The Moffat Tunnel has a great story and is interesting to go up to the entrance and see. You can walk right up to it from The Village at Winter Park.

Wonderful ride up from Denver. The "hosts", conductors, everyone were incredibly . The moffet tunnel is the end of the line, and Ta da there you are in the middle of everything, snow, skiers, shops and restaurants.

I have been coming to this train site since the 1960's. It is so utterly AMAZING to hear the heavy rubber curtains drop and the fans start up in the under mountain tunnel. By doing this, the tunnel is closed off and the fans in...More
