Colorado Ski Train Set To Begin Running Under New Operator (VIDEO)

After some uncertainty earlier in the year, the venerable tradition that is the Colorado Ski Train is back on track. Now called the Rio Grande Scenic Ski Train and operated by the Rio Grande Scenic Railroad Company, is expected to begin running on December 27.

From The Denver Post:

Rio Grande Scenic Railroad's passenger cars and locomotives will be used, and tickets will range from $49 round trip for a coach-car seat to $99 round trip for a "premium" ticket -- an upper-level seat in the company's dome cars, which will also offer limited food and beverage service.

Rio Grande Scenic released a youtube video previewing the trains.
