Gardner Welcomes Colorado Transportation Commission’s Approval of Ski Train

Washington, DC – U.S. Senator Cory Gardner (R-CO) today celebrated the Colorado Transportation Commission’s decision to approve the necessary funds for the Winter Park Ski Train. Once the necessary upgrades are completed, passengers will be able to take the train from downtown Denver to Winter Park Ski Resort. 

“Any Coloradan or visitor to the state making the trip to the mountains on a weekend to ski, hike, or do anything else the Rockies have to offer has often run into one common sight: brake lights. Interstate 70 connecting Colorado’s Front Range to our mountain attractions is simply a corridor where demand outpaces supply,” said Gardner. “While the ski train will not resolve all of the I-70 congestion issues we face in getting to the mountains, I am pleased the local and state entities involved decided the Ski Train must be part of a broader solution.”
