Colorado has commuter airlines and regional airports throughout the state, making it easier for winter visitors to get to their favorite resort. Some offer even more. The Telluride/Montrose Regional Airport has direct flights from Chicago and Los Angeles with seven other non-stop destinations.

Direct flights from Los Angeles to Grand Junction make it easier to get to Powderhorn Resort.

Steamboat has a new Web site to help travelers chart the most affordable and efficient flights to Ski Town U.S.A. from major cities across the United States. The Steamboat/Hayden airport has recently expanded, and there are non-stop direct flights from nine U.S. cities. Steamboat also offers the Kids Fly Free program which gives kids 12 and under a free airline ticket when families book a two-night stay through Steamboat Central Reservations.

Crested Butte has the Friends & Family Fly Free program. Buy two airline tickets and the third is free. A four-night minimum stay is required. Alpine Express takes you from the airport to the mountain. Monarch Mountain is also accessible from the Gunnison/Crested Butte Airport. Monarch is the closest resort to Colorado Springs, so many visitors fly into that airport.

The closest airport to Purgatory at Durango Mountain Resort and Silverton Mountain is the Durango/LaPlata Airport. The City of Durango helps provide shuttle service to the slopes of Purgatory.
