Denver International Airport has made the decision to close the airport as of 12:22pm today, 3.23.2016, until further notice. CME will suspend all pickups from the resorts to DIA after 1:30 pm today due to this closure. When Pena Blvd and other West Bound I-70 traffic opens, CME will transport guests who are currently at DIA to the Mountains, pending passable roads. For guests booked for pickup today after 1:30 pm, CME can re-book your shuttle for tomorrow or receive a refund.
Congratulations to Colorado Mountain Express’ Group Sales Team on winning the Best of Colorado 2016 award again for “Best Transportation.” The award was presented on March 15th in Englewood, Colorado at the UCHealth Training Center, home of the Denver Broncos. The 10th annual Best of Colorado Meetings + Events magazine awards are a collection of awards designed to honor the best in the Colorado meetings and events industry. These awards are determined by readers, not editorial staff.
On Tuesday, Mar. 8 CDOT has announced there will be a daytime closure to all traffic from 9:00 a.m.- 4:00 p.m. through Glenwood Canyon. This will impact Colorado Mountain Express’ schedule between Aspen/Snowmass and the airport.
Glenwood Canyon has been reopened by Colorado Department of Transportation on an extremely limited basis. The current plan implemented by CDOT is to open one lane of traffic from 4 PM to 9 AM, with a pilot car guiding cars in one direction at a time.
Per CDOT, I-70 is likely to remain closed at least until Saturday, 2/20, as inclement weather has created delays in crews’ progress bringing additional rocks down onto the highway and restoring safety. Colorado Mountain Express continues to monitor the situation with CDOT and will resume service between DIA and Aspen/Snowmass when the road has been deemed safe for travel.
During the Canyon closure period, CME will be taking requests from Aspen/Snowmass to/from Grand Junction airport on both our Charter and Premier services. We are accommodating a few reservations to Grand Junction and are planning to be ready for Thursday afternoon shuttles, with anticipation of Glenwood Canyon being reopened by CDOT.
