Just booked LAX-SLC for $59 one-way for December. Found LAX-DEN for $44 all throughout January and February 2017.
Two free checked-in baggage allowance.
Jump on it!
They run this sale twice a year. Good deal. PHX-DEN is $41 and has normal times available. I can consistently find this route for around $40 most the time but the times are not desirable (first early morning and last late night flight).
PHX-SLC for $54 is a steal as that route is never on sale.
I'm trying to book something for Den. in Jan. if it works out. Great deals!!
Rentals will probably be high this far out. If you want to rent an SUV in the winter then you are going to pay for it. I always rent a car and have unique ways of getting my skis inside or use a traveling ski rack, especially since they are 180-190. The key is finding a rental with a pass through if they have it.
Dang, too many moving parts for me to get to Den via LAX this year. Only 90.00 RT if I could have gotten my dates worked out but couldn't Maybe next yeat. I think they run this similar promotion every year for Jan-Feb time frame(I did Taos this year in Feb.).
Ended up taking a trip to Portland. Mt Hood is close but NO skiing on this trip. Only vacation and sightseeing with the wife
