WINTER ON DONNER PASS

WINTER ON DONNER PASS

Journey high into California's Sierra Nevada Mountains for a stunning look at winter operations over Donner Pass. As Pacific storms dump heavy snow, Union Pacific battles to keep trains rolling.

Get a taste of what it is like to be trackside in the midst of winter's fury. Long stack trains, heavy manifests, and Amtrak's California Zephyr share the rails with an army of snow fighting equipment including flangers, spreaders, and the mighty rotaries.

Beginning at Colfax, trains climb toward the snow zone at Blue Cañon, then on to Truckee on rails once covered almost completely by snow sheds. Extra time is spent near the summit at Soda Springs and Norden where man and machine are put to the test against the elements. This is mountain railroading and snow fighting rolled into one exciting presentation!

Shot over four separate winters including the big snow of 2011, this is your ticket to "Winter on Donner Pass!"
