Important Information:

  1. Due to COVID-19, capacity on Mountain Express buses will be limited to 23 riders.
  2. If chains or 4WD are required on Snowbowl Rd, demand for Mountain Express will be high and long lines will form. Guests are encouraged to have an alternate plan to access the mountain.
  3. Those who take Mountain Express are encouraged to plan their return trip accordingly, knowing that capacity on the return buses will be limited and lines will start forming around the time the lifts close. Plan to leave early if possible!
