Watch The Colorado Countryside Whirl By On This Unforgettable Winter Train
If you are a longtime Only in Colorado reader, you already know that we adore both train rides and the holidays, which is why we feel giddy whenever we can bring the two together! If you wish to enjoy the scenery of this festive time of the year without having to drive, you are going to love this unforgettable Colorado train ride.
Hop aboard the Amtrak Winter Park Express for an exciting journey that travels between Denver Union Station and Winter Park Resort.
While many railroads offer special Christmas-themed trains around the holidays, the Winter Park Express keeps it simple and scenic with a peaceful ride through miles and miles of undisturbed countryside.
There’s no need to add sparkly decor and flashy displays to the Colorado landscape - it’s picture-perfect just the way it is!
Another great thing about the Winter Park Express? You can customize your trip and go for just a day, a weekend, or an entire week!
Many passengers make the trip to hit the snowy slopes, but if you’re not a fan of skiing, there’s still plenty to see and do around Winter Park. You'll find fun shops, fine dining, and tons of special events.
The Winter Park Express runs on Saturdays, Sundays, and the first two Fridays of each month from January 4th to March 31st, 2019.
The train departs from Denver Union Station at 7 a.m. and arrives in Winter Park at 9 a.m. The return trip departs at 4:30 p.m. and arrives back in Denver at 6:40 p.m.
Tickets for this scenic trip sell out far in advance, so reserve your spot as soon as possible. For more information and to purchase tickets online, visit the Winter Park Resort
For the best deal, book early and snag a discounted one-way ticket on select trains for just $29. There are a limited number of these available, so start planning ahead! Once these sell out, tickets run from $39-$59.
