Denver International and Eagle County Regional are the recommended airports to fly into.
We recommend you rent a car to get you back and forth from the airport and to and from the ski areas. Cost of an airport shuttle can frequently be as expensive or comparable to that of a rental car. There are several rental car agencies located at both airports.
Shuttles are also available from the airports:
Colorado Mountain Express
