By air: Denver International Airport (DIA) has daily flights to and from most major cities. Also, the Colorado Springs and Vail/Eagle Airports are served regularly by major airlines from cities all across the country. Employees who are not planning on bringing a vehicle to Summit County will need to arrange their own transportation from DIA to Summit County. Options include shuttle service through Colorado Mountain Express and bus services via Greyhound.
Since A-Basin is 5 miles from the nearest town, it can be helpful to have a personal vehicle, although it's not required. Summit County provides FREE bus service throughout the area including on-the-hour stops at The Basin during the winter season*. Winter schedules are typically not posted until October and can be viewed at www.summitstage.com.
*Keep in mind the A-Basin is open before and after the typical Summit County winter season (Thanksgiving – Memorial Day) and transportation to and from the ski area will be your responsibility when the bus is not running.
