The Daily Navigator strives to help you make the best decisions in travel. While we produce content according with strict editorial integrity this post may contain references to partner products. Here’s a full explanation for how our team makes money .

It’s beginning to feel a lot like ski season because the Amtrak Winter Park Express ski train is officially back, offering 64-mile trips every weekend from Denver to Winter Park Resort starting at just $34 one-way.

Starting January 13 through March 26, 2023, the Winter Express train will run every Friday, Saturday, and Sunday, departing Denver Union Station at 7 am and arriving at Winter Park at 9 am. Trains leave Winter Park Resort at 4:30 pm and arrive in Denver at 6:40 pm for a full day of snow activities. 

How can I book? 

Bookings for the Winter Express ride are available for purchase online through Amtrak or via the Amtrak app. Group reservations of 9 to 14 people can be made by calling 1-800-872-7245. For bookings of 15 or more, an online form must be completed.

Adult one-way fares start at $34, while tickets for children aged 2-12 start at $17. Fares are subject to availability.

Only coach or Saver fares with level seating are available to book on this train, and fares are non-refundable. Amtrak Guests Rewards points cannot be used to book this route.

Will I be charged to carry gear onboard? 

There is no additional charge for travelers to bring their skis or snowboards, as carry-ons and trains offer dedicated baggage storage for gear during boarding. A wide, reclining seat, a big picture window, ample legroom, and no middle seat are all yours onboard.

See you on the slopes!
