Vail Pass is a high-mountain pass at an elevation of 10,666ft (3.251m) above sea level, located in the Rocky Mountains of central Colorado. Vail Pass lies on the boundary between Eagle and Summit counties, between Vail on the west and Copper Mountain on the east.
If you make a reservation for our Vail Pass Shuttle, we drive you to the top of Vail Pass in one of our comfortable passenger vans and you ride down the 14 miles of Summit County's paved scenic recreation path to Frisco where we will pick up the bikes at the drop off location.
We offer two shuttles every day from May 15 through Oct 15 (weather permitting). Go to the Summer Rentals menu at the top of the website and click on the Reserve Vail Pass Shuttle tab. The morning shuttle departs our store in Breckenridge daily at 9:15am, while the afternoon shuttle departs daily at 12:15pm. There is a maximum of 14 people allowed on each shuttle. Our reservation system will let you know how many spots remain available for each shuttle time.
We do not accept reservations after 12pm (noon) Mountain Time the day prior to biking. If you're trying to book after the noon cutoff time, call us for availability as there may still be spots open.
