The eastbound California Zephyr, running ahead of schedule, pops out of the east portal of the Moffat Tunnel. After the train clears the west switch, the fans in the tunnel will turn on to vent the exhaust from the tunnel. Once that process is complete, the (special) Ski Train will be able to load its passengers at Winter Park, just over six miles to the west.
