Is there parking at the pickup spots?
All of our pickups have free parking but Union Station is paid parking except on Sunday. Near Union Station in downtown Denver there is full day parking available at Central Parking, 3 blocks away. At the Wooly Mammoth Park & Ride you can park for free, our pickup is at section DD, across from the gas station.
Can I send my kids on the bus and stay home?
Depends, if your kids are 16 or older we will gladly take them off your hands for a day on the slopes. However if they are 15 or younger we require them to be accompanied by a chaperone.
I'm coming in from the Denver Airport, how do I catch your bus?
Our downtown pickup spot at Union Station
(17th & Wynkoop) would be the easiest route. You can either catch a cab or use RTD (Market Street Station) to get to 17th Street and Wynkoop, Downtown. The Union Station pickup is also easily accessible via the free 16th Street Mall Shuttle.
I'm staying at a hotel downtown, how do I catch your bus?
Our downtown pickup spot at Union Station
(17th & Wynkoop) is easily accessible from anywhere in Downtown Denver. You can either speak with your hotel concierge to arrange for transportation to 17th and Wynkoop, catch a taxi or use the free 16th Street Mall Shuttle.
I'm from Boulder and don't want to/can't drive, how can I get to your bus?
The RTD route "BV" can take you from the Boulder Transit Center to the downtown Denver "Market Street Station" which is only a few blocks from out Union Station pickup. Visit the RTD website
for more information.
Why should I book a trip in advance?
If you want to make sure you have a seat on the bus, please book early. We have a limited number of seats on the bus and we sometimes run out. The earlier you book
the better your chances of finding a seat. Bookings close at midnight before the day of the trip.
Where are we picked up/dropped off at in Denver?
We have 2 Denver area pickup/dropoff locations:
Union Station, in Downtown Denver is light rail accessible (about 3 blocks from the nearest stop).
Wooly Mammoth Park and Ride offers plenty of free parking.
What time is the morning pickup?
We keep our pickup times consistent as possible, so we can get you and your crew - and everyone else's - up on the slopes as early as possible. Please try to arrive at your pickup location a little early.
Union Station: 7:00 am
Wooly Mammoth Park & Ride: 7:30 am
What time is the afternoon pickup?
While our departure times are very consistent please be aware that there can be weather or traffic delays. Please be patient - we ALWAYS arrive. If you're concerned about your pickup please text or call us at (720) 92-GO-MTN.
Copper: 3:30 pm
Loveland: 3:45 pm
I'm 15, why do I need a chaperone?
Because we care. Seriously, we don't want to leave anyone up on the mountain because they forgot the departure time or just got caught up in the excitement. Taking into consideration both levels of responsibility and self sufficiency of youths 15 and under we require a responsible chaperone.
My bus was supposed to be here 5 minutes ago but its not here!?
Please be patient. Our buses are almost always on time, and we make every effort to make sure they are. However, unexpected traffic or crazy weather can cause delays. Just hang tight, we're on our way! Our buses have ALWAYS arrived at the pickup location.
How long is the return trip?
Often, the answer to this depends on traffic and weather conditions. The return trip from Copper, including all stops in between, can be 2.5 hours - and it usually is. However, if traffic gets as bad as we all know it can (hey - this is why you're taking the bus in the first place, right?), it can take much longer. We have identified several restroom spots that we will regularly visit especially if traffic is particularly challenging.
What should I bring with me?
Basically, all you need to bring is the usual snowsports equipment you'd bring if you drove up: ski/snowboard gear, food and beverages for the day (unless your eating at the resort of course), Chapstick & sunscreen. But, since you won't need to be paying attention to the road, be sure to bring something to entertain yourself on the ride, and maybe something to snuggle up in while sleeping. Oh and a sticker for the bus!
Can my stuff stay on the bus?
Sure. The bus is parked and locked at the final destination. However, we can't predict extreme situations, and we do not take responsibility for lost or stolen possessions. If you're worried about your items consider leaving them home or renting a locker at the resort.
What do you mean you don't have a bathroom?
Our buses don't have restrooms - just like the vast majority of vehicles stuck on I-70 - but we can, and do, make restroom stops - especially upon request, and always when traffic is working against us. It's a good practice to use a restroom before boarding the bus for the trip back to Denver - especially for kiddos!
Why $45 for adults?
First and foremost we have to pay for the bus, the driver, fuel and ongoing maintenance. We always pass along the best price we can. Keep checking the website, and our promotions page
- we're always on the lookout for ways to get you an easy, relaxing ride up to the slopes. We also do our best to include exclusive extras for passengers, such as discount lift tickets, gear rentals, and refreshments.
Your website says you run but I can't make a reservation, what gives?
We try to accommodate everyone but we have a limited supply of seats and they do sell out sometimes. The chances of this happening increase as you get closer you get to the date of the trip. To ensure you can make a reservation, book early! Also - reservations are only available until midnight before the trip.
I don't have a credit/debit card to make a reservation, can I just show up in the morning with cash?
No is the short answer. If you don't make a reservation online we may not stop where you are in the morning because we don't know anyone is waiting there. Also we don't carry cash on the buses and do not plan on starting.
If making your reservation online is an issue please give us a call at 720-92-GO-MTN and we'll figure something out.
