SUMMIT COUNTY — Who say’s there’s no free ride?

To celebrate the start of full winter operations, Front Range Ski Bus is running a free bus from Denver up to A-Basin, Keystone, Loveland and Copper next weekend, right after what looks to be one of the first real snowy and wintry weeks of the season.

The bus has already been running on a limited schedule and will start operating four days per week (Thursday – Sunday) on Dec. 14, with basic round trip tickets for $35, down from $39 last year.

“Riding the bus up to the slopes is a great way to make new ski and snowboard friends before you even get to the slopes,” said  said chief marketing officer Martin Beran, who frequently rides the bus to ride up at A-Basin. “It’s a relaxing way to get up to the mountains.” he said. “This day is a great way for Denver residents to try out Denver’s best ski bus service without spending a dime.”

Reservations for the free bus open Dec. 10 and must be made on our website; by using the “FreeBus”promo code. Discount lift tickets for Copper & Loveland can be purchased while booking transportation.  Visit the Front Range Ski Bus website for more information.

Also available in December are FRSB Season Passes and 4-Packs which are a screaming deal.  Season Pass is only $299 and the 4-Packs are only $85.  Full fare round trips are $35 for adults and $29 for children. Pickup locations are in the DTC, downtown Denver and by Morrison, details on the website.

Beran said the locally owned company has carried more than 800 skiers and riders to the high country since starting operations in 2011, including kids whose parents drop them off at a Front Range stop and then pick them up again after the ski day.

Boosting the use of public transit is one part of the larger strategy to try and reduce congestion and speed travel times on the I-70 corridor, and Front Range Ski Bus has been partnering with resorts to offer some ski area perks.
