One of those tourism operations that is likely to take longer to recover is Aspen Lodge Resort and Spa. This well-known establishment suffered greatly as a result of a mudslide which landed right in the parking lot of the main lodge, disturbing critical utilities infrastructure like the freshwater supply. Getting the Lodge back to market-readiness is likely to take many months.
