ASPEN, Colo. (AP) — A Colorado ski resort company announced job cuts for the first time in nearly 20 years as it anticipates decreased business because of the pandemic.
Aspen Skiing Co. told employees that 50 positions would be eliminated at its properties, which include the Snowmass and Aspen Mountain resorts, The Aspen Times reported Friday.
Vice President of Communications Jeff Hanle said the affected positions are across the company. He did not provide specific information on the jobs eliminated.
President and CEO Mike Kaplan told employees in an email that many of the positions are already vacant or will lead to early retirements, but nine people were laid off.
