Getting Here and Getting Around
Getting Here by Air
Fly right into the Gunnison/Crested Butte Airport, just 30 miles down the road from Crested Butte. Car rentals are available at the airport but, most of our guests prefer to allow the Alpine Express Shuttle do the driving. Once in town, you’ll be able to get around via the Mountain Express, our free on-mountain transportation service, so a car is optional. Alpine Express airport shuttle fare is $60.06 for adults and $39.24 for children 12 and under. Please call 888-412-7310 if you’d like us to book your airport transfers. Be sure to ask about the “Kids Fly Free” promotion!
