Colorado's Stress Free Ski Train

Written by 

Eager to ski, board or simply enjoy a little high altitude R&R as part of your family travel plan?

Getting to the slopes of Colorado is easier with new rail and flight offerings to get travelers straight to the slopes, skipping pesky traffic, rental car headaches and more.

The Winter Park Express Train, which reopened in January 2017, has expanded service to select “First Fridays” of every month. In 2019, the train will run every weekend from January 4 through March 31, 2019. 

With the revival of the Winter Park Express Ski Train and the new commuter rail line from Denver International Airport to Denver's Union Station, visitors from throughout the country and across the globe can use train travel for the entire trip from flight to Winter Park.

Discounted tickets are sold on a first come first served basis.

With one-way tickets and service on Saturday and Sunday make it a day trip, a weekend-long trip or an extended vacation. Customize your length of stay at Winter Park Resort and get as much skiing/riding in as you'd like. 

Here's a look at the Winter Park Express schedule:

  • Depart Union station at 7:00 am
  • Arrive to Winter Park at 9:00 am
  • Depart Winter Park at 4:30 pm
  • Arrive to Union station at 6:40 pm

Sounds like a plan!
