About the only option is CME. Here is their website for cost www.cmex.com

After thinking about it, there are a couple of other options, depending on how much time he has and how much hassle he is willing to deal with.

He could do the greyhound bus from Denver to Glenwood and then take the local RFTA bus from Glenwood to Aspen. He could also take the AMTrack train from Denver to Glenwood Springs and then RFTA to Aspen. CME is about $77 from Denver to Glenwood Springs, so it might also be an option to rent a car.

The transportation options are so few and such a hassle, I usually just drive to Denver to pick my guest up. It's easier for all of us that way.

You are probably right. He'll probably get picked up at the airport. Since he and his friend are going on a jeep road trip anyway, they wcan start around Boulder/Estes Park/Rocky Mountain and work their way back to Snowmass area. (His friend really hasn't explored all the great smaller places around the state.)

When I hear/read about the development in your area, it reminds me of Florida. Glenwood was the "springs" and still had a western town feel. As I posted to someone this morning, I remember when Aspen had a hardware store on the main street and other local shops before Gucci and other chains came to town.

(Should have bought property in Basalt in the 80s!)
