RM extends first US season

Rocky Mountaineer is extending the inaugural season of its new route in the United States, Rockies to the Red Rocks, by four weeks due to strong sales from the domestic US market.

Peter Armstrong, founder and interim CEO of Rocky Mountaineer says some high-demand dates are nearing capacity.

Rockies to the Red Rocks is a two-day train journey between Moab, Utah and Denver, Colorado with an overnight stay in Glenwood Springs, Colorado.

The preview season for the route starts on 15 August 2021 and, with the extension, will run until 19 November 2021. With some departure dates nearing capacity, Rocky Mountaineer is adding rail cars to increase the guest capacity on all dates and adding 16 new departure dates to the preview season. 

The company says New Zealand agents and clients are unlikely to be able to take advantage of this season, but should be aware the journeys start again in April 2022.
