Current DestiMetrics Reports

EXCERPT FROM THE NOVEMBER 30 EXECUTIVE SUMMARY | LOOKING FORWARD: The coming three months will tell much about the ongoing recovery, particularly with respect to the job market, where we would expect to see not only the creation of seasonal jobs, but the conversion of many of those positions to permanent in 2015. Consumer ought to follow suit, as low gasoline prices, increased earnings and returns from financial markets help boost confidence. On the cautionary side, we always look to Mother Nature as a potential spoiler, and recent warming trends at mountain destinations have raised a few warning flags, though we’re early in the season yet. Locally, Jackson Hole on-the-books Occupancy for December 2014 is up 10.4 percent compared to 2013, accompanied by an increase in rate of 3.0 percent.
