"There's no housing in our community, in any of these resort communities right now," vice president of communications Jeff Hanle told FOX Business’ Ashley Webster. "So there's been a real shift in dynamics."
"It's always been a problem, but it's a bigger problem now because of remote workers moving here, because of Airbnbs and those types of things," Hanle explained.
In an effort to meet increased demand and keep and attract more workers, Hanle said the resort raised wages for both existing employees and new hires.
"We've bumped our starting pay up to $17 an hour to start, and then that rippled through the company," he said. "But that's still not enough."
Now, they’re offering incentives to Aspen locals who open their doors and house one of their employees.
"We'll give you something of $1,200 value to use in our company," Hanle explained, "a season pass, 10 lift tickets, $1,200 at one of our hotels or one of our restaurants."
