This is a small price to pay to make travel stress-free. You'll avoid traffic, icy roads, and parking. The ride only takes two hours. It is quick and comfortable!

The train has dedicated storage for skis and snowboards that travelers are welcome to use at no extra charge. Since the train is a double-decker, you'll have the opportunity to go to the upstairs observation car, which provides awesome views of the Rocky Mountains. 

Need to catch the train on a weekday? Check out the California Zephyr. You'll just have to grab a shuttle connection at Fraser, CO, eight miles west of the resort. Use the station code WPS for Winter Park Resort to book the shuttle with your Zephyr ticket.
