Delta Air Lines is making preparations for a busy winter vacation season this year, announcing its biggest-ever schedule to domestic ski resorts with an almost 10 percent increase in seat capacity compared to last year.

The Atlanta-based airline’s winter schedule for 2024-25—which runs from December 21, 2024, until March 30, 2025—will include more flights from Los Angeles International Airport (LAX) to popular winter destinations than ever before.

Delta will also offer ample service to key resorts from its hubs of Minneapolis-Saint Paul (MSP), Salt Lake City (SLC), and Atlanta (ATL) itself.

From Los Angeles, which Delta is dubbing ‘The Gateway to Snow-Capped Peaks,’ the airline is offering 25 percent more seats to ski destinations this winter compared to last, including new daily flights to Jackson Hole (JAC) in Wyoming and a new Saturday-only service to Sun Valley (SUN) in Idaho.

In addition to these new routes, Delta will continue to operate its year-round daily flights to Aspen (ASE) and will resume seasonal daily flights to Bozeman (BZE) in Montana and Vail (EGE) in Colorado.

From Minneapolis-Saint Paul, Delta is resuming two routes that proved popular last winter—its Saturday services to Steamboat Springs (HDN) in Colorado and Jackson Hole—but is significantly boosting frequency with daily services for both routes. These routes will add to Delta’s twice-daily year-round service to Bozeman.

Delta is also boosting flights to Bozeman from its primary hub in Atlanta with the addition of a second daily service this winter. This will add to twice-daily flights from ATL to Aspen and Vail and daily services to Steamboat Springs, Jackson Hole, and Colorado’s Montrose/Telluride (MTJ).

Finally, Delta is strengthening its growing presence in Salt Lake City this winter, offering three daily flights to Bozeman, Jackson Hole, and Sun Valley.

“Delta is creating essential connections from our growing hub and state-of-the-art facilities in Los Angeles and across the U.S. to bring premier ski resorts within easy reach this winter,” said Joe Esposito, Senior Vice President of Network Planning at Delta.

“With our largest winter schedule, customers have more choices than ever, with up to 190 weekly flights to places our customers want to fly to most, paired with premium services and amenities our customers always enjoy.”

Frequent flyers can also earn miles when booking ski resorts, hotels, rental properties, and car hire via Delta Stays and Delta Car Rentals. According to the airline, SkyMiles members will earn 2 miles per $1 spent on these bookings, while miles can be redeemed on mountainside accommodation through Delta Stays.
