Telluride Air and Lodging: July 11 - 17

Via Telluride Tourism Board


The July 4th holiday weekend finished strong, with total destination occupancy 14% ahead of last year at 76%, and a flat average daily rate (ADR) of $585. Paid occupancy was 20% higher than 2023, resulting in a 19% increase in revenue per available room (RevPAR). 
The rest of the month is tracking slightly behind last year, with total occupancy pacing 5% lower than 2023, and ADR up by 4%. With the bump during the 4th and lower trends for the remainder of July, total destination occupancy for the month is 2% lower than July 2023, paid occupancy is pacing 4% behind, and ADR is 2% higher. 
August is currently pacing 2% ahead in total occupancy and paid occupancy is flat, while ADR is 6% higher. The increases are most likely due to a majority of days over Labor Day/Film Festival falling in August rather than September as they did in 2023. This also creates a shift in September metrics, where total occupancy is currently pacing 12% behind last year, paid occupancy is down 21%, and ADR is 6% lower. September metrics indicate an opportunity for lodgers to offer specials or booking incentives to move the needle in a positive direction. 

With the summer marketing campaign live, and booking windows shorter than winter months, lodging metrics can change quickly. Stay tuned for up-to-date lodging forecasts in the weekly Peak Sheet to ensure your business is properly prepared! 


Weekly air bookings continue to outpace YOY numbers, including a surge in close-in bookings for July and August. Both months are now up 15%+ with September just up and October flat. A large share of the gains are on the new mainline (large) jets on the DEN-MTJ route, with a likely higher level of local and regional usage. Taking that into account when forecasting tourism traffic, visitor numbers are likely several points lower than the pacing above. All markets are doing well, with the Denver Air flights to TEX still needing added exposure with your client bases. The Winter 24-25 baseline schedule is also live, with changes and additions coming over the next couple months.
