Travel to the Vail Valley

Getting Here & Around

Navigating the Rocky Mountains is exciting in itself seeing the majestic mountain scapes and exploring the terrain — whether you are flying or driving. Commuting from Denver International Airport (DIA) is a 2 hour drive to Vail. Driving up on a Friday afternoon guarantees traffic, so watch out. Flying to the newly renovated Eagle County Airport (EGE) is convenient and adventurous flying in over the mountain tops — maybe try to grab a window seat? Renting a car or booking a shuttle service with Epic Mountain Express and Peak 1 Express is available at both locations, DIA and EGE airports.  The award winning FBO Vail Valley Jet Center allows for chartered flights with state of the art accommodations and services. Vail, Beaver Creek and ECO Transit bus systems allow for easy transit from town to town and within the villages once you’re here.
