Keep checking airline prices. Maybe it's the fact you are flying in from Ohio, but I have never paid more the $450 for a plane ticket to anywhere I have gone in the U.S. our of Montrose. Although, my sister and her family have been looking at coming out after Christmas, and tickets are much higher than normal for then too. Winter is usually cheaper because we have more carriers. I think they are supposed to announce another one here in the next couple of weeks.
