I am trying to put together a trip to Utah with a buddy for the end of March or beginning of April. His wife is pregnant with their second child and my wife is in grad school and we will most likely try to start a family soon. It's likely that this will be the last chance for us to do this sort of thing for quite a while but the cost of a plane ticket is making it almost impossible to sell to my wife. I've checked airports as far away as Chicago and no matter what I try the tickets are almost $500. Add in the stupid fees for baggage is it quickly goes to $600+. On the other hand I can book a flight to Florida two weeks from now for under $200.
So what are you paying to fly to the mountains these days?
