenhouse gases and congestion on I-70. It also saves you money on gas, reduces the parking crunch at the ski area, and gives you someone to talk with on the ride up.

Summit Stage

  • It's free!
  • Receive discounted lift tickets for riding the bus!
  • Provides scheduled public transportation and ADA paratransit service for residents and visitors to the ski areas, shopping centers, medical centers, and some residential areas in Summit County.
  • Routes available to and from Arapahoe Basin mid-November through mid-April.


  • A number of spots will be reserved in the Early Riser parking lot for cars with 3 or more people. The spots will be reserved on weekends and busy holidays.
  • Carpool with four or more, take them all to the ticket window (even if some of them have passes) and save on single-day lift tickets!
