Ski Train to Operate in 2019

Amtrak said last week that it will again operate a ski train this winter between Denver and Winter Park, Colorado.

The Winter Park Express will run on Saturdays and Sundays between Jan. 4 and March 31, 2019. The schedule also included trips on the first two Fridays of each month.

The ski train will leave Denver Union Station at 7 a.m. and arrive in Winter Park at 9 a.m.

The return train departs Winter Park at 4:30 p.m. and is due back in Denver at 6:40 p.m.

The Winter Park Express follows a Union Pacific route (nee Denver & Rio Grande Western) via Moffat Tunnel that is also used by Amtrak’s California Zephyr.

Passengers who buy tickets early can obtain them for $29 one way. Those discounted tickets are being sold in limited quantities. Regular fares are $39, $49 and $59.
