The Ski Train, From Denver to Winter Park

Real Estate Agent with Exit Realty DTC 003887

(Me and my son, DJ on the Ski Train)

I love the ski train.  It is a fantastic value.  It departs Union Station, (down town Denver) and dumps you off at the base of Winter Park.  Think about this, enjoying a nice relaxing ride on Sunday morning reading the paper (or in my case, clipping coupons, hey every dollar counts) sipping your hot coffee and enjoying the scenery.  After a 1 hour 45 minute train ride you're energized and relaxed to hit the slopes for the best skiing ever, why is it the best skiing of all time?  Well you don't have to drive home on Sunday evening on I-70 while the thousands of people are crowding the 2 lane highway, and just pray there is not a blizzard.  This means you can ski hard, because when 3:30 rolls around and you hear the train whistle, you know you have time to hot one more run, even on Mary Jane and make it to the train before it departs at 4:00 pm.  And on the way home it couldn't be any better, there serve a wide variety of beers and wine, so you can ahhhhhhhhhhhhh relax for once.  Totally unheard of if you normally make the hellacious drive home.  (Just for the record I have been stuck in Frisco numerous times on the way home because they shut down Eisenhower tunnel.)  In the summers it is a fun little getaway too, great for the fam.  They have mini golf, alpine slide, rock climbing, downhill mountain biking, and last time we were up there we got some hippie entertainment, literally I thought I was in the 60's, quite amusing, I hope I don't offend anyone.  So it is about $50 bucks for the ride but they do some promotions.  For details check out the site:
