Ski Train Ticket Sales Have Been Strong

News reports indicated that ticket sales for Amtrak’s Colorado ski train remain strong with some trips in February and March expected to sell out.

The Winter Park Express began service on Jan. 7. It had been eight years since a Denver ski train had last operated.

However, the train operated briefly in March 2015 in observance of the 75th anniversary of the Winter Park resort.

Amtrak spokesman Marc Magliari told Trains magazine that the train has sold out every Saturday since it began earlier this month.

Magliari said the sell-out crowds this year surprised many at the railroad and Amtrak is looking at how it can improve and tweak the service next year.

In particular, Amtrak is eyeing making it easier for groups to reserve tickets in an entire car.
