DIA's global outlook may bring international skiers
Ron Schlotthauer will watch with great anticipation in late March when Lufthansa begins direct airline service between Denver International Airport and Munich, Germany. But all the while, he'll be envisioning nonstop service to Tokyo. Either flight may someday deliver international skiers to resort towns like Steamboat. Schlotthauer, director of air service development at DIA, will speak in Steamboat on Wednesday during the Eighth annual Airline Partners' Summit hosted by Steamboat Ski & Resort Corp.
A second wave of vacationers has arrived, making for another busy weekend in Steamboat Springs. But this wave won't match what the city experienced over the Christmas holiday, which could prove to be the busiest holiday on record in the Yampa Valley.
