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.
