Alaska Airlines Kicks Off The Ski Season With More Nonstop Flights And Free Skiing Throughout The Western United States And Canada

SEATTLE, Nov. 6, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Alaska Airlines is rolling out great deals for skiers, snowboarders and those seeking a fun winter getaway, with new flights and discounts at major winter recreation areas throughout the West.

Alaska is starting new nonstop flights between Portland and Reno/Tahoe, Calif., on Nov. 8, between Seattle and Steamboat Springs, Colo., on Dec. 18, and between San Diego and Mammoth, Calif., on Dec. 19. This is addition to the airline's increase in flights between Los Angeles and Mammoth, starting Dec. 1, and seasonal service from Seattle and Los Angeles to Sun Valley, Idaho, starting Dec. 14.

"With Alaska Airlines' new service this winter, we now offer the most nonstop flights to the most winter resorts from the Pacific Northwest," said Joe Sprague, vice president of marketing. "And now our travelers can receive discounts and even ski free at select resort partners when they fly Alaska Airlines."

Travelers simply need to show their Alaska Airlines boarding pass to receive discounts, which range from free lift tickets when accompanied with a mountain stay to free night skiing, free ski or board rental and other offers. Offers vary depending on the resort. Participating resort partners include: Eaglecrest ( Alaska), Mammoth Mountain and Squaw Valley (Calif.), Steamboat (Colo.), Sun Valley ( Idaho), Big Sky and Whitefish (Mont.), Mount Bachelor (Ore.), Mission Ridge (Wash.), and Big White ( Canada).

Discount offers are good today through the end of the ski season, traditionally mid-April. For complete rules and details, visit or call 1-800-ALASKAAIR (1-800-252-7522 or TTY/TDD line 1-800-392-0228).

Several of the flights will be operated by Alaska Airlines' regional partners Horizon Air, using 76-seat Bombardier Q400s, and SkyWest Airlines, using 70-seat Bombardier CRJ-700 regional jets. When flying Horizon- and SkyWest-operated flights, customers can enjoy free soft drinks and Starbucks coffee, A la Cart planeside baggage service, and complimentary Northwest wine and microbrews for passengers 21 years and older.
