The airlines have requested that all departing passengers arrive at least 90 minutes prior to their scheduled departure time.  The pick-up time from your lodging location in Crested Butte accounts for this request, plus picking up other passengers, the drive time, and the possibility of adverse road, traffic and weather conditions. Alpine Express wants you to have a comfortable ride to the airport, and we want you to make your flight. The pick-up time assigned for your return to the airport is the result of our many years of experience and our knowledge of the area.
