Phase Three Lodging Capacity Remains at 50% Occupancy in Telluride, Colorado


We are now in Phase Three of opening, a period that runs from July 14 through August 3. During this time period, paid short-term lodging remains limited to 50% - that’s 50% occupancy for a 21-day span. For a self-managed property (Airbnb, VRBO and similar platforms), this equates to 11 days of rental during this time period.  For multi-unit companies and hotels/lodges, half of its rooms or units are available to rent for the 21-day span. During Phase Three, the aggregate paid occupancy for the destination is 50%; there are nights when we are less than 50% occupancy and other nights when we are greater than the 50% occupancy mark. The maximum single-night occupancy for multi-unit lodgers is 65%.  Click here to review occupancy numbers through the end of Phase 3, August 3.



As we hit the busy month of July, air both locally and nationally has been showing steady signs of recovery. This may flatten with the current spike in nationwide cases.

We have seen four straight weeks of positive bookings, hitting 40-50% of normal weekly activity. Montrose flights are showing load factors above 65%, and TEX flights have also started to pick up bookings.

With the recently added second daily DFW flight, our target capacity for the core summer remains at about 50% of average. Current passenger counts are currently about 40% of average.
