To celebrate American Airlines’ expanded service into the Aspen/Pitkin County Airport (ASE), Aspen Snowmass is offering a complimentary day-of-arrival lift ticket to customers who purchase an eligible flight during the promotional booking period now– March 9, 2018 with travel between February 19 and April 15, 2018.

Located just three miles from downtown Aspen and six miles from Snowmass Village, the Aspen Pitkin County Airport is super convenient and allows for more time on the slopes.

American Airlines now offers up to eight daily nonstop flights from four hubs during the winter, including up to four daily from Dallas/Ft. Worth (DFW) with daily service now scheduled to continue year-round.

American also offers up to two daily nonstop flights from Chicago/O’Hare (ORD), plus daily nonstop flights from Los Angeles (LAX), and new daily nonstop service from Phoenix (PHX).

With five of American’s 7-8 daily flights into ASE now scheduled to arrive prior to 1:00pm, guests can easily make plans to hit the slopes the day they arrive.

The lift ticket is only valid for the day-of-arrival and may be subject to verification. Eligible customers may redeem by sharing their booking confirmation receipt at any Aspen Snowmass ticket office.

What’s the Deal?

With *flight arrivals from 10am to 1pm, skiers can get in at least a half-day skiing thanks to this promotion. 

The best bet for ambitious skiers from the New York region is a 6am flight from LGA connecting with the DFW flight that lands at 12:18pm at ASE. 

A more leisurely connection from the metropolitan area is through ORD on the flight that lands at 12:56pm, which requires a more reasonable 7:30am departure from LGA.

* Two flights from DFW are scheduled to arrive at 10:18am and 12:18pm daily.

* One daily flight from PHX is scheduled to arrive at 11:38am.

* One daily flight from LAX is scheduled to arrive at 11:49am.

* One daily flight from ORD is scheduled to arrive at 12:56pm.
