RTD visits Eldora on Presidents Day

On Monday, representatives from RTD visited Eldora Mountain Resort to talk with skiers and snowboarders about how to beat the traffic, avoid weekend single occupancy vehicle parking fees and ditch the fight for parking spots by taking the Route NB2.

RTD Senior Specialist of Community Engagement Brandon Figliolino and colleagues Carl Green, Civil Rights Division Director, and Austin Nettleton, Senior Specialist of Public Relations, spent the morning of Presidents Day in the Timbers Lodge at Eldora. While passing out RTD-branded neck gaiters and lip balms, RTD staff chatted with Eldora employees and customers. Feedback on the NB was positive. Winter sports enthusiasts enjoy having easy access to the ski slopes, and employees of the resort appreciate that the NB can take them up the mountain regardless of weather conditions.

The Route NB2 provides seasonal service between downtown Boulder and Eldora Mountain Resort. The route features regional coach-style buses with luggage bays where customers can store their ski, snowboard and gear bags, while enjoying a comfortable and relaxing ride straight to the Alpenglow Lift at the base of Eldora. Customers can purchase a Regional 3-hour pass for $5.25 or a Regional/Airport Day Pass for $10.50. To avoid issues with cellular reception at Eldora, customers are strongly encouraged to pre-purchase their fares before beginning their Eldora-bound trips using the RTD MyRide app.

RTD staff will visit Eldora again later this season. Check out the events calendar to see where they will be next.

RTD thanks Eldora for its continued partnership and looks forward to more collaboration in the future.
