Interesting statistics. I wish there was a timeline showing relative position over time. Certainly Denver has always been number 1, but has Grand Junction slipped to number four because of competition from Montrose? And if so, do we know why?

@Claudette—I’m not sure, but I believe Montrose is somewhat subsidized by the Telluride ski area.  I don’t know whether that includes gate fees or just guaranteeing a certain number of seats whether they’re sold or not.  Whatever it is, it’s usually cheaper to fly out of Montrose than here.  Eagle/Vail is often cheaper too—they have some direct flights to large cities that we don’t offer here.
