SUMMIT AND EAGLE COUNTIES, Colo. – People living or vacationing in Colorado’s mountains who need a dependable ride to and from the many ski areas in the state now can take an Uber ride to their hill of choice.

UberSKI launched Dec. 9 and offers rides in Summit and Eagle counties, though drivers are allowed to take people most anywhere across the western half of the state.

The program started testing in Salt Lake City and Reno, Nevada last year.

To request an UberSKI ride, users only have to open the app and enter a destination as usual, but have to request an “UberSKI’ ride.

Drivers for UberSKI will have vehicles that can carry up to four passengers and their skiing or snowboarding gear. The UberSKI ride will cost an additional $6.

Uber launched its Colorado High Country services in Steamboat Springs, Aspen, Vail and Breckenridge last year.

The UberSKI service is an extension of UberXL services, which the company said could also take snow gear.
