Winter is still a ways away, but parts of the country are already seeing snowfall. If you spend your winters ripping up ski slopes, that should be music to your ears. American Airlines is making it a little easier for folks to get out and go skiing or snowboarding this year, offering discounted fares to ski resorts across the nation.

Currently, the airline is offering cheap trips to places like Aspen, Colorado; Jackson Hole, Wyoming; Salt Lake City, Utah; Bozeman, Montana; Reno, Nevada, and more. Most sale fares appear to be flying out of warmer destinations like Dallas and Phoenix, but that's not true of all the available flights. Prices vary depending on how long you can wait to get out and shred, where you're flying out of, and other factors.

American Airlines is currently offering an early November roundtrip flight from Dallas to Aspen for $327, but skiers and snowboarders who can hold out a while, or don't mind booking a one-way and staying a while, will be treated with even bigger savings.

Here's a sample of flights American Airlines is offering right now:

  • Dallas (DFW) to Denver (DEN) - December 3, 2021 to December 6, 2021 - Roundtrip - $97
