Amtrak set up a ski train to take people to go skiing. This was in Colorado where many go to do this anyway. It is an extremely popular ski spot for people around the country. It was a big hit apparently. Tourists really enjoyed it which makes you wonder if they’ll do it every winter now.
- The nation’s only airport-to-ski slope train connection was a hit with tourists and is going to keep running from Denver to Winter Park Resort for the foreseeable future.
- Amtrak and Winter Park executives are meeting in Denver to talk about expanding the service, which currently runs Saturdays and Sundays in January, February and March.
- The train service increased resort visitors this season because about 75 percent or more of the train passengers skied or snowboarded when they arrived in Winter Park.
