JACKSON, Wyo. — Based on data released from the Jackson Hole Chamber of Commerce, Memorial Day weekend occupancy levels on the books are at 85.1%, town alone is reporting 92.1%.

This is a significant increase compared to 2019. For all of Jackson Hole, the actuals for Memorial Day weekend 2019 were just above 64%.

The Jackson Hole Chamber of Commerce releases weekly data representing weekend occupancy levels in Jackson Hole. The Chamber reports what the actual occupancy levels were from prior weekends and what is “on the books” for the coming weekends. Data is collected from Jackson Hole lodging properties, which includes Teton Village.

Kent Elliot, Director of Destination Global Sales at Jackosn Hole Chamber of Commerce compiles the weekly reports.

In this week’s report, Elliot said, “I expect that the occupancies between Town and Teton Village will become closer as the Teton Village properties fully reopen, and this coming weekend and the next two weeks strongly indicate that.”

Next weekend, June 4 and June 5, Jackson Hole lodging properties are reporting 89.5% occupancies on the books. Occupancies on the books are increasing weekend to weekend as the summer season continues to unfold. Last weekend, May 21 and May 22, actual occupancy levels were 71.6%, a 3.8% increase from the weekend prior.

“These certainly are unprecedented times, it just shows the pent-up demand and the willingness to travel,” said Elliot.
