We decided to take a roundtrip shuttle from Denver to Keystone during our winter holiday, as we were unsure of the weather and didn’t want to chance renting a car to drive through snowy mountains. So glad we did because a huge snowstorm came through on the day we needed to get back to the airport! I highly recommend this service. After researching other companies, Summit Express had the best price. And they live in the Summit area, so all the drivers know how to drive in winter weather.
Flying in on New Year’s Day, the weather was sunny and warm in Denver, so our ride to Keystone was clear and uneventful. Our driver, Stuart, was excellent. We received a text in the morning before our flight took off from Chicago. And texts throughout the day, as our flight was delayed. The dispatcher and driver both were keeping track of our flight, so they knew the exact time we landed. Stuart was friendly and a very skilled, safe driver. Dropped us off at the rental company office, and when we realized that we’d need to get a shuttle to our property, Stuart said he’d take us there even though he didn’t have to do that.
On the day of our departure, it had been snowing all night and heavy snow in the early morning hours. We were supposed to be picked up at 6:30am for the ride back to the airport. At 5am, we received a call from the dispatcher about the weather. We discussed the fact that Southwest was cancelling morning flights out of Denver, but our flight wasn’t until the afternoon. The dispatcher said he’d call us back with information. We kept in constant contact as we watched the news; then received a call from dispatcher, then driver, saying that I-70 was closed. Our driver, Mark, made the decision to have one of their snow plows drive in front of him to get to our property by 6:15. He said he’d pick us up and take us to the highway entrance, where there was a store with a Starbucks. We waited in there and had coffee and breakfast with Mark until he received word that the highway was open.
We got on a very snow-covered road, passed a few trucks and other vehicles, and then had the highway to ourselves as we made our way to Denver. Mark was an EXCELLENT snow driver and we never slipped or had any issues on the snow/icy roads. The shuttle was also well-equipped to handle the road. Mark got us to the airport in plenty of time. He, too, was a super friendly, professional, and safe driver. Cannot say enough about Summit Express!!!
We booked a trip to Colorado, and being Florida natives and not used to driving in the snow, we wanted to shuttle from Denver Airport to Copper Mountain Resort. A friend recommended Summit Express. The driver (Christopher) picked us up at the scheduled time, was extremely friendly and helpful. He talked with me the entire 2 hour ride to Copper Mountain and gave me lots of local information and tips that were very helpful during our stay.
The return trip was just as accommodating. I didn’t get our drivers name, but he was friendly and helpful with our baggage and airport transfer. Overall, we couldn’t have been more satisfied with the service. I strongly recommend using this express if you’re not familiar with the area and terrain.
From now on, these guys are my new shuttle service when travel around Colorado. We had a mishap with our luggage while on our way to Breckenridge. When we realized it, United Airlines called me and explained to me that I had to go back to the airport. Scott, from Summit immediately asked me if he could speak to the rep.
Long story short, Scott tried to explain to the rep that they can go back to the airport and pick up our luggage…they’ve done it before for customers in the past. Unfortunately, United couldn’t give us a straight answer, so my friend and I had to make the 2 hour drive back to Denver.
Either way, Summit and Scott were amazing. They gave us a great rate to go back to the airport and back to Breckenridge.
Go with Summit if you plan to make trips around Colorado. I highly recommend them.
Absolutely loved working with Summit Express! Could not have been better. We were shuttled from DIA to Breckenridge various times over two months, using 28 shuttles in total. Not once did Summit Express make a mistake, every transfer was perfect. Always on time!
We loved their friendly customer service. They were flexible when we had to change our schedule multiple times at the last minute, courteous to our needs, and they really cared about making us content with what we were buying. They are all about their customers and I could not think of a better company to use.
I want to thank you for your excellent services yesterday in particularly lousy weather. Your team called me on Saturday to alert me to impending weather concerns and the fact that I might have troubles making my flight home Sunday. The dispatcher put me on an earlier than planned shuttle and got me to the airport on time. The trip from FTC to DIA took four hours and your driver Dave did a nice job. I will use your service again and I will recommended it to others. The bottled water was appreciated as well.
I wanted to thank you for the most enjoyable ride from DIA to Breckenridge on July 10th with Roy. He was so full of knowledge and exciting things to learn about the area that we even invited him to join us on our expedition in Leadville. Of course he had to decline. Thanks again Roy for making our trip to the area one that was more enjoyable because of what we learned from you. God bless and safe travels. I plan on seeing you again soon.
I would like to thank you Summit Express for the superb accommodations and excellent service. I have to travel from Keystone to the Denver Airport once a month, I am in the National Guard and have to fly to my base. You have been a life saver for me!!! I had absolutely no wait times and it was the easiest trip ever! Angel was my driver on the way home, and she was the best!!! Very nice, polite and a wonderful personality!!! You have made my life so much easier! Thank you so very much! You have such a wonderful company!
The airport pick-up with Scott went very well. His call on the morning of pick-up was very thoughtful, and he had lots of tidbits of information along the way. He made our visitors feel welcome. He made it even better for us by letting the young family out at Wendy’s where he dropped one passenger, then ran me up to Wildernest, and resumed the trip to Breckenridge with the young family. Great way to meet everyone’s needs. I’ll pass on the experience to others and we’ll definitely use Summit Express again.
This company was spectacular. They were prompt, the shuttle service from Denver Airport to Breckenridge was excellent and the driver was friendly and accommodating. He made everyone feel welcome and comfortable. I would recommend this service to my Mother and plan to use Summit Express next time I visit Colorado.”
Much gratitude for the very enjoyable ride from Breck to DEN on Tuesday… the good conversation and scenic tour made the trip fly by! Know that I especially appreciated the door-to-door service. If ever back in Breck and in need of transportation, I will definitely be calling Summit Express.
Have used summit express for the first time as I normally use CME.Your reservations, friendly driver, quality of vehicle and overall experience was excellent and I will be using you again
Just a quick note to tell you how much I enjoyed my ride to the airport with Don yesterday. Don was polite, funny, informative and friendly. I was expecting to put on my ipod headphones and listen to music the entire ride but talking with Don about Colorado, life and laughs made the ride very very enjoyable. Thank you for your very prompt service and ease of getting to the Denver airport.
