MT. CRESTED BUTTE, Colo. – Jan. 3 – Skiers and riders in Phoenix and the San Francisco Bay Area can now take advantage of the best travel deals imaginable in ski country, two-for-one airline tickets straight to the slopes of Crested Butte Mountain Resort.
The Telluride Montrose Regional Air Organization (TMRAO), Telluride Ski Resort (TSG) and Crested Butte Mountain Resort (CBMR) put the deal together with Allegiant Air to offer two-for-one airline tickets from Phoenix-Mesa airport (IWA) and Oakland International Airport (OAK) non-stop to the Montrose Regional Airport (MTJ). This is a special that brings incredible value to a skiing vacation.
“To my knowledge, there is no program in the industry where travelers can get two for one airline tickets and skiing opportunities at two of the country’s top resorts,” said Michael Martelon, President & CEO of the Telluride Tourism Board. “It’s unheard of to have this kind of option, and we’re excited to be able to offer it.”
This winter, Allegiant is offering fares from Phoenix starting as low as $46.99 one-way ($93.98 round-trip)*. Flights from Oakland start at $49.99 one-way ($99.98 round-trip)*.
