If you love to ski (or just après ski and drink hot toddies all day), this is a pretty exciting development—Taos, New Mexico wants you to come visit so badly that they’ve started their own nonstop airline from Austin and Dallas.

This is not some crappy bargain airline that charges you for breathing and using the bathroom on the plane, it’s a high-style charter jet for a super reasonable price! Tickets start at just $400 roundtrip and the airline will be making trips from December through March.

Taos Air is being touted as the fastest and easiest route to the Rockies. There are no baggage fees for up to two bags, free changes if you make them at least 24-hours in advance, and late check-in up to 30 minutes before time of departure. It’s like going back in time to when air travel was civilized and enjoyable! This is a public charter, and that also means no TSA checkpoints.

You can book your flight by clicking here or calling 833-359-8267.

The charter is getting a lot of buzz, so you might want to plan that ski trip before they sell out for the season. That beautiful powder is calling your name. We love Austin, but this is worth skipping town for.
