Southwest to offer new nonstop flight to Colorado ski destination from Austin

Another direct flight to a Colorado ski destination will soon be available to Austin travelers.

Starting Jan. 7, 2023, Southwest Airlines will offer seasonal nonstop service between Austin and Montrose, Colorado—the gateway to ski areas in Telluride and Crested Butte—on Saturdays.

This will be the only direct flight offered from Austin to Montrose. But just earlier this month, American Airlines added a direct flight to fellow ski destination Vail, Colorado that will start in December.
