If approved, a 4.5 percent tax on lift tickets will be added to raise money to support the town's parking and transit projects.

Vail Resorts is guaranteeing the tax will raise at least $3.5 million a year.

According to the Denver Post, a 4.5 percent tax would add about $6.70 to a $149 lift ticket.
