The Results: Everyone Wants to Ride Winter Park's Ski Train

New, 1 comment

In one of Curbed Ski's most definitive polls ever, it looks like everyone wants to ride Winter Park's ski train next winter. Colorado's beloved ski train made a triumphant return this month when it sold out two one-time rides on March 14 and March 15. Curbed Ski asked our readers how they felt about the $75 per person ski train, and an overwhelming number of readers, 93%, would use the train next year. The ski train originally began operation in 1940 and ran on ski season weekends through 2009 before the train shut down due to rising costs and declining profits. But demand seems to be higher than ever, especially with traffic on I-70 causing many to rethink their weekend ski plans. So what's it going to take to bring the ski train back? A joint effort between Union Pacific, which owns the tracks, Amtrak, which owns the trains, Winter Park ski area and RTD, which co-owns Denver's Union Station. We'll keep you posted.
