Vermont Tourism Industry Revenues Down

Apr 22, 2021

Vermont’s tourism industry is down an estimated $700 million to date more than a year into the coronavirus pandemic.

The Vermont Department of Tourism says it will take more than a strong spring and summer for businesses to start to recover.

Sam von Trapp, the director and executive vice president of Trapp Family Lodge in Stowe, says it will be a long time before a full recovery.

WPTZ-TV reports that losses to the ski industry make up about a seventh of the overall tourism revenue losses. Towns surrounding ski areas and local businesses have also taken a big hit.
