We (I'm from Vail) used to have the Vail Avalanche (an AFHL team- that's where the Avs got their name). their last season was 1995-1996 before they packed up and moved to Montana. They had plenty of attendance from locals throughout the Vail Valley. And that was the American Frontier Hockey League. A few steps down from CHL.

As for road trips on the weekend, that's overrated. People who drive in it all the time don't think it's a nightmare. There are plenty of ski teams throughout Colorado who have to deal with weekend road trips throughout the winter.

I guess I read the part about traffic wrong.

Traffic really isn't a concern either. Games are at night long after the crowd from Denver hits the road after the lifts close at 4:00 pm. Night time in Vail is not a concern for traffic. we're only talking about 4,000-5,000 people too. the vast majority will be from Vail, Minturn, Avon, Edwards, Eagle, and Gypsum.
