The Ski Train Is Back!

WINTER PARK, Colo. (CBS4) – Skiers and boarders have another option to get up to the high country.

The Winter Park Express runs from Jan. 5 to March 25, including Martin Luther King, Jr. Day and Presidents Day, along with two additional Fridays — Feb. 2 and March 2.

The Winter Park Express will leave each weekend day at 7 a.m. Passengers will be dropped off at the resort by 9 a.m., then board the same train for their return trip at 4:30 p.m. They’ll be back at Union Station by 6:40 p.m.

“You don’t have to ski either. There are plenty of people, who we found last year, and it might surprise some, who went up to enjoy the day at the resort and never stuck a plank on their foot.

The trip takes about two hours,” said Amtrak spokesman Marc Magliari.

Adult tickets start as low $29 each way on select departures. Children ages 2-12 can still ride for half-fare with each ticketed adult.
