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.
