Occupancy rises in June

More people stayed in Snowmass Village in June than in the same month last year, and they paid more per night’s stay, as well.

Hotels were 28.4 percent full on average across Snowmass Village, a 6 percent increase from the occupancy rate in June 2012, according to DestiMetrics, formerly known as the Mountain Travel Research Program. The revenue per available room also increased by 12.2 percent.

As of June 30, on-the-books occupancy for the month of July was at 40.6 percent, a 24.3 percent increase from last year.

“Looking ahead toward the month of July overall, again Aspen is pacing very slightly below last year as of June 30, while Snowmass Village is pacing considerably ahead (expected because nearly 400 rooms were out of service last year during the remodel of the Westin and Wildwood),” said Bill Tomcich, president of reservations agency Stay Aspen Snowmass. “In the case of Snowmass Village, I would observe that overall business for the resort this summer is ‘excellent compared with last year, but still lots of rooms left to sell.’”
