Aspen, Snowmass swap lodging outlooks for June
Bookings for June lodging in Aspen have decreased compared with June 2014, but they have increased for Snowmass by nearly the same amount, according to a report released Tuesday.
Aspen’s 9 percent drop in paid occupancy for June and Snowmass’ 23 percent gain from this time last year nearly balance out the number of overall bookings for both areas combined, according to Bill Tomcich, president of Stay Aspen Snowmass, a central reservations agency. Overall, Aspen and Snowmass are one-tenth of 1 percent behind last year for June bookings, he said in a statement.
“As we look ahead toward this Food & Wine weekend, things are going to be really busy but slightly off from last year,” Tomcich said. “What this means is we still have some rooms to sell, but most rooms that do remain available are commanding some mighty hefty premiums.”
