Ski Train to Curry sold out

October 22, 2010 

SKIING -- Months before it rolls down the tracks, the Ski Train to Curry has sold out.

The last $100 ticket for the March 19 trip was sold Monday. The ski train is coming off a one-year hiatus prompted by severe cutbacks and layoffs at the Alaska Railroad.

The Nordic Ski Association of Anchorage is keeping a waiting list.

Southcentral ski trains date to the 1940s. This year there will be 14 passenger cars, accommodating 670 skiers.
