The Best Travel Deal in Ski Country

Two for One Airline Tickets


TELLURIDE, Colorado (December 26, 2012) –Skiers and riders in Phoenix and the 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 Telluride Ski 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 Telluride Montrose Regional Airport (MTJ). This is a special that brings unmatched 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 one-way fare 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)*. The flights into MTJ started December 15 and conclude April 3. Tickets must be purchased by January 31, 2013 for the Two for One offer for use by April 3, 2013. This offer is based upon availability.

With the collaboration of Telluride Ski Resort and Crested Butte Mountain Resort launching the Ultimate 6 Pass, a 6-day pass that is good for 3 days of skiing and riding at each resort, guests can now use the centrally located airport for their travel arrangements and have the opportunity to ski both areas in one vacation. 


“This is a unique opportunity to experience Southwest Colorado skiing at two of Colorado’s top resorts in a single trip,” said Ken Stone, Executive Director at Telluride Ski Resort. “Combine this with the low cost of Allegiant and the fact that we will pay for every other airline ticket and you have the absolute best deal in ski country.”
