Welcome to SkiSU


SkiSU provides round-trip transportation between CSU and the designated ski resort for $20 per student.

All buses depart at 6:00 am from the bus stop at Plum and Meridian (across from Parmalee Hall, map) and return to campus at the end of the day.


PUBLIC HEALTH NOTICE: Due to the COVID-19 Pandemic, occupancy on the SkiSU bus will be limited to 24 passengers and face coverings are required at all times on the bus. All trips listed below are approved at this time, but trips could be canceled if guidance from the state or county changes. Ticketholders will be notified directly via email and text in case of cancellation, and all updates will be posted to this page. A full refund will be provided if trips are canceled due to public health concerns.


This season, most resorts require a reservation from passholders or a lift ticket purchased in advance. Please check the website of the resort you plan to visit for the most up-to-date information and to make a reservation. SkiSU will work directly with the resorts that require parking reservations (Copper and Eldora) to ensure that passengers can be dropped off on our scheduled dates.


Funding to support student tickets for 13 trips in the 2020-21 season was provided by the Alternative Transportation Fee Advisory Board (ATFAB) of The Associated Students of Colorado State University (ASCSU). For more information about the program, please visit pts.colostate.edu/skisu.
