Flying to Colorado for Breckenridge Ski:

Most major airlines fly into Denver, Colorado. We do NOT recommend flying into Vail (minutes from Breck) due to consistent inclement weather related delays. Remember, if an airline has a weather delay you will receive no compensation and may not be able to fly out for days or even up to a weeks time!

Don’t gamble, you will be very sorry if you do try. Unless you have a Learjet, don’t fly into Vail.

Fly into Denver. Prior to arrival, you will want to book a shuttle as driving a rental car in bad weather is not smart, (plus you need to be 25 years old), and Uber/Lyft way too expensive.  It takes about 2 hours to drive from Denver to Breckenridge depending on traffic & weather.

Allowing for 3 to 3.5 hours from Denver Aiport to Breck is very smart.  On the way back, make sure you book your shuttle for 6 hours prior to your flight as Denver airport security is severely backed up, and you could encounter poor weather driving back.

Shuttles companies to book your roundtrip transfers (book at least 15 days in advance)

Denver Airport to Breckenridge (door to door)

Besides checking Expedia for airfare on major carriers into Denver, make sure you check direct on Frontier Airlines, Spirit Airlines, & Southwest. NOTE: Southwest has NO BAG FEES for your gear

Driving in for Winter Break Ski or Spring Break Ski as a student

Weather getting to Denver can be tricky in January or March, let alone once you hit the mountains west of Denver. If you only have a 2WD or rear wheel drive car, please don’t even CONSIDER driving in. You will likely not make it.  This INCLUDES 2WD SUVS and trucks.

Front wheel drive cars with good tires, as well as 4WD vehicles are best suited for the road trip. A couple tips here – prior to leaving make SURE you have either AAA Plus roadside coverage (for towing and/or breakdowns tows up to 125 miles) for about $100 for one year of coverage OR call your auto insurance and get roadside assistance (much better than AAA).

If you break down or go in the ditch, having this coverage will take that bad experience to one you can deal with so far from home. Not having it can spell thousands in unneeded expense. You can drop the coverage if you use your auto insurance once you are home. Typically, $30 to $50 per month.

Next, once you hit Colorado, whatever google maps says, allow for it to take 2x’s as long from the Colorado border as it says to Breckenridge or Durango for your college ski deal. Icy or snow packed roads can take a 2 hours drive from Denver to Breck and make it 4 hours if not 6 hours very easy. Tell inpatient people to just stay home. Taking it slow is the way to go.

Pre-collect for gas roundtrip based on your trucks gas mileage, as well as enough money for a full service car wash and vac. If you don’t, plan on getting shafted from your friends as once people are back they will not pay you what they owe.  If they don’t want to do this, tell them to get their own flight.

Don’t offer to pick anyone up either at the airport – if it’s Denver, it will add easy 2 hours each way to your already long trip. Even if in Durango (15 miles from Mountain) flights get delayed – and you’ll be sitting at the airport for THEIR convenience and $$$ savings not your own. Don’t get duped
