Colorado Ski Areas Partner with Snowstang, Helping Reduce Congestion and Emissions on I-70

Sep 22, 2022 -- Posted by : goi70

In winter 2021/2022, four Colorado ski areas opted to partner with the Colorado Department of Transportation on their ski bus service, Snowstang. This service allows riders to avoid winter driving and provides the ability to relax instead of dealing with traffic. Through this partnership, Snowstang limited greenhouse gas emissions, took vehicles off I-70 and took stress off overwhelmed resort parking lots allowing more customers to hit the slopes. 

As we look forward to the next winter ski season, we want to thank the following resorts who partnered with Snowstang and gave their customers an easy way to travel the I-70 mountain corridor:

Arapahoe Basin Ski Area: Over the winter 2021/2022 season, their partnership with Snowstang took approximately 469 personal vehicles off the roads and contributed to a reduction equivalent to 1,050 pounds of carbon dioxide that otherwise would have been released into the environment.

Steamboat Ski Resort: Over the winter 2021/2022 season, their partnership with Snowstang  took approximately 131 personal vehicles off the roads and contributed to a reduction equivalent to 273 pounds of carbon dioxide
