Your Guide to Winter Park Express

Winter Park Express Train in the Winter

Ride the Winter Park Express from Denver Union Station to Winter Park Resort during ski season.

Running January through March, you can sit back and relax on weekends and holiday-Mondays knowing that you're avoiding I-70 traffic and enjoying a stress-free scenic route that rolls through the historic Moffat Tunnel arriving at the base of Winter Park Resort at 9am, the perfect time to hop on the gondola or ride a chairlift up to ski or simply enjoy the base area Village and downtown Winter Park

No car? No problem!  Once you get here The Lift will get you around, it's our free local shuttle running from 7am to 2am in-and-around Winter Park and Fraser including Winter Park Resort.  If you're not a skier or have lodging and adventures booked downtown we've got you covered, your free and reliable chariot awaits visit for more.

Not ski season? The California Zephyr comes through Grand County on a daily basis and the Amtrak stop in Fraser is serviced by The Lift shuttle.  Learn more about the California Zephyr here.
