    From Denver to Vail in 9 minutes

    Denver was selected as one of the 10 Hyperloop route winners from > hundreds of entrants.

    Part of the system would include a Denver to Vail spoke which would take only 9 minutes.

    Wait a minute. Accelerating and decelerating to go from Denver to Vail in 9 minutes - How many g-forces is that? I get roughly 23 Gs? And you have to experience it twice, speeding up and slowing down. How many Gs were there in an Apollo rocket launch?

    Annnd the line for this bullet train to vail would be longer than just driving there.

    every epic pass idiot flocks to vail by train, I whisk up to a-basin or winter park on I-70 or US-6 without traffic. works for me.

    It accelerates and decelerates very slowly to minimize G-force effects. Also, they're going to bank the tubes in certain places where needed.

    It's not a bullet train; it would be several times faster than that. Closer to 600 mph.

    Yes I knew that. I meant bullet-like "train" not Bullet Train.
    I'll just take my private jet to Eagle County.
