Horizon Air announced Monday it is expanding air service to the Mammoth Mountain resort for the upcoming snow season, which includes adding a second daily nonstop from Los Angeles.
During last year's inaugural season of service, thousands of Southern Californians took advantage of Horizon's 70-minute flight from Los Angeles instead of five hours or more of driving, said Dan Russo, Horizon's vice president of marketing and communications.
The Mammoth winter season flight schedule will run from Dec. 17 through April 11. Fares start at $49 each way from Reno, $69 from San Jose or Los Angeles, $144 from Portland and $149 from Seattle.
Horizon will operate all flights to Mammoth with 76-seat Bombardier Q400s, a twin-engine turboprop aircraft.
