Getting to Eldora

Looking to hit the slopes? Catch the NB to Eldora Mountain Resort, which provides convenient daily service throughout the ski season. We recommend following these tips for safe and easy travel to and from Eldora:

  • Plan ahead. Know the Route NB schedule, 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 6:58 AM and last pick-up at 5:13 PM.
  • Check conditions and announcements at Eldora. Before leaving home, be sure to check Eldora.com/conditions to stay aware of any weather that may affect mountain operations and other important announcements.
  • 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.  
Review the Route NB schedule, and visit Eldora.com to plan your trip.
