Steamboat’s winter air program continues to grow with the addition of nonstop flights from Austin (AUS) and Kansas City (MCI) to Steamboat/Hayden Airport (HDN) on ViaAir for the 2017/18 ski and snowboard season. The weekly flights will operate Wednesdays, Saturdays and Sundays from Dec. 13 to April 1. The 2017/18 air program increases nonstop markets served to 14 major cities in the fifth consecutive year of nonstop market growth.

“Working with ViaAir and Embark provides Steamboat a completely new, affordable resource for bringing winter guests to Ski Town, U.S.A.®,” said Rob Perlman, president and chief operating officer for Steamboat Ski & Resort Corp. “Providing a nonstop route for guests from Austin and Kansas City, along with unbeatable introductory fares, means more powderhounds can enjoy Steamboat’s world-famous Champagne Powder® snow this season.”

In addition to the new flights, United Airlines will expand its service from existing markets this winter featuring three daily flights from Denver plus a fourth flight during the holidays and from Feb. 15 to April 2. United also expands to daily service from Chicago throughout the season. American Airlines will bring passengers into Steamboat from Dallas/Ft. Worth on bigger planes during the holiday season from Dec. 15 to Jan. 7 with two flights during the week and three flights on the weekends. The combination of new ViaAir flights, additional United flights and Alaska Airlines adding Sundays out of San Diego represents a 5 percent increase in the Steamboat airline program from the 2016/17 winter season.

Alaska, American, Delta, United Airlines and ViaAir provide nonstop access from 14 major markets across the U.S. as well as convenient connections from more than 300 airports worldwide, making Steamboat one of the most easily accessed resorts in the Rocky Mountains.
