Montrose, Travel and Hotels


There are numerous hotels and bed and breakfasts located in Montrose. Travel time from most area accomodations to the class site is approximately 10-15 minutes by car.

Travel and airlines:

If you are flying into Montrose the airport designator is MTJ. Most flights will route through Denver or Salt Lake to connect with Montrose however
there are 2 or 3 direct flights from other cities during the ski season and possibly during the summer months as well.


Major car rental companies have offices either at or very near the airport. If you will be renting a vehicle you may wish to book in advance, While I have never used a taxi in Montrose a student has reprted that taxi service is relatively expensive here.

Montrose is an enjoyable small town located in the beautiful Uncompahgre valley in western Colorado. There are some very nice hot springs in the area [about 40 minutes away] and the Black Canyon of the Gunnison River [America's newest National Park] is a must see only 10 miles east of Montrose. The mountain towns of Ouray and Telluride are fairly close by with Ouray 35 miles away and Telluride 65 miles. Plan on doing some soaking and sightseeing while you are here!
