A new partnership between Winter Park Resort, Amtrak and Lyft are making it a little easier for skiers and boarders to reach the mountains this winter. Lyft, a nation-wide rideshare company, signed on to be the presenting sponsor of the 2018 Amtrak Winter Park Express and will offer discounted rides to and from Denver Union Station to catch the Amtrak up to the resort.
"Riding the Winter Park Express to the mountains is a beloved Colorado tradition so we are thrilled to be the presenting sponsor just as we launch Lyft in the mountains," said Gabe Cohen, general manager for Lyft Colorado. "This year skiers and snowboarders will be able to get an affordable and reliable ride to Denver Union Station to ride the train to and from the slopes."
New customers can use the promo code "AMTRAKLYFT" to receive $5 off their first four rides and can select from larger vehicles to carry their boards and skis. Lyft passengers can now also order a Lyft from the Amtrak mobile app.
Seasonal service will begin on Jan. 5 and will run every Saturday and Sunday through March 25. The service will also be available on three additional Fridays on Jan. 5, Feb. 2 and March 2.
