Express Bus HeaderSki & Ride Express Bus

The Express Bus is the convenient way to Crystal Mountain on weekends and select holidays! Sit back, relax and let someone else drive you all the way to the way to the base of the ski lifts.   You’ll get dropped off at the base of the lifts with a lift ticket in hand, and at the end of the day the bus will be waiting for you in the front row.
