Getting a jones for some vintage Cat Stevens? If your lucky, this winter you might be able to listen to “Peace Train” while riding the “Ski Train” from Denver to Winter Park. The rail service had been serving the denver area faithfully for 69 years, when this spring it was announced that the service was being halted and the rail cars sold. But don’t leave the Denver area just yet, as Iowa Pacific Holdings has indicated it is interested in operating the Ski Train service beginning this winter. The operation would run out of Coors field until improvements to Union Station are completed in four years, so let’s kick off ski season right with a familiar ride up the eastern front of the Rocky Mountains, Ride On the Ski Train!
