“I feel like someone just shot Santa Claus in the face.”

by

Anschutz Company has sold the Ski Train and local lobbyist Benjamin Waters feels “like someone just shot Santa Claus in the face.”   The Ski Train is a train that takes skiers from Denver’s Union Station to Winter Park, a ski resort favored by locals 56 miles from the city.

SOLD!

SOLD!

Anschutz Company spokesman Jim Monaghan said that the train had operated at a loss for the last 21 years.

Now I realize that this is an odd thing for me to blog about considering that the Ski Train was owned by a private company, but just for a second we realize that lobbyists around the nation are real people.  Sometimes they are the scapegoats for political expediency, but sometimes they just really care about a local tradition.
