Joint Statement by Winter Park Resort and Amtrak

Winter Park Resort and Amtrak plan to resume Winter Park Express service in 2022.

Amtrak and the resort will use the 2020-21 season to look for ways to make the Winter Park Express even better when it relaunches. Amtrak has been reducing the number of seats sold on each train to enable distancing, a best-practice that will likely continue into the upcoming winter season. Amtrak and Winter Park Resort evaluated seating options on the Winter Park Express and agreed that, with social distancing requirements, it was not possible to operate the train successfully this season.

The resort and Amtrak thank our customers and look forward to welcoming them back again in the 2022 season.

The year-round California Zephyr stops in nearby Fraser, CO, operating between Chicago and the San Francisco Bay, via Denver and Salt Lake City. A shuttle operates between the Fraser station and Winter Park Resort.
