Did you know that there’s a train that will take you from Denver’s Union Station to Winter Park Resort? If not, right now is a great time to find out. Following big snowfall this month (more than 50 inches), Winter Park officials have cut the price of a roundtrip ride from $118 to $58 (or $29 each way) for this weekend only, according to an article by Denver Post’s “The Know.” The sale starts at 8AM on Wednesday, February 21 and last for 24 hours. Standard ticket prices range from $39 to $59 one-way, or $78 to $118 roundtrip.

This comes in the wake of a season with low snowfall around the entire state of Colorado, including at Winter Park. Now that the powder is finally falling, the Winter Park Express provides a great way to take advantage of new snow without having to deal with weekend traffic on I-70. The train leaves on weekend days at 7 AM and returns to Union Station at 6:30 PM. Interested? Book your ticket quickly, as openings are on a first-come, first-serve basis.

Will the discount be enough to encourage people to take advantage of this ski train? To be determined. While $58 dollars for a round-trip ticket is cheaper than the standard price of $118, is it cheap enough? Let us know what you think in the comments.
