Up In The Air

Plans to combine the forces of Crested Butte and Telluride to draw greater flight traffic to nearby Montrose Regional Airport have failed due to higher than expected costs. The two resorts had been working on a "regionalization" effort to focus airline traffic to Montrose, but the premium for revenue guarantees for airlines like United was too high, so Crested Butte will continue to rely on flights to Gunnison for area visitors.
