January occupancy down; room rates up

Feb 18, 2016

  Occupancy numbers for January in Snowmass and Aspen came in just shy of last year’s bookings. Both resorts filled about 70 percent of their lodge rooms. Carolyn Sackariason has more.

Last-minute bookings are what saved January for both resorts — even though Aspen came in 2 percent behind last year and Snowmass 3 percent. According to central reservations agency Stay Aspen Snowmass, those numbers are remarkable given how light Australian business was, along with the X Games being a week later than usual.
