Rocky Mountaineer rolls out its red carpet for the nominees of the 2015 Academy Awards®

VANCOUVER, Feb. 17, 2015 /CNW/ - On Hollywood's biggest night, the Oscars®, Rocky Mountaineer will be rooting for the nominees that will go home without an award. In collaboration with Distinctive Asset's Everybody Wins at the Oscars Nominee Gift Bag, Rocky Mountaineer has invited actors, actresses, and directors to experience a life changing journey onboard its GoldLeaf Service through the majestic Canadian Rockies.

Rocky Mountaineer will roll out its red carpet for the Talent to experience Two Days, One Night or more onboard, riding Into the Woods, marveling at the Wild beauty of Western Canada, and relishing in the nostalgic excitement of train travel from their Boyhood…or girlhood.  The company hopes to see stars, the likes of Marion Cotillard, Meryl Streep, Reese Witherspoon, and Ethan Hawke onboard the award winning daylight journey in the 2015 season. 

The nominees will receive VIP treatment onboard Rocky Mountaineer's luxurious GoldLeaf Service to iconic destinations such as, Jasper, Lake Louise, and Banff, Alberta. As the train travels through some of the most pristine areas of Western Canada, inaccessible by other modes of transportation, the VIP guests will have a chance to relax without the stress of paparazzis in the background.
