In case you haven’t heard, Amtrak’s Winter Park Express Ski Train is having a 24-hour flash sale (in celebration of snow!) and offering up $29 one-way tickets and $58 round-trip tickets from Denver’s Union Station — a savings of up to $60 for you. On top of that, at least 10 inches of fresh powder has fallen at Winter Park Resort in the last 48 hours (bringing February snowfall totals to nearly 4 feet), and the snow isn’t showing any signs of stopping. Snow showers are in the forecast for Winter Park through Sunday.
The Winter Park Express departs from Union Station at 7 a.m. on Saturday and Sunday on Track No.5, and delivers to the Winter Park base area. Tickets are only good for travel this weekend, February 24-25. Amtrak’s flash sale ends at 8 a.m. on Thursday, February 22.
Amtrak’s discounted tickets for the ski train are first come, first serve — so stop what you’re doing, book your tickets, and enjoy a traffic-free ride to ski one Colorado’s most snow-blessed states this weekend.
