My name is Dick Oberle. My wife, Jutta, and I met in Winter Park, CO in 1971. I was working as a ski instructor and Jutta had come from Germany in order to help her aunt and uncle with their new ski lodge. After a few years of us both working as ski instructors in Winter Park and Europe, we settled in Düsseldorf, Germany for 20 years. The language school and children’s clothing store we founded both still exist and are doing well.



In 2002, we started Colorado Tour Transportation. We were the first to promote Colorado in Germany, organizing trips to Colorado for groups and individuals. Since moving back to Winter Park, Colorado from Europe in 1994, Jutta has been teaching skiing and I started Colorado Tour Transportation after driving for the local shuttle company for a few years. I saw a need for more than a shared ride from the airport, running sometimes only once a day.
Colorado Tour Transportation has proven very popular with locals who might have doctors appointments etc., and tourists who appreciate a no-wait service with stops only where they want, in safe vehicles with 4-wheel drive and studded snow tires. Jutta helps as much as she can with driving, along with our other mature drivers with many years of mountain driving experience. I also drive as much as I can, and we all enjoy meeting our clients from all over the globe, and getting their vacations off to the perfect start!
