February sees another increase in sales

SNOWMASS VILLAGE - Sales tax revenue in Snowmass Village was up 15.1 percent year over year in February, according to a report released by the Finance Department.

About half - 48.6 percent - of that revenue came from the lodging industry. That matches the trend in occupancy for the month: Hotels were 72.6 percent full in February, the highest rate in a single month for the town since that data started being recorded in 2005.

Every category of industry saw an increase, however. Restaurants saw a 14.7 percent increase; food, drug and liquor stores saw a 12 percent jump; sports equipment and clothing rose 11.7 percent; general retail 9.4 percent; utilities 7.2 percent; and lodging 6.9 percent.

Lodging tax was up 18.4 percent.

Winter revenue overall is pacing up 8.8 percent over last season.
