You don’t need a private jet if you fly direct…
It’s easier to get to Steamboat Springs or the Vail Valley than ever before. Both ski destinations offer nonstop flights from 14 hubs on major airline carriers. Notably, both regional airports have top rankings for being more convenient and accessible than the majority of our ski resort rival airports.
By taking advantage of these direct flights, you not only get to skip the drive from Denver, but you also skip the connection time and the delays that can often frustrate travelers.
These robust nonstop airline programs also give you options: from convenient flight times to better pricing, you aren’t tied to one carrier, as you would be in many other ski resorts around the country.
And with both airports barely more than a half-hour scenic drive from the ski resorts, your stress-free vacation can start as soon as you land.
Flying to Steamboat
Yampa Valley Regional Airport (HDN)
It’s only 24 miles from Steamboat, 5 key carriers (Alaska, American, Delta, JetBlue and United) with nonstop flights from 14 cities including: Washington DC, Seattle, San Francisco, San Diego, Newark, Minneapolis, Los Angeles, Ft Lauderdale, Houston, Denver, Dallas, Chicago, Boston and Atlanta.
From the tarmac to your chalet will take just 30-40 minutes. Depending on your time zone, you can even be here before the last load up the gondola or before night skiing! To get a head start on your ski legs, show your same-day boarding pass (with a Hayden direct flight arrival) to get a complimentary night skiing pass from the Steamboat resort (some restrictions may apply).
Flying to Vail and Beaver Creek
Eagle Valley Regional Airport (EGE)
It’s only 35 miles to Vail and 28 miles to Beaver Creek with 3 key carriers (American, Delta, United) with nonstop service from San Francisco, Los Angeles, Salt Lake City, Phoenix, Denver, Dallas, Houston, Atlanta, Miami, Washington DC, New York, Newark, Philadelphia, and Chicago.
Many Vail Valley travelers arrive via I-70 from Denver, so those in the know can avoid unexpected road closures and congestion by flying direct. With the Eagle airport being just 28/35 miles to the resorts, you can literally step off the plane and step into your ski boots shortly after touch down.
Our Moving Mountains staff can assist you in arranging travel to Steamboat, Vail and Beaver Creek in the easiest/most direct way possible.
And of course, we can arrange for a shuttle service or have a private car waiting for you upon arrival.
But if you do have a private plane…
If you are flying privately, both Steamboat (Hayden) and Vail/Beaver Creek (Eagle) offer FBO services. Steamboat boasts two FBOs. One is located at the municipal city Bob Adams airport (just 4 miles from the resort) and the other is at the commercial airport 24 miles away, Yampa Valley Regional Airport (HDN). At YVRA, Atlantic Aviation manages the FBO with their renowned Atlantic customer service, including heated hangars, convenient waiting areas and more.
For our Vail/Beaver Creek guests, the Vail Valley Jet Center, located at Eagle County Airport (EGE) is known as one of the top FBOs in the country. It’s been called “the Ritz Carlton of FBO’s”, not that you’ll be there very long as we’ll have you whisked off to your chalet immediately after the luggage is loaded.
However you choose to get here, we want your travel to be “plane” and simple. Just contact our guest services department for details on how we can assist with your arrangements.
