With the best snow in the mountains in years, there are only nine more opportunities to enjoy the convenience of Amtrak’s Winter Park Express rail service from Denver to Winter Park this season.  The train will run this Friday, March 8, and then every Saturday and Sunday through March 31.             

Ticket sales are currently on pace to smash the record number of riders of more than 17,600 since the service was reinstated three years ago, further cementing its status as “Colorado’s Favorite Train.”  Passengers have especially enjoyed the new lounge car, which has been a popular addition this season.  There are still great seats available, particularly on Sundays. 

The train has an on-time or early arrival percentage of better than 90% this season, meaning even more time on the slopes enjoying over 240” of snow.

Tickets for the Winter Park Express start at $29 one-way, half-fare for kids 13 and under, and is a great way to enjoy Spring Break in the mountains without dealing with the hassles of traffic congestion.
