    I'll open a shuttle service between Caledonia County Airport and Burke Mtn if the price is right

    What is the transportation to ski resort from destination airport?

    We fly multi-engine airplanes. The model of the airplane varies with the number of passengers.
    A typical flight cost from Long Island airports to Rutland, VT in a 4 passengers plane is $1800-$2000.
    Normally, our passengers make their own ground transportation, car rental or use of local shuttles.

    I hope this helps.

    I actually rode the Gondola at Stowe about six years ago with the operations manager of a ski destination air charter operation. It was Boston based, but also flew out of a few other airports. IIRC Portsmouth, NH was one of their take off points and I believe TF Green in RI as well. Similar sized jets as you describe flying into Morrisville airport where their clients had their own vehicle parked there to use for the week/weekend. They said business was quite good even coming out of the great recession. If I had a 7 figure income and could cut the journey from 4 hours down 2 or less for roughly 30-40K a season for my family? I'd probably consider it.

    A good friend of mine is the caretaker for an estate on Lake Winnipesaukee. The family flies charter into Laconia from PA when they visit. Old coal money family.

    Shouldn't this thread be moved to Skiing On the Cheap? Those charter rates are at least 2% less than other quotes I have received.

    Comment of the day!

    I think this may be a Russian scammer. In Soviet Russia sking slops are very steap plains to get u to mountain bery cheep.. We fly by slops push you outof de plane. Highly recommended you fold own parachute.
    I have always loved blizzards, if only because of the driving experience - which is definitely an acquired taste.
