Royal Gorge reducing winter hours of operation

Thu, Nov  6, 2008 - By Greyson Howard

Royal Gorge, Ice Lakes Lodge, and Rainbow Lodge will all be cutting back to five days a week rather than seven this winter.

“It’s an issue of demand, an issue of cost, and it’s a staffing issue,” said Mike Livak, project manager with Royal Gorge.

Business is normally slower on Tuesdays and Wednesdays — the two days the resort and lodges plan to be closed — Livak said. Sometimes it costs us more to open the doors than if we don’t,” Livak said.

As a small resort, staffing seven days a week can be a challenge as well, he said.

Royal Gorge will open back up seven days a week during holiday periods, however, Livak said.
