There are two types of tickets available for all trips of the Ski Bus:

  • Regular tickets are available for $15 (roundtrip) for current University of Colorado at Boulder students, faculty, and staff. There are typically 35 regular tickets available for each trip.
  • Herd tickets are available for $5 (roundtrip) for current CU students who are members of the Herd (the student branch of the Alumni Organization). There are only 20 Herd tickets available for each trip. You do not need your Herd membership number or card to buy your ticket, but your card will be checked when boarding the bus. Not a HERD member? Join here.

People not affiliated with the University of Colorado at Boulder are NOT eligible to purchase or receive tickets for the Ski Bus under any circumstances except the following:

  • Each University student, staff, or faculty member that purchases a regular ($15) or Herd ticket ($5) is eligible to purchase one (1) regular ($15) ticket for a non-University-affiliated guest. The University student, staff, or faculty member must board the bus on the day of the trip in order for the guest to be allowed to board the bus.

Standby Tickets

We also offer standby tickets on the morning of the bus trip. You can pick up the bus as a stand-by at any bus stop, however we can only guarantee a spot at the Farrand Field Stop. If you get on at an earlier spot and there is no available seat at Farrand you will have to get off the bus and we will not be supplying a ride back home. They are only available on a space-available basis to fill empty seats on the bus, and will be sold for $15 (cash or check only, no credit cards). These tickets are not guaranteed to be available, but typically we have between eight and fifteen seats available on the morning of the trip due to no-shows. To date, we have never turned down a patron hoping to purchase a standby ticket. Herd ($5) tickets will not be available on the morning of the bus. Exact change is required.

Change and Refund Policy

Tickets are non-refundable.

In the event that you can not use a ticket you are welcome to give it or sell it to a friend for face value. If you sale a ticket for over face value we will permanently ban you from riding the ski bus. This person will tell the ski bus manager for whom they are skiing and we will mark them down in your place. Please note if two people show up for one ticket only one can ride on the bus. The other will have to purchase a stand-by ticket.
