Transportation to Keystone

There are many options to get to Keystone. Airlines fly into Denver International Airport, and ground transportation options range from ride shares, shuttles, rental cars and buses to take you up the I-70 corridor to the mountains of Summit County, Colorado.

Denver International Airport is the largest airport which is 90 miles east of Summit County. Eagle County Regional Airport is another option which is 65 miles west of Summit County near Vail, Colorado. If you are planning to drive a rental car, we highly recommend that as you book your flights to Colorado you also reserve your vehicle ahead of time as it is often difficult to find a rental car on arrival.
If you are considering driving be sure you are prepared for winter conditions in the mountains. During the winter, CDOT issues chain laws which require all vehicles to have 4WD, AWD and/or snow tires or chains when the chain law is in effect. Plan to leave early when going to or from the airport as driving conditions in the area can change at any time and traffic is common.
Rental car services are recommended for travel to this location.
