Airport Information

The Leadville Airport is North America’s highest public use airport at an altitude of 9,934 feet. Located in central Colorado, 2 miles southwest of the city of Leadville, the airport provides a unique role to the area and communities of Lake and Summit Counties, linking them to the National Air Transportation System. Due to the high elevation of the airport, it has become recognized for high altitude testing and training for the military and aerospace companies worldwide.

In the summer outdoor activities such as hiking, biking, and various other sports attract many to our airport. During the winter the airport’s proximity to several major ski areas makes it an ideal jumping off place for winter sport enthusiasts. Leadville receives more than 156 inches of snow every year! We are proud to say that with the assistance of our very capable snow removal team we keep the airport open and operating year around so you’ll never miss a powder day.
