Capitol Corridor Sponsors Schools on Skates in San Jose

Schools on Skates

On Wednesday, December 17, Capitol Corridor hosted students from Trace Elementary School at San Jose Downtown Ice as part of the holiday rink’s Schools on Skates program each season. Hundreds of students are sponsored by organizations such as Capitol Corridor. “We are thrilled to welcome Trace Elementary School to celebrate the holiday season at Downtown Ice,” said Capitol Corridor’s Managing Director David Kutrosky. The students got the chance to glide around 32 glimmering palm trees and view the “halo” light show with continuously changing colors and patterns. CCJPA boardmember and San Jose Councilwoman, Rose Herrera, joined in at the ice skating festivities. San Jose Downtown Ice is open through January 11, 2015, and you can show your December or January Capitol Corridor train ticket for $2 off general admission.

Take Capitol Corridor to Lake Tahoe for a Winter Escape

Lake Tahoe

Lake Tahoe is a popular destination at all times of the year, but especially during the winter months when resorts open for the ski season, and the mountains transform into a winter wonderland. With fresh snow now on the slopes, there’s no better time to visit for a weekend winter getaway! You can take Capitol Corridor to various stops in the Sierra, including South Lake Tahoe and Truckee on the North Shore, for a trip free from the stress of driving in traffic and snow.
