Spring is in the air and here in Jackson we are starting to feel a slight change in the weather. During the last week of January Jackson broke out of the 30’s for the first time since November. It is amazing how nice it can feel after the long winter. That is not to say that skin season is over yet. Jackson Hole is blessed with some of the best skiing in the west. The base snow depth is above 100 inches and total snowfall at Rendezvous Bowl is already over 400 inches. We are anticipating a very busy spring ski season with flights mostly booked.
Frontier Airlines announced last week (Feb. 14th) that it would begin flying three planes a day into Jackson Hole starting in mid-May. The airline is planning on using a 70 seat Q-400 turboprop with flights to Denver. This is great news as it should increase competition with United and will lower prices on flights to many destinations.
As posted in the Jackson Hole News and Guide on Wednesday Feb. 20 – Here are some sample prices:
|Salt Lake City||$238|
This will no doubt help increase visitors to the valley but on a more important level really help the locals find cheaper flights to other areas in the country. After or during 6 months of winter many of us are looking for sun shine or the city life. Great move by the Jackson Hole Airport to secure the deal.
