2011-2012 Winter Airline Schedule
Access to Crested Butte this winter is quick and easy thanks to direct, non-stop flights into the Gunnison/Crested Butte (GUC) Regional Airport from several major cities across the country. Crested Butte Mountain Resort (CBMR) and the Gunnison County Rural Transportation Association (RTA) have diligently negotiated air service for the 2011-2012 winter season from three major carriers: American Airlines, Continental Airlines and United Airlines, with flights from Dallas (DFW), Houston (IAH) and Denver (DEN). The full direct service schedule begins December 15th & 16th.
Local and discounted fares have been announced. Please be sure to take advantage of these discounted fares. The more people use our direct flights, the better it is for our overall air service program. The first is a holiday fare sale through American Airlines and the second is the standard United local?s fare which has been extended through December 2012. More detailed information about both deals is posted at www.flygcb.com.
? American Airlines is offering holiday airfares for travel originating from the Gunnison-Crested Butte Regional Airport (GUC) starting at $198* per round trip ($99 each way based on a required round-trip, economy-class purchase). Required dates of travel from GUC are Dec. 15 ? 22, 2011, with return to GUC from Dec. 31, 2011 ? Jan. 7, 2012. Tickets must be purchased at least 14 days prior to departure, and fare examples do not include taxes and fees.
? Zipline Tour - The new Crested Butte Zipline Tour opened June 28 and is now up and running for the winter season. The guided tour includes five zip lines and three suspended bridges that have been uniquely adapted to accommodate winter operations. The Crested Butte Zipline Tour is available during the summer, fall and winter seasons and has been welcomed with resounding success. To date, we?ve already had 3,225 zippers enjoy the tour and look forward to offering it for our winter guests as well for $59 per person. The winter operations will begin at the yurt located at the base of the zipline and right in front of the kids? learning area by the Whetstone building. At the yurt, guests will get fitted for their harnesses where the necessary safety instructions explained. Each tour will then make their way down to the Peachtree lift for a ride up to the top of the zipline and enjoy the approximate 2-hour zipping experience. We hope you enjoy this added amenity to the resort.
