For those getting cold feet or fearing the worst for this winter, relief has returned again in the form of direct flights.

Westjet will once again offer flights from Prince George to Puerto Vallarta, Mexico as part of their “Snow to Sand Service.”

The flights will leave Prince George every Saturday until the end of April, starting last Saturday.

While Westjet has offered the service for the past two winters, Air Transat offered the service before them, and it has been a popular way for northerners to escape to warmer temperatures to recharge before taking on the rest of winter.

President and CEO of the Prince George Airport Authority, John Gibson, says “This is a very popular service year after year and we are thrilled to see the snow to sand service continue out of YXS.”

The cost of sticking your feet into warm sand starts at $299 return, or a person could stay home and enjoy the snow care of the ski hill and warm their toes by the fire.
