Guest Commentary: Solve the I-70 ski-traffic nightmare with mountain trains 25.1.2020 Denver Post: Opinion
In December, passengers on the inaugural Snowstang to the Arapahoe Basin ski area spent around five hours getting to the slopes and even longer returning to Denver. During the Martin Luther King holiday weekend, drivers reported trips upwards of six hours from Denver to Silverthorne. Our governor, Jared Polis, reported a six-hour return trip from Vail on a Sunday evening last year. Every weekend, there is another traffic meltdown on the I70 corridor to the mountains. There is frustration, road rage, defeat, and at times calls from the Colorado Department of Transportation to avoid that road altogether. Regardless of whether or not you yourself regularly make regular trips to mountain destinations, our economy and quality of life hinge on those trips. Something’s gotta give.
