The Winter Park Express, operated by Amtrak, carries skiers, boarders, snow lovers and other day-trippers between Denver Union Station and Winter Park Resort during ski season. The express runs Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays, January through March or early April. A train first started running on this route in 1912, giving the line plenty of history behind it. Trains depart Union Station at 7 a.m., arriving at Winter Park Resort at 9 a.m. All tickets are one-way only, so passengers can spend the day at Winter Park before boarding the train at 4:30 p.m. for the return trip, arriving at Union Station at 6:40 p.m., or stay overnight or even a week for a romantic getaway. Ticket sales for the following season typically start in August. Reserve seats as far in advance as possible as the train often sells out.
