It's easy to argue Epic has changed (IN A BAD WAY) skiing and snowboarding...
Some Colorado specific IDEAS BELOW

The big project just downstream from Idaho Springs never worked.
We are concerned the latest effort of widenting will not work either.
The Veterans memorial aka "Gaper" tunnels still terrify Jerry + Geraldine on the way's to and fro ... back and forth from Keystone + Breck & the Suburban homestead or DIA.
The tourists from Charlotte and Dallas always hit and ride the brakes and freak out when they hit this easy to navigate obstacle.
IDEA: Send in the USAF from Colorado Springs. Bomb the tunnels + surrounding mountain to rubble. Call it practice vs. ISIS
Bomb to smithereens, clean up the mess, pave it straight for Geraldine. Officially rename them the Gaper tunnels.
Would take about a week of debris removal and paving of 1/2 mile.
Would provide valuable Military training.
A quick and easy environmentally safe way to reduce traffic, is to HERD ALL DENVER -> BRECK TOURISTS TO TAKE US-285
HOLY MOLY! THIS IS A GREAT IDEA!
Millions of Epic Pass tourists are heading to Breck. All Seasons.
Corrective Action is herd them over Hoosier Pass:
All Breck Tourists...
Avoid dangerous I-70 • take US-285 to Breck
Choose the faster safer alternate route. Rolling out of Denver head towards Red Rocks.. stop and snap some pix then update the 'gram.
Take US-285 up over and thru the big valley. Jump Hoosier pass and quickly land at the biggest ski haven on earth. Breck is Epic. Always expanding.
Breck: Always bustling. Always accommodating those trying to learn how to ski and ride. "
Stock Tip: Breck is rumored to be expanding to Peak#1 and possibly even to Buffalo! Get your Epic pass today.
A quick and easy environmentally safe way to reduce traffic, is to HERD ALL TEXAN-->>BRECK TOURISTS TO TAKE US-550
Corrective Action is herd them over the Million Dollar Highway:
All Breck Tourists...
Avoid dangerous I-70 • From Texas, take US-550 to Breck
Hey Breck Gapers.. Drive extra fast on this road!
Request CDOT to STOP STALLING & RE-ROUTING TRAFFIC ON BERTHOUD PASS. Expert skiers and riders KNOW HOW TO DRIVE!
Also, Keep US6 Loveland Pass Open.
Ad Campaign: Advertise heavily in "Centennial", the Highlands, the Highland Ranch gated communities, etc... Plus Honda Pilot & Minivan Dealerships.. Messaging to include:
"If you think 4 wheel drive means 4 wheel stop".. Go back to Wash Park
From Glenwood to Pink Floyd Hill:
Ban Semi Trucks on Friday 3pm to 9pm, Saturday 6am thru Sunday 9pm. Spring, Summer, Fall, and WINTER. Ban them all year long.
Re route them thru I-80 or I-40
PENALTY FOR NON ACTION: If the 'grits are stranded mid-stream.. invite tardy I-70 Semis to park in the lots at Breck for the weekend. This is a natural suggestion. Vail proper already has plenty of exhaust as the city is built in a rest area. (More diesel fumes for Vail Pass folks the better:).
Don't let East Vail folks be the only ones to enjoy the sweet smell of Diesel. Let BOTH East Vail + Breck folks breath in the fumes! Delicious!
These vehicles always F things up when it snows! Ban them.
The land of McConkey and the I-80 Corridor in Utah are currently experience the Invasion of the Vail Amateur Skiier. The "fencepost turtle" of Winter Sports.
