DENVER (CBS4)– Get ready for the Winter Park Express which chugs out of Union Station and up the mountain for the season beginning on Friday.
The train 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.
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.
