CU Ski Bus - Trip Information
The Ski Bus departs promptly from campus at the following times.
- 6:00 AM from the Williams Village Bus Stop
- 6:10 AM from Kittredge Loop Road at Kittredge Commons (in process of changing due to construction)
- 6:30 AM from Farrand Field at Farrand Hall
Please arrive early to ensure a seat on the Ski Bus. Empty seats may be sold upon departure from campus.
If you are riding the bus only on the return trip, please inform the program by email in advance to avoid complication. The program will then confirm at-resort pickup location.
Bring the following things with you to the bus in the morning to ensure that you are able to board the bus:
- Buff OneCard (required)
- Herd Membership Card (required if you have a Herd ticket)
- The ability to show your ticket purchase confirmation (smartphone recommended)
Skis, snowboards and related equipment must be stored in the undercarriage of the bus, but small bags or backpacks may be brought on bus. Belongings may be left on the bus while at the resort, but are not accessible between the time of arrival and departure from resort.
Once you're on the bus, feel free to make yourself comfortable. Your on-bus manager will make a few announcements upon leaving campus and then will begin passing out our various complimentary on-bus amenities. The drive to the resorts generally takes about two hours, so kick back, listen to music, or take a nap and let the driver get you there!
As the bus is nearing the resort, the on-bus manager will begin making some more announcements. Pay close attention to these announcements, as they contain important information about where you will meet the bus again in the afternoon and what time the bus will leave the resort.
When you meet the bus in the afternoon, make sure you are back to the bus by the announced departure time, which depends on your destination; the bus departs Arapahoe Basin at 3:30 pm and departs Breckenridge, Keystone, Vail, and Beaver Creek at 4:00 pm. The bus departs promptly at that time! If you are running late or are having difficulty finding the bus, you may call the on-bus manager who may hold the bus for you until you arrive.
I-70 is a congested, dangerous highway which becomes disastrously congested on weekends. Be mindful that we cannot guarantee a return time or condition, but provide an on-board restroom and DVD's to help pass the time.
