Colorado Tries To Get Skiers Out Of Cars And Onto Buses To Tamp Down Traffic
More than a half-dozen world-class ski resorts are less than 100 miles west of Denver. The trouble is that they're also some of the most popular — and there's really only one road to get to them: the dreaded Interstate 70.
"In the beginning, I could leave at 6:30 [a.m.] or 7 [a.m.] and get here in one hour," said Midhun Mohan, who has skied at Loveland Ski Area for the last eight years.
"But now, I probably have to leave at 5:30 [a.m.] on a day like this," he said on a recent Saturday morning.
