Planning Your Trip

From booking travel and lodgings to ensuring you don’t miss out on any exciting activity, vacation planning can be overwhelming.  Not only is Peak 1 Express here to help you get the most convenient and affordable mountain transportation, but we’ve compiled some resources to streamline the rest of your Colorado vacation planning!



Unsure which Colorado Airport is the best choice for your trip?

Denver International Airport (DEN) is an international hub and Colorado’s largest airport. Flying into here offers increased flexibility in flight times and transportation options.  As the third busiest airport worldwide, DEN offers flights to over 200 destinations. Colorado Springs Airport (COS) serves 6 major airlines and is often less crowded than Denver International Airport.

Additional options include Eagle Airport, just minutes from Vail and Beaver Creek or the Yampa Valley Regional Airport, located in Hayden just 30 minutes outside of Steamboat. Although these Rocky Mountain airport options are closer to the mountains and your ski resort destination, they are generally more expensive with fewer flight options.


Peak 1 Express is proud to offer the most airport time and schedule options of any mountain shuttle provider. Our Shared Shuttles, including Discount Shuttles and Door-to-Door Shuttles, ensure your convenient and affordable travel between DEN and your Summit County or Vail Valley destination. Whether you’re travelling to Breckenridge, Frisco, Vail, Beaver Creek, Keystone, Copper Mountain, or another Rocky Mountain destination, our shuttles make it easy to get to your favorite ski mountain or vacation destination! Our Private Charter Transportation options are also available for travelers flying into Eagle Airport, as well as provide the perfect option for group travel throughout Summit County, Vail Valley, and across the Front Range.

Our transportation options ease stress over navigating winter mountain driving, parking, traffic, and rental car fees. Highly trained drivers ensure your safe journey through the mountains, while our spacious vehicles, complete with complimentary Wi-Fi and water, make it easy to relax and enjoy the views out the window.


When deciding on where to stay, the Rocky Mountains offer a plethora of choices. For some inspiration on where to visit, view our destination guides. Check out lodging options on Airbnb, VRBO, or at local hotels or resorts; with the Rocky Mountains being such a popular destination throughout the year, there are plenty of options to choose from! And with our Door-to-Door Shared Shuttle service, you will even get dropped off right at your lodgings.

Vacation rentals or Airbnb homes may be the best option for large groups looking to stay all together, while a hotel may be the best option for those looking to stay in a central location with plenty of restaurants and activities directly nearby. We recommend booking your accommodations and transportation as soon as possible to ensure you get the best deal out there!


From outdoor adventure opportunities to festivals, events, great cuisine, and historical attractions, anywhere you decide to travel to in Colorado will offer exciting activities for the entire family!
