Getting to Eldora

Looking to hit the slopes? Catch the NB to Eldora Mountain Resort, providing convenient daily service throughout the ski season. When planning your trip, please note that due to health and safety guidelines, buses are strictly limited to 20 passengers per trip and will fill up quickly. In addition, extra buses will not be providing additional service on peak travel/powder days. We recommend following these tips for safe and easy travel to and from Eldora:

  • Plan ahead. Know the NB Route schedules, and don’t wait until the afternoon rush to catch the bus off the mountain. The NB runs hourly with first drop-off at Eldora at 8:58 and last pick-up at 5:13.
  • Have a back-up. Consider carpooling or scheduling a rideshare if you are in a party of two or more.  
  • Make a parking reservation. Eldora Mountain Resort has a new parking reservation system to ensure you have a spot when you arrive. Visit the Eldora website to plan your trip.
  • Protect your gear. Luggage bays will easily accommodate your ski and snowboard equipment, but it must be stored in a ski bag before boarding the bus. Ski bags are not required on regional buses when placed in lower luggage bins.
  • Mask Up! Most importantly, your safety and the safety of our drivers are top priority. Masks are required on all RTD vehicles.
