Telluride Airport to Close April 7

The Telluride Regional Airport will be closed from April 7 until November 2, for runway reconstruction. Flights will be diverted to Durango, Cortez, Montrose and other nearby airports.

The resort recently announced that it was extending its close date by a week, until April 12. So if you have a ski trip planned during this time, you should check with your air carrier.

The bright side is that the respective drives are scenic, so you’ll have a tourist excursion of sorts added to your ski vacation. And of course, a nice, new runway come next season.
