Ski train to Winter Park
Ride from Denver to Winter Park in two hours -- with no headaches

The Winter Park Ski Train isn't exactly the speediest way to get to the slopes, but it's a fun one. Which would you rather do on your way to the ski hill -- sit in zero-to-60-to-zero traffic, or have a nice breakfast and read the paper? We'd prefer the latter, and we'd guess you would too. So when the train went kaput last year -- after former owner Anschutz Co. sold the line to a Canadian company -- we were a bit bummed out. No longer. Rio Grande Scenic Railroad will restart the Denver-Winter Park service on December 27th, traveling weekends and certain holidays, until the end of March. Trains leave Denver's Union Station at 7 a.m. and arrive in Winter Park just after 9 a.m. If you plan to ride before February 7, pick up a special "Ride and Glide" fare: $79 for a round-trip ticket and a Winter Park lift ticket. Pretty sweet deal, if you ask us.
