From where I see things, there's terrific buses and shuttles around the lake and to/from towns and casinos to the lifts. So why isn't public transport more popular than that nice convenient and warm car that's in the driveway you pay some guy to snowplough????

I would love a better shuttle/P.T. system like they have in Europe. Right now, the shuttles run every hour up and down 89, if they can get it to every 30 or even 45, I think there could be more utilization, but it is a chicken/egg syndrome. Personally, I cannot see me using it because of our location but I think it needed. I am sure Squaw wants to get this going better before they start their massive base area undertaking. I am glad they are looking for a better solution bore the parking problem happens.

In the land of Henry Ford and Detroit and in the State that invented LA's parking lot called the '405', someone forgot to build public carparking????

 

Squaw can subsidise the shuttles with the money they get by suing whoever forgot to have parking areas in the new masterplan.

This pic is from yesterday, a Saturday, at 3.30pm from near the front of a bus queue. The resort is 'only' 3 hours drive from the city. The nearest competition is 5-6 hours drive from the city: too far for a day trip.

 

Can you imagine paying $40 a day to park 2 miles down the road, then $110 for a day ticket, and then it taking an hour to get to the chair and another hour to get back to the car???

 

SV could peeve a lot of people into going elsewhere if they don't plan parking etc properly. On the other hand, they could make a fortune if the 'average joe' doesn't say 'I'm going to a Vail resort'.
