In an effort to combat congestion on Colorado's notoriously-overcrowded I-70 corridor, CDOT is introducing affordable round-trip bus service to at least two popular ski resorts. Starting in December 2019, buses will run from Denver to Arapahoe Basin and Loveland each weekend, and on major holidays, according to the Denver Post.
Copper Mountain has also expressed interest in the program, and will hopefully be added to the service in the near future. While this program is unlikely to entirely alleviate I-70's ski-traffic-related issues, it's a step in the right direction, and if successful could be expanded to other resorts.
CDOT is also adding a line running from Denver to Estes Park to work in tandem with the existing RMNP Hiker Shuttle, which departs from the Estes Park Visitor Center and shuttles hikers into and out of the park. Service to Estes Park will begin on August 24th, and will cost a mere $10 for a round trip, compared to the $25 round trip to A-Bay or Loveland.

It might not be the biggest snowcat, but it sure does look snazzy. Panorama photo. Panorama Mountain Resort, located in southeastern British Columbia, nearly has more double-black trails than greens, blues, and blacks put together. As such, it should come as no surprise that they are also planning on operating an inbounds snowcat called "Monster X" to access far-flung, though fully avalanche-controlled zones in Taynton Bowl, located in the northern, AKA upper-left portion of the mountain.

After overcrowding issues during the 2019 Everest climbing season led to deadly human traffic jams, the Nepalese government proposed new permitting rules for the climb. Under the new rules, prospective climbers would have to prove that they summited another major peak and guiding operations would be required to prove at least three years of high-altitude experience elsewhere before setting foot on Everest.
