Open for the summer season, Peak 1 Express is now running our 14-person Mercedes Sprinters service to and from Denver International Airport to Summit County and Eagle County. Our luxury vehicles are now equipped with complimentary water and WiFi while you sit back and relax.     

Don’t spoil your vacation and check travel times before voyaging on I-70! Starting the first week of June through Labor day I-70 begins to see more and more travelers. Summer construction is up and running which may affect your travel times. With 4th of July falling on a Saturday this year prepare yourself for Sunday eastbound traffic starting around 11:am with a 4:00pm peak time. 

Summit County and Vail have great local craft breweries to enjoy a nice Sunday meal before making your heading back to the Front Range with us. Dillon Dam Brewery and Pug Ryan’s are right off I-70, just slightly south of Silverthorne. A great Mexican restaurant located in Frisco is Fiesta Jalisco Restaurant great for families and large parties.
