When I flew from Boston to Whitehorse back in 2011, the cheapest airfare I could find was well over $1,200 and that was just me.....and that was just the beginning.
Actually the plan is to return to Alaska this year with some (if not all the same) people as last September. The $1,500.00 will be a nice prize but the rail fare will be used to supply travel to all or most of the group that can make it.
