SEATTLE, June 8, 2016 /PRNewswire/ — Alaska Airlines today announced it will start new nonstop service between San Diego and Hayden/Steamboat Springs, Colorado. Just in time for next season’s ski season, the seasonal service will begin Dec. 17, 2016, and run through March 25, 2017.

This represents an expansion of service beyond the nonstop flights operated between Seattle and Hayden/Steamboat Springs, and is a testament to the popularity of the area’s ski resort. In addition, it adds yet another winter resort destination for San Diegans and complements existing nonstop service to popular resorts including California’s Mammoth Mountain Ski Resort and many other resorts near Salt Lake City.

"Just as people begin to make vacation plans for the upcoming ski season, Alaska Airlines has introduced the first-ever nonstop service between San Diego and Steamboat Springs," said John Kirby, the airline’s vice president of capacity planning.
