Have You Ever Driven a Mountain Pass?
To get to Winter Park, you need to go over Berthoud Pass. Berthoud Pass rises to an elevation of 11,307 feet and during your 12-mile trip up and down you will encounter 9 hairpin turns, steep grades, varying conditions, and even avalanche terrain. To say the least, this drive is intense if you're not used to it. But it's nothing for our seasoned Home James drivers. Our drivers are Winter Park locals. The average Home James driver has been driving for Home James for over 5 years, and has driven the pass literally hundreds--if not thousands--of times, in all weather conditions.
Uber and Lyft Might Not Get You Here
"My driver just dropped me off in Empire and refused to go any further!"
We get this call multiple times a year. Many Denver-based Uber and Lyft drivers are not experienced at driving in the mountains or in winter conditions. Also, there aren't any Uber and Lyft drivers that live in the Winter Park area, so don't bet your flight on the hope that there may happen to be one around on your day of departure. Leave the driving to our expert, professional drivers.
Your Rental Car Might Not Be Properly Equipped
Colorado passed a Traction Law requiring all vehicles driving in the mountains to have proper snow tires or chains. Your rental car that you're hoping to take to Winter Park might not have the equipment that is now required by law. Tickets aren't fun, but driving in an unsafe vehicle is even worse.
Home James is celebrating its 39th year in business, with over 500,000 satisfied customers and 16 million miles traveled. You can trust Home James, we have an excellent track record. We are Colorado Public Utility Commission licensed and regulated.
New Clean, Safe, Comfortable Equipment
Home James is proud to operate one of the newest fleets of vehicles out of Denver International Airport. Our equipment and operations are subjected to rigorous Colorado Public Utilities Commission safety regulations. Our fleet is cleaned before every trip to Denver. Our drivers are Home James employees driving Home James vehicles--not independent contractors operating their own vehicles.
