Open-Air Gondola

Open-Air Gondola

Available May 5- October 27, 2018
Travel in an open-air gondola and be even closer to the sights and sounds of this historic adventure. Bench-style seating facing out accommodates five across. Because of the unpredictable mountain climate and the increase in elevation from Durango to Silverton, we strongly encourage you to dress in layers of clothing. Silverton (9305') usually averages about 10 degrees cooler than Durango (6512').  Sunglasses are highly recommended to protect eyes from possible cinders in the air.  Safety glasses are available for purchase in the gift shop and onboard the train.

Silverton Train (May 5 - October 27, 2018):
Adult age 12 and over: $95*     Child ages 4-11: $59*

Skyway Tour (Bus/train combination) (May 5- October 27, 2018):
Adult age 12 and over: $115*     Child age 4-11: $79*

Children 3 years and under: No charge if not occupying a seat.
*Fares subject to 7% historic preservation fee.

Be sure to check out the great savings by purchasing a Season Pass! You'll get unlimited Standard-class passage on all our regular trains, 10% off full-fares on premium-class cars, and receive 10% discounts on selected non-licensed special event trains! (Licensed events such as Polar Express and Peanuts™ events are excluded.) As an added bonus, backpack fees are waived for Season Pass holders! Great for those who need to pack extra gear for overnighting in the wilderness.
