Beaver Creek

Getting Here

By Air

Getting to Beaver Creek is quite simple thanks to Eagle County Airport, only 28 miles away. Alternatively you can fly into Denver International Airport (DEN). 

Eagle County Regional Airport is the closest airport to Beaver Creek. Flights into Eagle County Regional Airport are generally more expensive than flights into Denver International Airport as flights do not operate as often. Also note Eagle County Regional Airport is more likely to shut down due to winter weather whereas Denver International Airport doesn’t get much snow and is well prepared for extreme weather conditions. 

Denver International Airport is a hub for United Airlines, Frontier, Delta and Southwest. Southwest is a great lower budget option for those travelling to the ski fields as they do not charge bag or change fees- amazing for those chasing powder or taking their own equipment.

Shuttle Bus

Epic Mountain Express offers door to door service. This is a great option if you don’t want the responsibility of driving, filling up fuel, parking and clearing of snow. The drivers at Epic Mountain Express are trained for Colorado’s weather. With complimentary WiFi and a variety of vehicles, Epic Mountain Express has been named the “Best Transportation Company” in Colorado.  Epic Mountain Express also accommodates private group charters.

Car Hire

For winter driving, we recommend choosing a 4WD or all-wheel drive otherwise the car may require winter chains. It’s also worth checking the road conditions to check the I-70 status on road closures. This can happen in areas such as Eisenhower Tunnel, Vail Pass and the Continental Divide. The best part of this drive is that it is solid freeway driving for those who aren’t comfortable on windy narrow mountain roads. 

If you’re hiring a rental car at Eagle County Regional Airport you’ll find a variety of  options such as economy, compact, midsize, full size, convertible, van, luxury and SUV rentals. Rental companies such as Avis, Hertz, Dollar, National and budget will have these options available. Each rental company offers different pick-up and drop-off options. It’s best to check to see which option suits your travels best.

A few of the car hire companies you’ll find at Denver International Airport are Advantage, Hertz, National, Payless and Thrifty.

If you are wanting to hire a car as an international driver, Colorado recognises drivers licenses from other countries for up to 90-days. 

Note you must be 25 years of age in order to hire a car in the US. However some may make an exception in return for a higher rate. It would be best to contact the hire company if you are under the age of 25 to be sure hiring a car at a higher rate is possible.
