Alaska said it is starting new nonstop flights between Portland and Reno/Tahoe, Calif., on Nov. 8, between Seattle and Steamboat Springs, Colo., on Dec. 18, and between San Diego and Mammoth, Calif., on Dec. 19.

This is addition to the airline´s increase in flights between Los Angeles and Mammoth, starting Dec. 1, and seasonal service from Seattle and Los Angeles to Sun Valley, Idaho, starting Dec. 14.
