Take your Colorado ski trip on a ski train. Leave the car at home and hop aboard the Amtrak California Zephyr. Take advantage of the Snowball Express Vacation package, which brings skiers to the slopes of Winter Park. The train originates in Chicago and makes its way through Illinois, Iowa, and Nebraska, with stops throughout all three states, including the cities of Omaha and Lincoln.

Roll along the countryside and enjoy the scenery on your way to your ski vacation. The Snowball Express package includes round trip coach seats with daily service to Winter Park, four nights' lodging, and four days of lift tickets. Package pricing starts at $674 per adult out of Chicago. The price for a child is $262. Prices go down as the train gets closer to Colorado.

The prices are subject to change and based upon availability. Pricing is based on double occupancy with two adults in a one-bedroom condo, located in the Town of Winter Park. Rates can vary based on arrival date and the lodging unit you have booked. Upgrades are available to a sleeper car. Blackout dates include Feb. 12 and 15, and April 2, 4, and 5.

Winter Park is 67 miles from Denver, celebrating 70 years of skiing and riding this season.
