Why I Dig this Deal:

Winter Park is one of the most affordable ski & board resorts in Colorado. Plus, you can skip that costly rental car and take the train!
Clara Bosonetto | December 5, 2023

Amtrak’s Winter Park Express, with service between Denver Union Station and the Winter Park Resort, will offer 40 round trips this winter season. The new season of the Ski Train will be offered each Friday, Saturday, and Sunday from January 12 through the weekend of March 31, including two holiday Mondays: Martin Luther King Jr. Day (January 15) and Presidents’ Day (February 19) plus two ‘bonus’ Thursdays: March 14 and March 21.
