Alaska to Launch Los Angeles-Gunnison Service, Resume Seasonal Steamboat Springs and Sun Valley Flights
Alaska Airlines announced a new route linking Los Angeles to Gunnison/Crested Butte, Colorado, as well as the resumption of seasonal flights to Steamboat Springs and Sun Valley.
Passengers on these flights, which go to some of the Western United States’ best ski destinations, will get free skiing by showing their boarding pass at ten resorts including Big Sky Resort, Mammoth Mountain Resort, Steamboat Ski & Resort, and Sun Valley Resort.
Alaska is also offering a third round-trip ticket to any of these destinations at no charge (except for applicable taxes) after purchasing two tickets to any qualifying ski destination.
Service to Gunnison–Crested Butte Regional Airport will commence on December 16, while seasonal service to Steamboat Springs and Sun Valley’s Friedman Memorial airports will resume on December 12 and 17, respectively.
Flights to Sun Valley and Gunnison will be operated by Alaska’s Horizon Air subsidiary, using 76-seat Bombardier Q400 aircraft. Steamboat Springs service will be operated by SkyWest Airlines using 70-seat CRJ-700 regional jets.
