Ways to Get Here
There are several car rental agencies at the Denver International Airport. Four wheel drive is generally not necessary but can be nice. Most rental cars will have ski racks in the winter. If you choose another mode of transportation to get to our destination and then would like the convenience of a car or SUV while in Grand County, we have two local car rental agencies. Hertz/Home James, located in Fraser (800.359.7536) and Avalanche Car Rental (888.437.4101), located in Granby, will deliver a car to you in most cases.
Winter Park is located 93 miles northwest of Denver International Airport. From the airport, take Pena Blvd to I-70 West. From I-70, take exit 232 (Highway 40) over Berthoud Pass. Make sure to keep your eyes out for some of our locals on the way (think moose, foxes, and mountain goats!) Enjoy the beautiful views as you wind your way over Berthoud Pass and down in to the majestic Fraser Valley.View More Info
AMTRAK can be one of the most beautiful ways to see the country. Trains will take passengers through areas of America that roads don’t go. Relax and enjoy the scenery. AMTRAK stops in Fraser (located about 2 miles north of Winter Park). Trains arrive and depart daily, call AMTRAK or your travel planner for reservations or book online directly with AMTRAK . The California Zephyr route stretches from Chicago, IL all the way to Sacramento, CA.

Take one of these two options: Relax aboard one of Home James Transportation's luxury vans that will whisk you up the mountain. You don’t have to worry about driving, loading the car, parking and worst of all inclement weather -let the driver do the work!
Or enjoy a private shuttle ride in a van, Mercedes or limousine with Colorado Tour Transportation. This is an exclusive ride for you and your traveling mates. There is no waiting for additional passengers on your way up or down the mountain.
Knowledgeable local drivers can suggest everything from great restaurants and local hot spots to secret powder stashes on the mountain!View More Info
