Vail Ski and Snowboard Travel Tips

What’s the best way to get to Vail if I’m flying into Denver or Eagle?

If you aren’t renting a car, we recommend using Colorado Mountain Express. They have a fleet of over 250 vans and private cars providing service to all the best mountain locations plus they have free wifi in the car. Denver International airport to Vail drive time is about 2 hours and 15 minutes. Eagle to Vail is 35 minutes.
