A new frontier

Dear Editor:

The excitement surrounding today’s announcement at the Pepsi Center is felt all over town. We would like to extend our tremendous appreciation to Frontier Airlines for selecting the Aspen/Snowmass area as a Lynx Aviation route from Denver.

Your track record as an airline that takes care of its vacationing and business passengers is stellar. You fly on time, your completion factor is excellent and you have a great sense of humor with brilliant advertising. Frontier Airlines is quite literally, as your spokescat, Larry the Lynx might say, “front-of-the-pack.” We believe Aspen/Snowmass also is front-of-the-pack, which makes this a perfect fit. Flying in and out of Aspen/Snowmass will be a great perk for our mutual customers, and for all of us as business partners.

It’s a thrilling time here in Snowmass Village. Not only are locals and guests enjoying record snowfalls, they’re also witnessing a tremendous renaissance of the resort. Snowmass is the “buzz” throughout the Colorado ski industry. Convenient 95 percent ski-in, ski-out lodging has been an attractive advantage this town has owned for decades, but a new Base Village, world-class Treehouse Kids Adventure Center, new gondolas and continuous improvements on a mountain boasting over 3,100 acres of diverse terrain, enhanced lodging and retail, and increasingly popular events and activities for every age and interest deliver a phenomenal experience for guests ” both winter and summer.

And, with your announcement, it all just got even better! Providing additional access through Frontier Airlines will deliver new heights ” both in air and on mountain ” for more people to experience your convenient service to this four mountain destination.

The Snowmass Village community looks forward to warmly greeting you with its small-town charm upon your arrival ” that’s how we do things here. Welcome to your new home.

Mayor Doug Mercatoris, Town Manager Russell Forrest and the Snowmass Village Town Council
