STEAMBOAT SPRINGS, Colo. (AP) — Skiers soon will have three more options to fly directly to a Colorado ski resort.

The Steamboat Pilot and Today reports JetBlue for the first time will offer direct flights from Boston Logan International to Steamboat Ski Resort in Steamboat Springs, plus a weekly flight from Fort Lauderdale-Hollywood International Airport and another twice-weekly flight from Long Beach Airport.

All three flights will operate Dec. 15 through March 30 beginning in the 2018-19 ski season. The Boston and Long Beach flights will operate Saturdays and Wednesdays. The Fort Lauderdale flight will operate on Saturdays only.

Skiers in Southern California now have the option of three cities of origin and three different airlines to get to Steamboat. United Airlines flew daily roundtrips to Steamboat from Los Angeles International in 2017-18 and Alaska Airlines flew three weekly roundtrips from San Diego.
