Bookings for the Winter Park Express, the I-70-and-Berthoud-Pass-avoiding train from Denver’s Union Station to the base of the ski area in Grand County, are up about 70 percent over this time last year.
Amtrak has sold more than 2,000 tickets so far, says company spokesman Marc Magliari. He credits new service on every Friday of the season that runs from January to March. Last year, trains ran on just two Fridays per month.
