All aboard the Winter Park Express, which made its return today


It’s back. The Winter Park Express is once again shuttling skiers, snowboarders and other tourists from Denver Union Station to Winter Park.

We climbed on board for the inaugural return ride and filmed the experience, which, yes, included a lovely sunrise on snowy, rolling hills.

Grab the hot cocoa, sit back and enjoy the ride.

Here’s the schedule:

  • Depart Union Station at 7 a.m.
  • Arrive at Winter Park at 9 a.m.
  • Depart Winter Park at 4:30 p.m.
  • Arrive at Union Station at 6:40 p.m.

Tickets are $40-60, and you should purchase them in advance.
