Ski Subsidies

DENVER (AP) - Colorado ski resorts are paying more to airlines for consistent flights into regional mountain airports.

Airlines say they need the subsidies because of rising fuel prices and financially strapped vacationers.

The Telluride Tourism Board is helping Crested Butte Mountain Resort with a $650,000 revenue-guarantee deal with Allegiant Air to bring twice-weekly flights from Oakland and Phoenix to Montrose all winter.

According to the Denver Post (http://tinyurl.com/bawh3t7 ), Steamboat, Crested Butte and Vail are also paying more to airlines for consistent flights.
