Are you planning a trip up to Loveland or A-Basin from Denver this year? Why fight the traffic by driving I-70 when you could sit back and relax with a bus ride?

The Colorado Dept. of Transportation plans to launch a program known as "SnowStang", an offshoot of the Bustang system, to help with I-70 congestion during the peak of the ski season, according to a report from ABC7 out of Denver.

With a reported launch date of December 14, the bus service will run from Union Station in Denver up to Loveland Ski Area and Arapahoe Basin. CDOT is also hoping that other ski resorts will come onboard.

The bus service will run on weekends, Christmas Day, New Year's Day, Martin Luther King Day, and President's Day, which are the busiest times during the ski season. 

A ticket to ride will cost $25 for a round trip. This rate comes from a reported 60% of the cost paid by the ski resorts serviced.

This announcement comes after an announcement that the Bustang service will also start running a $10 round trip ticket from Denver to Estes Park in August, which will allow riders access to Rocky Mountain National Park.
