said a resurrected Ski Train was no sure thing.

But a press release issued today says details for a new "Winter Park Express" including ticketing availability, schedules and fares, are set to be announced tomorrow. 

The train, which ran from Denver's Union Station to Winter Park for decades, shut down in 2009 after its private owners said it cost too much.

But a pair of one-off runs in 2015 were hugely popular. The resort, Amtrak and Union Pacific have been working to restore regularly scheduled service since then.
