Eagle County favors high-speed monorail
Eagle County Commissioner Michael Gallagher recently told officials of the Colorado Department of Transportation he believes a high-speed monorail is the best way to ease Interstate 70 congestion between Denver and Glenwood Springs.
The Eagle Valley Enterprise reported Oct. 23 that Gallagher identified the monorail system as the starting point and top priority in Eagle County's preferred solution for highway congestion in the mountain corridor about 90 miles south of Steamboat Springs. The estimated cost of the monorail is $5.6 billion.
CDOT is expected Nov. 18 to present a short list of alternatives to dealing with the heavy traffic on I-70.

Jackson Hole Mountain Resort appears to be content with its image as a destination ski area primarily for advanced skiers and snowboarders.
An article in the Oct. 29 edition of the Jackson Hole News & Guide reported that Mountain Resort Vice President of Marketing Kari Cooper told a gathering of business leaders she believes the resort can reach its goal of 400,000 skier days by the 2004-2005 season. Jackson recorded 370,000 skier days last winter.
"We found that 41 percent of our skiers choose JHMR because of the terrain," Cooper said. "We realize we're not playing a role in introducing people to skiing. Instead, we're attracting expert skiers and those who want to be challenged."
