The Ski Train

Winter Park Express: ski train from Denver to Winter Park Resort
Winter Park Express: ski train from Denver to Winter Park Resort
All aboard the Winter Park Express, this skier experiences the reinvigoration of a Colorado ski train.

The jingling alarm didn’t wake me, but the sound of a train whistle did. I sat up straight. It was Ski Train Day—no regular Saturday ski day—when the Winter Park Express would run from Denver’s Union Station to Winter Park Resort and back.

Drive and ride green to keep our slopes white with CLIF BAR's new eco-ski travel site

Your base layers? Organic cotton. Your water bottle? Reusable and BPA-free. Even your skis are made with sustainable bamboo cores.

Yes, once you're on the slopes you ski a mean green streak. Unfortunately, driving to the mountain burns fossil fuels and gives you serious eco-guilt.

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.

Sidetracks: Berkshires' Norman Rockwell Museum

See rural life through the eyes of a legend at the Norman Rockwell Museum deep in the Berkshires.

Small-town life has a certain appeal. Maybe that’s why thousands of city-dwellers make pilgrimages to the bucolic landscape of the Berkshires every winter. It’s where a stack of buttermilk pancakes with fresh-tapped maple syrup followed by a day schussing down narrow, birch-lined trails constitutes a naturally purifying experience. Such folks should visit the Norman Rockwell Museum.
