Glenwood-to-Aspen light rail is the answer
Regarding Toni Kronberg’s letter supporting an aerial gondola (“Visions of an aerial gondola over Aspen,” Nov. 19, aspentimes.com): Toni! Your gondola idea might work between Snowmass Village and Aspen Mountain via Buttermilk-Highlands as a skier mover; but a more practical solution for the entire valley from Glenwood and Carbondale to Aspen is light rail.
We acquired the rail right-of-way years ago as a way to solve the Roaring Fork Valley’s long-term transportation needs. Valley-wide light rail, combined with feeder busses, is the only practical solution to our valley-wide congestion.
