Best way to get from Denver Airport to Breckenridge
 
3 of us will be in Breckenridge 12/16-12/19. Shuttles seem expensive. Is the best way to go to rent a car?

Rent a car for sure! I lived in Breck for 2 seasons. The thing about Summit county is that there are a ton of options. Sometimes Vail will get snow and Breck nada. A-Basin will be insane and Keystone is ice. The best thing to do is to keep your options open to get the freshies!! I personally would not go there without a car. It's cool to check out some of the other towns around S.C. too.

Have fun chasin tracks!!

4wd rental. Like Tommy said, you're options can change. We nixed Copper one day due to high winds and went to Keystone to ski the trees. A-basin is just sic, my favorite for sure.

I never have, but I heard it's a nice way to get there.

How is I70 when it snows, I drove from breck to Denver in the rain in the summer and that **** was scary as hell... My cousin says sometimes It closes and you can take another route from the south and up through South park etc because its an emergency route they always keep open. might be a more scenic route.

its not bad, i've done it with a foot of snow on the ground in a front wheel drive escape rental. But if i did it again i would wait another day. The state will tell you to stay the hell off the road

I traveled solo and paid the $70ish dollar fee on one of the shuttles to get to breck village. I flew in during a big storm and to be honest it was nice not having to drive in the terrible conditions. Once I was there the bus route in town was awesome and got me where I needed to be. Then stayed in an airbnb place for $100 a night. I have not found a ski destination town that was this easy to get to and get around with renting a car.

Yep, and you can even take buses to the other resorts in Summit County. Did you take CME?
