The long awaited return of the ski train to Winter Park is happening! Amtrak announced on their website, www.amtrak.com, that the train will run on weekends and some holidays beginning January 7th and running through March 26, 2017. A one way ticket is only $39.00 if you book their “early bird” price and then increases to $49 then $59 respectively as each lower-priced level sells out. The exciting thing about purchasing one way tickets is that you can either make it a day trip for just the day, or a weekend trip by returning on the next day. You could extend your stay even longer by reserving a return ticket on the next weekend. Travel through the Winter Park area without your personal car is extremely easy with the free shuttle system running through the valley. Stay at the base or even stay in the town of Winter Park or Fraser and enjoy everything that our community has to offer!
The train leaves Union Station in downtown Denver at 7 am and arrives at the Winter Park Resort platform at 9 am. The return trip departs Winter Park Resort at 4:30 pm and arrives back at Union Station at 6:40 pm. This is a wonderful way to enjoy your travel and avoid the I-70 corridor altogether. You can read a book, enjoy the company of family and/or friends and have a thoroughly wonderful time traveling to and from the mountains without the hassle of bumper to bumper traffic.
