Screen Shot 2017-02-08 at 18.08.42

Every month we curate the best blog posts and Instagrams from our Lonely Planet Pathfinders.

This month’s top video comes from Juliana Broste, aka Traveling Jules, who takes us all aboard the Winter Park Express Ski Train to the Winter Park Resort in Denver, Colorado – a city that just happens to be in our Best in the US list for 2017.

Winter Park Express Ski Train – Traveling Jules

Choo Choo! This winter, the historic Winter Park Express Ski Train returned to Colorado, offering skiers, snowboarders and travellers a direct link to the mountains. It’s a traffic-free route that skips the weekend ski traffic, departing Denver Union Station and arriving in Winter Park Resort two hours later.

Hop aboard with me as I embark on a snowboarding adventure, discovering a mountain that offers over 3000 acres of terrain. Groomers, parks, deeps, steeps, trees and bumps await – plus beautiful views of the Rocky Mountains.

Hats off to Jules for creating this fun yet informative vlog-style video in just one day – you’ve got us reaching for our snow gear!

There was also a great video submitted by David and Lina from Divergent Travelers, who had us dreaming of swapping our laptops for paradise in the Philippines.

Thank you to all the Pathfinders who submitted videos this month – keep your eyes peeled on our Thorn Tree forum where we’ll post the next submission call-out.
