Free Skier Shuttles in Aspen

RFTA free skier shuttles in Aspen

One of the most convenient methods of transportation for skiers in Aspen and Snowmass is the free skier shuttle service. These free buses, provided by the Roaring Fork Transportation Authority (RFTA), shuttle skiers and riders to all four mountains every day during ski season. If you or your family would like to start the morning with a few runs on Aspen Mountain, and then spend the afternoon on the slopes of Aspen Highlands, the RFTA skier shuttles make your ski-day plans hassle-free.

Called the Four Mountain Connector, the free skier shuttles leave from Rubey Park Transportation Center throughout the day. The transit center is located in the heart of downtown Aspen on Durant Avenue, directly across the street from the Silver Circle Ice Rink. Guests staying at Aspen Square Condominium Hotel, with its convenient central downtown location, are only a few blocks from Rubey Park, about a two-minute walk, even in ski boots.

Buses destined for the Snowmass Village Mall depart daily from Rubey Park every fifteen minutes from 7:45 in the morning to 8:15 in the evening, providing plenty of opportunities to get to and from Snowmass Mountain and the Mall.

If planning a day of skiing and riding at nearby Aspen Highlands, guests can walk the short distance from Aspen Square to Rubey Park to catch one of two buses. The Highlands direct bus leaves throughout the day from 6:45am – 8pm, bypassing the hospital on Castle Creek. The other bus to Highlands, the Castle-Maroon bus, takes a little longer due to a stop at the hospital.

To get from downtown Aspen to Buttermilk Mountain, hop on the Truscott Buttermilk bus, which departs Aspen from 8:00 am – 4:30 pm.
