SKI TRAIN ADDS CAR TO MEET UNION STA­TION DE­MANDS

The Denver Post - - BUSINESS - By Ja­son Blevins

As Win­ter Park pre­pares for the re­vival of the his­toric Denver ski train, the ski area and Am­trak have en­listed Cen­tu­ryLink as a spon­sor of the week­end Win­ter Park Ex­press.

With strong book­ings, the ski area and Am­trak on Thurs­day an­nounced added ca­pac­ity on the new rail ser­vice be­tween Denver’s Union Sta­tion and the Grand County ski area.

“We will be adding an ad­di­tional car to the in­ven­tory be­cause sales are strong,” Am­trak spokesman Marc Magliari said.

Three cars and one lo­co­mo­tive on the Win­ter Park Ex­press — which runs ev­ery week­end from Jan. 7 through March 26, in­clud­ing two hol­i­day Mon­days — will be wrapped in Cen­tu­ryLink lo­gos.

Tick­ets for the rail ser­vice have been on sale since Au­gust. In ad­di­tion to adding ca­pac­ity, Am­trak said it was ex­pe­dit­ing group book­ings and of­fer­ing pri­vate rail­cars with up­graded ser­vice.

Tick­ets are avail­able at am­trak.com/win­ter­park­ex­press.
